Vauxhall introduces 200PS Insignia 1.6 Direct Injection Turbo

Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport

Vauxhall has introduced a new 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine to the Insignia range.

Available in Grand Sport and Sports Tourer body styles, the four-cylinder engine produces 200PS and 280Nm of torque.

Prices start at £25,610 for the Grand Sport SRi VX-Line, which is about the same as the 2.0-litre diesel.

It can accelerate the Insignia from 0-60mph in 7.2 seconds. Official fuel economy is 44.8mpg with CO2 emissions from 146g/km.

Company car drivers will save around £150 per year when compared to the 2.0-litre 170PS diesel in the same trim.

In order to reduce particulate emissions as much as possible, the new engine features a close-coupled Gasoline Particulate Filter for optimum regeneration. The Insignia 1.6-litre Direct Injection Turbo meets the Euro 6d-Temp emissions standard.

The new engine is available to order now.

    Is this 1.6 petrol turbo a GM engine or is it the PSA Prince unit?
