Aftermarket Insignia SportsTourer by Steinmetz

Following the official unveiling of the Insignia 5-door by Steinmetz at the Essen Motor Show 2008, the German tuning house today announced an aftermarket version of the Insignia SportsTourer. The model will make its world debut at the Tuning World Bodensee 2009, according to a release by the company.

In essence, the aftermarket Insignia comes with all kind of enhancements, including a new front spoiler, a restyled front grille, a special kit for lowering the body by approximately 25 mm plus a wheel-tire combination in 20-inch with 245/35/R20. A two-piece spoiler has been installed on the roof to improve the aerodynamics and improve the overall appearance of the car. Steinmetz exhaust tailpipes are also included in the package, "giving the rear a more muscular appearance," as the company itself mentioned in a statement for the press.

Unfortunately, there are no engine upgrades for the time being, but Steinmetz says a performance enhancement for the 2.0 CDTI will be unveiled at the Opel Meeting in Oschersleben on 04.06. - 07.06.09.

Here are all the improvements brought to Insignia SportsTourer by the Steinmetz tuning house:

  • Alloy wheels ST7 20″, in polished black & white
  • Lowering
  • Front grille
  • Front spoiler to pedestrian protection directives
  • Roof spoiler (SportsTourer only)
  • Left tailpipe trim
  • Left/right tailpipe trims
  • Foot mats

The base Insignia SportsTourer model comes with a choice of several engine configurations, powered by both diesel and gasoline. The most powerful unit is the 2.0-liter turbo that develops 220 horsepower and helps the car accelerate from a standstill to 100 km/h in no less than 7.9 seconds. The maximum speed is rated at 236 km/h (146.6 mph).
