The 2017 Vauxhall Insignia is scheduled to get launched next year.
Months ahead of its official launch, a couple of pictures from the brand has emerged that gave us a good idea of the new features, technology and the design changes about to go into the Insignia.
These images were revealed by Opel, Vauxhall’s sister brand. While spy shots are usually of low quality and fully camouflaged, the 2017 Vauxhall Insignia pictures are clear and legible. They confirm a large front grille with vertical lines, sharp headlights and the bonnet with the logo in the center. The grille is smaller compared to the previous model and there’s a thick crease inspired by the LaCrosse. The corners of the headlights are illuminated for better visibility in the road and the designers have used three different interiors lights that could be spotted in the newly released teaser image.
It was confirmed by Vauxhall as the company said that they have used 32 LEDs in the headlamp to allow it to transition between different light patterns and functionalities provided in it. Compared to the Astra, it’s twice the number of LEDs they have used. And, we can confirm how good they are only when the car gets launched and a proper road test is conducted. Some of the functions found in the headlights include curve, spotlight illumination, and bunch of others that increase long range visibility. An exclusive high beam spotlight offers visibility up to 400 meters, the best you could get in this category.
The 2017 Vauxhall Insignia will be available in three different variants including a large Insignia Sport Tourer, a small five-door hatchback named the Insignia Grand Sport and an Insignia Country Tourer which will be a durable, four-wheel model designed for adventurers. The flagship variant from Vauxhall is expected to go strongly against other offerings in the market including Mercedes Benz C Class, BMW 3 series and the Ford Mondeo.
There are plans to introduce four more Vauxhall models in 2017 along with those the three Insignia models the auto brand plans to offer. They are expected to significantly boost the number of cars available in their lineup and help them create a strong brand image in the market. While it is not an easy job to beat Mercedes or Ford as they have such a large user base, buyers always look for newer models that offer more features at affordable pricing. Vauxhall could tap into this requirement.
