Vauxhall has unveiled the next-generation of its flagship model, the Insignia upper medium model.
According to the brand, the new model incorporates a number of design and technology improvements. Since its introduction a decade ago, Vauxhall said it has sold 300,000 units in the UK alone.
Vauxhall said the new design “reimagines the Insignia’s front and rear styling” by reshaping the exterior appearance of the car to accommodate new technology and equipment. As such, the front of the car has a new look to house the LED headlights, while the rear of the Insignia is revised to include new features extending to a rear-view camera and a rear cross traffic alert system.
The brand added the new Insignia looks lower and wider than before, thanks to the position of the air inlets with integrated fog lamps, while the company said it looks sharper and more coupe-like in its styling than before.
New tech, meanwhile, includes a new rear-view camera that improves rearward vision, while safety in reversing can be increased with the optional rear cross traffic alert, which uses radar sensors to detect objects 90 degrees to the left or right behind the car, up to a distance of 20m away. Other driver assistive technology includes:
- Forward collision with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection
- Lane keep assist
- Side blind spot alert
- Adaptive cruise control with emergency braking
- Traffic sign recognition
- Advanced park assist
- Head-up display
Vauxhall added its infotainment system is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while top-of-the-line models features an eight-inch touchscreen and a number of Connected Navigation services, including real-time traffic information, online map updates and predictive navigation for route planning.
Prices, specifications and an on-sale date have not been announced at this stage.
