Vauxhall Geneva Show debuts 2017
- Insignia Grand Sport, Sports Tourer and Crossland X in treble debut
- OnStar personal assistant with hotel room booking and parking spot search
- New Vauxhall Exclusive programme provides unlimited choice of colours
- Five-star year: Vauxhall production offensive with five new models this year in full flow
THE all-new Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport and Insignia Sports Tourer models will headline the Vauxhall Geneva Show debuts (07-09 March 2017).
As well as the new Insignia, Vauxhall will also debut its Crossland X crossover SUV model in a triple unveil of new hardware.
As well as the metal, Vauxhall will also reveal two new OnStar services and the new Exclusive programme.
New Insignia at Geneva
This new Insignia is based on completely a new vehicle architecture with revised proportions for a more spacious interior, sportier appearance and an improved road stance.
Vauxhall has always been good at looking after company car drivers with plenty of spec appeal, low P11D costs and low CO2 emissions. While we have no word on the latter two, the spec looks highly promising.
There is a raft of top technologies for safer, more relaxing and more comfortable driving experience than before:
- Next-generation IntelliLux LED matrix lighting;
- Lane Keep Assist;
- Head-up Display
- Unique AGR-certified premium seats;
- Front- and rear-seat heating; and
- Heated wind screen are just some examples.
Outstanding infotainment and connectivity are also on board thanks to the latest generation IntelliLink systems and Vauxhall OnStar, which with the launch of the Insignia Grand Sport, will offer even more functionality for customers. New OnStar features allow occupants to book hotel rooms and search for suitable parking spots via an OnStar Advisor.
With unique two-tone paintwork and SUV-styling, the all-new Vauxhall Crossland X will debut offering business drivers flexibility and functionality in equal portions..
At just 4.21 metres long the Crossland X is more compact than the Mokka X, and a full 16cm shorter than the Astra Hatch, offering owners greater convenience while driving and manoeuvring in towns and cities. Adding to Crossland X’s urban appeal is an elevated seating position and an overall height, which is raised ten centimetres above the Astra’s.
Vauxhall Exclusive paint programme
Another first will be Vauxhall Exclusive, which allows you to select your car in the colour of your choice, using any colour they like.
As well as choosing the colour, you can also decide on one of three distinctive paint finishes: tri-coat, metallic paint and pearl.
In addition, Vauxhall Exclusive will offer further personalisation including leather options, a selection of wheels and decorative design elements solely-reserved for Exclusive customers.
Vauxhall believes these new debuts will set the scene for a ground-breaking 2017, with a total of five major product launches that will add further variety to its range – already one of the largest in the UK – while at the same time entering new market segments.
Vauxhall will offer a compelling alternative to ‘premium’ models in the D-sector with the all new Insignia Grand Sport, Sports Tourer and Country Tourer, while also growing volume still further in the SUV/crossover class with the Crossland X and the Grandland X.
