New Insignia - Car of the Year 2009

Delivering sub 140g/km CO2 emissions
At the heart of Vauxhall’s newest ecoFLEX model is a powerful, Euro 5 compliant 2.0-litre common-rail turbo diesel. A multitude of detail improvements to the powertrain and wind resistant factors enabled engineers to minimise fuel consumption and reduce emissions by 10% without affecting driving fun. In fact, the new 160PS ecoFLEX engine will emit below 140g/km CO2 using the innovative Clean-Tech process to ensure lowest possible emissions putting it in the 18% bracket for Benefit-in-Kind company car taxation.*1
No compromise for Drivers
New Insignia ecoFLEX offers economy without compromise combining award-winning premium styling and innovative technology with powerful propulsion and yet highest possible engine efficiency. Drivers will be pleased to hear that Insignia ecoFLEX sprints from zero to 62mph in 9.5 seconds, reaches a top speed of up to 135mph and boasts 350Nm maximum torque from a low 1750rpm, temporarily increased to 380Nm via an ‘overboost’ function. More good news is that drivers get a wide choice of specification as the ecoFLEX engine is available on the following feature packed trim levels:
  • S
  • Exclusiv
  • Exclusiv Nav
  • SE

Class-leading aerodynamics
A major factor contributing to the vehicle’s low fuel consumption and emission figures is the incredible level of investment in reducing the car’s drag co-efficient. A lowered chassis, the use of low rolling resistance tyres and a host of detailed body adjustments have produced a CD of just 0.27, making it one of the most aerodynamic production saloons in the world. Many of the modifications have also improved the Insignia’s aero-acoustics, resulting in an interior cabin that is quieter than any Vauxhall before.
