The ground is icy and exhaled breath is freezing. Snow as far as the eye can see. Perfect conditions to get behind the steering wheel and complete some really fast laps – in Austria’s deep-freeze. People who want to have fun on snow and ice only need one thing: the Opel Insignia Country Tourer with Twinster all-wheel drive and torque vectoring. It is the ideal match for the icy, snowy condition in Thomatal where the Opel Winter Trainings take place. The programme not only includes braking and accelerating, finding out the adhesion limits or safely mastering extreme driving conditions, it is also a lot of fun. This is made possible by Opel’s flagship model, the Insignia, with the top of the range Insignia Country Tourer, leading the way for touring in comfort. “The extremely good cornering and directional stability, even in extreme surface conditions, characterise the most modern Opel all-wheel drive system,” said Andreas Holl, Director Controls and All Wheel Drive Development at Opel.
