Yesterday, we were graced with the return of a Buick station wagon in the form of the 2018 Buick Regal TourX. However, it has humble beginnings across the pond in the form of the Opel Insignia Country Tourer. Ditto for the recently revealed Holden Commodore Tourer. And Opel has taken the wraps off of the latest iteration of its soft-roading wagon.
The Opel Insignia Country Tourer offers up an identical 0.79-inch increase in ride height and underbody protection for when the going gets rough. It’s lighter and leaner, just like the Insignia Grand Sport and Sports Tourer are, but the Country Tourer looks to capture the adventurous hearts.
All-wheel drive with torque vectoring is standard as is a five-link rear suspension cater to handle adventurous activities. Opel’s FlexRide chassis is the cherry atop the all-new soft roader. Though, its rugged looks and design cues don’t deter from the premium amenities found inside.
The spacious interior, offering 58.8 cubic feet of loading space, boasts premium material appointments such as a hands-free liftgate, ergonomic, heated front seats, adaptive cruise control and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. Of course, we can’t forget about Opel OnStar, either.
Furthermore, Opel will also extend the “Opel Exclusive” program to the Country Tourer. The program allows customers to choose a color, any color, to finish their Insignia in with a provided sample or image. Additional wheel designs and interior treatments are also part of the program.
Opel didn’t disclose what would be powering the latest Insignia Country Tourer, but gasoline and diesel engines are nearly certain.
Look for the Opel Insignia Country Tourer to make its public debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show this coming September.
