The Insignia Grand Sport introduces “advanced” chassis technology and an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission with “state-of-the-art” torque vectoring, reports the Daily Record, plus an all-wheel drive system offering “improved levels of grip and handling”
The Daily Record comments on the impressive handling of the new Insignia Grand Sport:
"The all-wheel drive and torque vectoring are the best way to put high power onto the road, be it wet, dry, icy or covered in snow”.
“Torque vectoring makes the car safer by controlling the distribution of torque according to changes in throttle position, steering angle and road surface, thus reducing the amount of yaw. This use of torque distribution, also known as ‘yaw damping’, results in neutral vehicle behaviour, making the car more stable and steerable for the driver.
As a result, the all-wheel drive system can apply torque to one or both of the rear wheels independently, enabling torque vectoring capability across the car’s full performance range. When cornering, higher torque is sent to the outside rear wheel, inducing rotation around the vertical axis, which allows the Insignia to turn in with more precision, responding quickly to inputs from the driver.
New Insignia drivers can choose the amount of yaw damping to suit their driving style by selecting the appropriate driving mode, ranging from high yaw damping in ‘tour’ to low in ‘sport’ mode."
