These are shots of the Opel Insignia Country Tourer prototype being tested. With the amount of camouflage on the test car gradually decreasing over the last few of sightings, it seems like Opel will have the model ready for a debut possibly at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
The Opel Insignia Country Tourer will sell alongside rivals like the Volkswagen Passat Alltrack, and will come equipped with an AWD setup. However, unlike its predecessor, there’s no confirmation yet if Opel will introduce the cheaper front-wheel-drive version post the official launch.
This iteration can be visually identified by the extra body cladding on the bumpers, and all the wheel arches. Furthermore, the most significant update in the new car will be increased ground clearance that’s visible in the pictures. Opel will also use a new style for the alloy wheels and tweak the styling within the cabin to set it apart from the outgoing model.
What buyers get from the Opel Insignia Country Tourer, apart from the raised ride height, is the extra grip from the AWD system that also accommodates torque vectoring, a spacious cabin with 520-litres of luggage space and the practicality from the boot space expanding to 1,638-litres when the last row folds.
