- Sharp pricing from $51,990*
Holden’s first all-wheel-drive (AWD) turbo-charged performance sedan will arrive in Australian dealerships next month,
marking this year's second instalment in Holden’s renewed European product introductions.
Following the launch of Astra and Cascada last month, Holden will launch the sporty Insignia VXR which boasts stunning
design, sophisticated technology and European quality all in a true mid-sized performance car.
Built in Russelsheim, Germany, the Insignia VXR features state-of-the-art AWD technology and sporty performance via a
2.8 litre V6 turbocharged engine which, when partnered with a six-speed automatic transmission, delivers 239kW of power
and an impressive 435Nm of torque.
Peter Keley, Executive Director of Sales, said Insignia VXR was an exciting and fitting addition to the Holden range.
“The Holden Insignia VXR is visually stunning with great road presence, exceptional build quality and breathtaking
performance, all at an incredibly competitive price.”
“This car is sure to make customers who are looking for a true performance mid-size sedan take a serious look at
this latest Holden.”
“It is further evidence that Holden is serious about our future product strategy. Insignia VXR is a very exciting
taste of things to come.”
The vehicle will introduce three new sophisticated technologies to Holden, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane
Change Alert and Auto Emergency Braking, which join numerous other premium features such as Adaptive Forward Lighting,
Blind Spot Alert and FlexRide Suspension.
Insignia offers three performance settings; Standard, Sport and VXR, allowing drivers to customise the vehicle’s
performance features such as responsive accelerator and gear change, sport steering, firmer sports suspension and a
greater rear bias AWD setting.
The next generation MyLink infotainment system boasts an eight-inch touch screen display and is complemented by a
premium audio system with seven high-quality speakers.

Adaptive Cruise Control
The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) uses a radar sensor to monitor the distance to the preceding traffic and to maintain
a selectable gap and the desired speed by adjusting the speed automatically with engine management and brake
The vehicle is automatically braked if necessary and restarted by using the accelerator pedal. In combination with
ACC, the integrated Forward Collision Alert (FCA) uses the radar sensor of the ACC to detect the vehicle ahead.
Auto Emergency Braking
The Holden Insignia VXR is fitted with state-of-the-art safety features including Automatic Emergency Braking
This safety feature supports the driver in mitigating the severity of some front-end crashes by automatically braking
the vehicle for an imminent collision.
AEB may help non-attentive drivers that have not yet taken corrective action, avoid or mitigate crashes with vehicles
ahead by automatically applying the brakes. This action reduces pre-impact vehicle speed and thus collision energy.
The feature works in conjunction with Forward Collision Alert and also includes Integrated Brake Assist (IBA), which
may activate when drivers begin braking quickly. IBA will assist to avoid or mitigate the severity of the collision by
automatically boosting the driver’s braking to the necessary level, based upon the speed of approach and distance to a
target ahead, up to the vehicle’s maximum braking effort.
Lane Change Alert
In terms of collisions, any vehicle approaching fast from behind can be highly dangerous especially when a driver is
pulling out to overtake or entering a stream of traffic.
Radar with a rearward range of up to 70 metres detects and warns of fast approaching vehicles in either left or right
parallel lanes with a visual signal in the respective exterior mirror.
