Opel Insignia Sport Tourer CrossFour revealed?

January 2, 2012

Some intriguing images of the upcoming Opel Insignia Sport Tourer CrossFour wagon have surfaced online. It’s unknown if the images are official or simply a pair of accurate renderings.

The Opel Insignia, which will eventually make its way to Australia, is a good-looking medium-sized premium sedan. The CrossFour will be a jumped up wagon version, featuring a two-tone colour scheme and a smattering of crossover-esque trimmings and scuff plates.

According to reports, the Opel Insignia Sport Tourer CrossFour will feature an all-wheel drive system with a lockable rear differential for when the going gets rough, and a FlexRide adaptive stability control system.

Underneath, the CrossFour will come in three different engine flavours, including a 2.0-liter CDTi turbo-diesel four cylinder with 118kW, and a more powerful sports version using a 2.0-litre BiTurbo diesel offering 143kW.

It looks like it could be a great package to rival the likes of the Subaru Outback and Audi Allroad, with a rather attractive face. We’re not sure about the off-road performance potential though, as it appears to be quite a low and sporty proposition, at least in these images.
