The third body style to be added to the popular range will be available with an all new turbo-charged 1.6-litre engine too, which is being rolled out across the range.
The 2009 European Car of the Year has been a resounding success, bucking a downward sales trend with more than 15,000 orders taken in the first month of the car reaching dealer showrooms in the UK.
The new model arrives on April 10 and offers an impressive 540-litre load area with the rear seats up.
Dropping the 60:40 split rear seats converts the Sports Tourer into an even more capacious load-lugger, with a volume of up to 1,530-litres.
‘Buyers in the mid-size estate market are craving more practicality than ever before to cater for families and lifestyle activities,’ said Andy Gilson, Vauxhall’s Marketing Director.
‘But they’re not content to compromise on style and running costs, which is why the Insignia Sports Tourer is such an ideal choice in this growing sector.’
The UK has traditionally been a strong market for estate cars, which is why Vauxhall is predicting that more than 15 per cent of all Insignia sales will be attributed to this model.
