Vauxhall’s most powerful diesel engine ever is now available in the Insignia range. Known as the Insignia BiTurbo it is available with a choice of five door Hatch and Sports Tourer bodies in SRi ,SRi Vx-line and Elite trims.
The turbocharged diesel is based on the existing 1956cc unit that powers the Vauxhall Insignia, Astra and new Zafira range. In BiTurbo form the engine produces up to 35PS more power and a significant 50Nm of extra torque, reducing the 0-60mph time by nearly one second to 8.2 seconds (Insignia FWD Hatch).
As with other models in the Insignia range, the BiTurbo has the option of Vauxhall’s new Front Camera System, with traffic sign recognition and lane departure warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control, which allows the driver to maintain a set distance from the car in front.
Prices for the new Insignia BiTurbo which is on sale now start from £27,120.
