The Insignia Grand Sport boasts revamped coupé-like styling and increased room for rear passengers. Significant weight reduction and four-wheel drive mean improved handling and fuel economy too. Get into a Insignia and feel it for yourself.
The Insignia Grand Sport can achieve a combined fuel economy of up to 70.6mpg and carbon emissions as low as 105g/km. Pleasing your fleet manager is easy with certain models having a P11D as low as £16,930. And a Benefit-in-Kind tax rate of 21%, means the Grand Sport offers an excellent business investment as well as sleek looks and driving enjoyment.
A longer aluminium bonnet and more prominent front grille gives the Grand Sport a sleek, purposeful look. The distinct signature of the optional IntelliLux LED Matrix headlights enhances the effect. Handily, they also provide excellent illumination. And a selection of alloy wheels in a range of sizes and patterns means you can make your Insignia Grand Sport ‘yours’ in many ways. The wheelbase has been lengthened by 92mm to 2829mm – so you’ll have more leg, shoulder, and headroom for both front and rear passengers. There’s also a practical luggage capacity of 490 litres (extendable to 1,450 litres with the rear seats folded down). That should make your next shopping trip to Calais interesting.
The Insignia Grand Sport features brand new driver assistance systems. The advanced front camera, standard as part of the Driving Assistance Pack One, tirelessly watches the road ahead. The Driving Assistance Pack One also includes forward collision alert with automatic city emergency braking, following distance indicator, lane departure warning with lane assist and traffic sign recognition. Designed to keep you alert, calm and to help avoid mishaps. The optional Adaptive Cruise Control reduces the effort involved in long motorway drives by automatically maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle in front. The Head-Up Display, which is an option for vehicles fitted with Navigation as standard, allows you to view important information such as your current speed and directions from your satellite navigation system, so you’ll be free of distractions. We still, however, have no control over which songs your kids will sing to on the radio.
The Insignia Grand Sport keeps you safely connected to the outside world. The touchscreen-controlled IntelliLink infotainment system is compatible with smartphones using the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ interfaces. There’s also voice-activated satnav. And telephones can be charged using the handy point in the centre console. The OnStar system is another useful feature that keeps you updated. Assessing the condition of your vehicle, such as tyre pressure and oil levels, and whether the car is due a service, will be reported to you regularly. So, better communication than most teenagers at least.
The Insignia Grand Sport offers a choice of three petrol and three diesel engines. The smallest, the 1.6 litre 110PS diesel, achieves a combined fuel economy of 70.6mpg. And with carbon emissions of 105g/km, you won’t choke on the running costs either way. For power and pace, the 2.0 litre 260PS petrol unit offers 0-60mph in just 6.9 seconds. Whichever engine you choose, the long wheelbase and revamped suspension means you’ll get a smooth ride. And weight reduction aiding crisp yet stable handling means you won’t just be along for one. Road, wind, and engine noise have also been reduced. You’ll be redefining what you mean by a ‘quiet’ road in no time.
