Opel Insignia Sports Tourer ecoFLEX Details

Opel's ecoFLEX technology will be featured on the Insignia Sports Tourer as well, starting this fall, promising reduced fuel consumption ratings for the wagon version of the 2009 European Car of the Year. The new model is already available for order, at prices starting from 28,690 euro (Germany price) and will begin deliveries starting autumn.

The Opel Insignia Sports Tourer ecoFLEX comes equipped with the 2.0 CDTI engine with the Clean Tech System, which develops 160 hp and 380 Nm of torque. The vehicle can accelerate from naught to sixty in 9.9 seconds and top at a speed of 215 km/h. The engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission boasting a longer final drive ratio.

Being an ecoFLEX, however, means that its main attributes are the consumption and emission ratings. The Insignia ecoFLEX has a fuel consumption rating of 5.3l/100 km in combined cycle (44.3 mpg) and emits 139g of CO2 every kilometer. For the sake of comparison the sedan version with ecoFLEX eats up 5.2 l/100 km (45.2 mpg) and emits 136 g CO2/km.

The Insignia ecoFLEX is more than just a green car. It offers the same package of high driving performance, innovative technologies and comfort as the other Insignia models. And for this price, it has no serious competition  – this is true for both the Sports Tourer and the sedans,” Hans
Demant, Opel managing director said in a release.

The Sports Tourer ecoFLEX comes with other minor enhancements as well. It features a range of aerodynamic optimizations and specially developed, 225/55 R 17-inch low-resistance Michelin tires.
