  • Insignia VXR boasts all-wheel drive, turbocharged performance and leading safety technology

Holden’s European invasion continues, with the launch of the German-designed and built Insignia VXR performance sedan. Packing all-wheel-drive and turbocharged performance, the Insignia marks fresh territory for Holden’s long-established performance credentials.

Following the launch of Astra and Cascada, Insignia VXR is the next instalment in Holden’s product onslaught which promises 24 new models and 36 powertrain combinations over the next five years; a third of which will be sourced from Europe.

Designed, engineered and built in Russelsheim, Germany, Insignia VXR boasts a long list of technology features including a premium infotainment system, two eight-inch digital display screens, Adaptive Forward Lighting, Side Blind Spot Alert and FlexRide Suspension.

The vehicle also welcomes three sophisticated new technologies to Holden with the introduction of Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Change Alert and Auto Emergency Braking.

The advanced technology exhibited by Insignia VXR features state-of-the-art adaptive AWD technology, an Australian made 2.8 litre turbocharged engine and FlexRide chassis control system, which combine to deliver 239kW of power and 435Nm of torque.

Holden’s Executive Directive of Sales, Peter Keley, said Insignia VXR represented the next step in Holden’s evolution with cutting edge technology and engaging performance.

“Holden is committed to leveraging GM’s global product portfolio to source the best cars for Australia and Insignia VXR is the perfect embodiment of that,” said Mr Keley.

“Insignia VXR combines engaging driving performance with a range of advanced safety features and an exciting infotainment system, blended together with world renowned European build quality.”

“Insignia VXR marks the second important chapter in Holden’s exciting new European product strategy,” said Mr Keley.

“Our new European sourced products ooze style and performance, both key attributes for Holden, and are indicative of the range of new products that will be launched in the near future.”

“With a wider and more varied product range as well as the ongoing customer support provided through our lifetime Capped Price Servicing programme, now is a great time to buy a Holden.”

Insignia VXR is on sale now and is backed by Holden’s lifetime Capped Price Service programme.
