New Vauxhall Insignia range features all-new powertrain line-up

Available as a five-door hatch, four-door sedan and sports tourer estate, the new Vauxhall Insignia range's powertrain line-up has been broadened with four new engines, including an all-new gasoline engine and new derivatives of the existing 2-liter CDTi unit.
Now available with a choice of three power outputs – 120ps, 140ps and 163ps – the new Insignia range’s 2-liter CDTi engine offers CO2 emissions of 99g/km (76.3mpg combined) for the lower two outputs and 114g/km (65.7mpg combined) for the higher output unit (figures for hatch models). But performance hasn’t been compromised, with the 120ps and 140ps models producing up to 320Nm and 370Nm of torque respectively, and the 163ps model up to 380Nm. Meanwhile, the new ecoFLEX hatch diesel engines offer power output of 120ps and 140ps, emitting 99g/km of CO2.
Also new to the engine line-up are two direct injection gasoline units: the new-generation 1.6-liter SIDI, which recently launched in the 2013 Cascada convertible, produces 170ps and 280Nm, and the 2-liter SIDI, producing 250ps and 400Nm. Both engines can be coupled with a six-speed manual transmission and start/stop function, or with a new, low-friction six-speed automatic gearbox. In addition to front-wheel-drive, the 2-liter SIDI turbo is also available with four-wheel-drive.
Now on sale, first deliveries to customers will commence in October following its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
