The next generation Insignia VXR, is going to get improved hardware and latest technology.
The next generation Insignia VXR by Vauxhall is going to get much better than the previous models in the next edition. The sports saloon will be featuring the Ford Focus RS Technology that is supposed to improve its torque and agility to the maximum level.
The specifications that are the main part of vehicle are not shared yet by the company. The details won’t be revealed till 2017 until the car is properly launched which is several months away.
However GKN which is making a vehicle focuses on using Ford RS’s technology is about to develop a Twinster module that will use a back axle. This might be the indication to the fact that Vauxhall is also focusing on all-wheel-drive while focusing on the current technology.
According to AutoCar, the rumors suggest that GKN’s Twinster will be used in VXR which will use torque vectoring at the rear. The front wheel drive focuses on conventional electric differential lock which is already being used so a new module will surely lead on to a new modulation.
The GKN prototype which was tested earlier in labs and Aldenhoven test center in Germany showed many new components of rear wheel drive. The Twinster clearly supports easier handling and improved throttle while the car is being pulled on the track.
The system also improved the yaw angle which shows a mid-corner acceleration, however the lack of front drive will mean that the car will be pushed for understeering due to low back up from front.
The new Insignia VXR is going to be lighter than the older model. It is 200kgs lighter than the previous 1825kg model. This also suggests that chances of understeering might be lessened.
