Sleek new look and advanced tech for Insignia
INSIGNIA? STAID middle-ofthe-road motor?
Well, think again. This car, much beloved by middle managers has had a bit of a makeover and now looks sleeker than ever.
More than that, it has some interesting technical innovations such as an allwheel drive system which delivers traction on all road surfaces.
Vauxhall say the midsize market segment is not usually the place to look for an advanced chassis technology but this is set to change when the Insignia Grand Sport hits the market early this year.
The Grand Sport, with the all-new eight-speed automatic transmission is available with a torque vectoring all-wheel drive system that aims to deliver exceptional levels of grip and handling.
Torque vectoring also makes the car safer by controlling the distribution of torque according to changes in throttle position, steering angle and road surface, thus reducing the amount of yaw. This intelligent use of torque distribution, also known as “yaw damping”, results in neutral vehicle behaviour, making the car more stable and steerable for the driver.
