The new Insignia family will soon be completed when the Opel Insignia Country Tourer makes its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.

Defining features include protective under-body guards front and rear, combined with prominent wheel-arch and lower body cladding and dual exhaust tailpipes. All-wheel drive will ensure grip and sure-footed handling.

It is teamed with a 250hp, 2.0-litre SIDI direct injection turbo petrol engine or a 163hp, 2.0 CDTi diesel engine that gives up to 380Nm of torque.

Dave Sheeran, Managing Director, Opel Ireland, explained: "The new Insignia Country Tourer enables us to offer customers a sporty alternative in the larger, mid-size class.

"We're confident the Insignia Country Tourer will be a great addition and will attract new customers to our brand because it combines athletic appeal and German engineering at an affordable price."

Prices and Irish launch details will be announced in September.
