Opel Insignia Tourer Makes For A Slick-Lookin’ Taxi 7
Dec
Posted by Carscoops Staff in opel, Opel Insignia, taxi on 12 7th, 2017


Visit most any city in Europe and most of the taxi cabs are bound to be Mercedes – E-Class sedans especially. But that’s not the only option, as another German automaker is here to point out.

That automaker is Opel, which is showcasing its new Insignia wagon as an ideal taxicab.

Instead of simply selling the consumer version and letting the cabdrivers, fleet operators, or upfitters perform the modifications, Opel offers the Insignia with just about everything need for taxicab duty straight from the factory – from the illuminated roof sign to a meter integrated into the rearview mirror.

Professional drivers can choose between the svelte Insignia Sports Tourer or the more rugged Insignia Country Tourer, in either Taxi Selection or Taxi Dynamic trim, with varying equipment levels, priced from €22,639 in Germany (before tax).

Either way, you’re looking at a nearly 20-cubic-foot luggage compartment expandable to almost 60 cubic feet with the rear seats folded flat, making the Insignia a rather flexible and accommodating way to move passengers and their stuff.

Drivers who need more needn’t look far, as Opel also offers taxi versions of the Zafira minivan and Vivaro full-size van for commercial transportation as well.

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in new cars, opel, Opel Insignia, prices, vauxhall on 12 5th, 2017


After its public premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show last September, the Opel Insignia GSi is now available for order, in both saloon and estate guise, in several European markets.

Pricing for the 2018 Insingia GSi Grand Sport starts from €45,595 ($54,212) in Germany, tax included, whereas the GSi Sports Tourer (that’s station wagon in Opel-speak) starts from €46,595 ($55,401).

The GSi is available with two powertrains; a 2.0-liter bi-turbo diesel that delivers 210PS (207hp) and a healthy 480Nm (354lb-ft) of torque and a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol unit rated at 260PS (256hp) and 400Nm (295lb-ft) of torque. Both versions use an 8-speed automatic transmission.

In addition to the two powertrains, the new Insignia GSi also gets the FlexRide chassis, adaptive all-wheel drive with torque vectoring, lowering springs that reduce ride height by 10mm (0.4in), Brembo brakes, and Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires. Moreover, the driver can choose between Standard, Tour, and Sport modes, plus the GSi-exclusive Competition, which is activated via the ESP button.
