Vauxhall unveils three new models at Geneva

06-Mar-2017

Vauxhall will unveil three new models at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show (7-19 March 2017) – the Insignia Grand Sport, Insignia Sports Tourer and Crossland X.

 

The world will see all three for the first time during the Vauxhall/Opel press conference on Tuesday 7 March at 10:00 (11:00 CET) in Hall 2 of Palexpo (stand number 2231).

 

We’ll also reveal two new OnStar services and our new Exclusive programme at Geneva.

Insignia

Following on from the previous Insignia generation – which won 2009 European Car of the Year and sold over 25,000 in the UK last year – our new Insignia boasts an all-new architecture. This means more space inside, a more athletic appearance and an improved road stance.


The new Insignia Sports Tourer in action

Advanced technologies make driving the Insignia safer, more relaxing and more comfortable. To give a few examples: next-generation IntelliLux LED matrix lighting, Lane Keep Assist, Head-up Display, the unique AGR-certified premium seats, front- and rear-seat heating, and a heated windscreen.

 

Outstanding infotainment and connectivity are also on board, thanks to the latest IntelliLink systems and Vauxhall OnStar. And with the launch of the Insignia Grand Sport, OnStar will offer customers even

 

more functionality. New OnStar features allow occupants to book hotel rooms and search for suitable parking spots via an OnStar Advisor.

Crossland X

Crisp and compact on the outside, spacious and flexible on the inside, with unique two-tone paintwork and SUV-styling, Vauxhall’s all-new Crossland X will also debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

 

The Crossland X’s recently-launched sibling, Mokka X, has all-wheel-drive capability, is 70mm higher and has larger wheels for adventure. By contrast, Crossland X has a family focus, with a spacious cabin that provides practicality and flexibility.

 

At just 4.21 metres long, the Crossland X is also more compact than the Mokka X, offering owners greater convenience for city driving. Adding to Crossland X’s urban appeal is an elevated seating position and an overall height that sits ten centimetres above the Astra’s.

 

Exceptional driver and passenger comfort is an obvious priority for a car in this class. The Crossland X has specially designed AGR-certified seats for the driver and front passenger. And rear passengers can adjust their seating position to increase leg-room.

Other Crossland X innovations make driving safer and more comfortable, including:

 

  • 180-degree panoramic rear-view camera
  • advanced park assist
  • forward collision alert with pedestrian
  • detection and autonomous emergency braking
  • lane departure warning
  • speed sign recognition
  • side blind-spot alert.

Vauxhall Exclusive

Taking personalisation to the next level, Vauxhall Exclusive lets you select your car in the colour of your choice, using any colour you like. You can also decide on one of three distinctive paint finishes: tri-coat, metallic paint and pearl.

 

And that’s just the start. Vauxhall Exclusive will offer further personalisation, including leather options, a selection of wheels, and decorative design elements solely for Exclusive customers.


A five-star year ahead

In 2017, five major product launches will add variety to the Vauxhall range – already one of the largest in the UK – while at the same time enabling the company to enter new market segments.

 

As well as boosting its range, Vauxhall will bolster its credentials in the D-sector with the all-new Insignia Grand Sport, Sports Tourer and Country Tourer. These offer a compelling alternative to ‘premium’ models.

 

The company will also grow volume in the SUV/crossover class with the Crossland X and the Grandland X.
