2017 Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport Specifications
The New 2017 Opel Insignia Grand Sport features simple styling and doesn’t get many design improvement. The most noteworthy changes are in the shape and size of the car. The height of the car and the length of the wheelbase is slightly increased, and as a result, the cabin room is more spacious.
Despite the increased dimension, the weight of the 2017 Insignia Grand Sport car is actually decreased by 150 kg to 175 kg hence better performance and fuel efficiency. Furthermore, opposite to other cars that get lighter weight thanks to lightweight materials, Insignia Grand Sport is still capable of featuring high-strength steel in its construction.
