Sleek: Clearly arranged cockpit with new infotainment generation
The spotlight was on three criteria during the enhancement of the cockpit: clear, simple and thus intuitive operation, customization of the infotainment offer, and of course comfort and safety for driver and passengers, which is increased even more thanks to lowest-possible distraction from road traffic.
Intensifying the human-and-machine connection is the newly designed HMI (Human Machine Interface) instrument panel with an up to 8-inch high-resolution color display. In addition to the classic readouts like speed, rpm and fuel tank level, further information on navigation, smartphone use and audio options are directly in the driver’s line of sight and can be adjusted.

The touchpad is ergonomically integrated in the center console and offers a completely new way of quickly and intuitively accessing the infotainment system. Its illuminated, touch-sensitive surface reacts immediately to finger movements including haptic feedback and makes operation of the new infotainment generation child’s play without distracting the driver from the traffic situation. Even individual letters – for instance when searching for a song title in the database or a city in the navigation system – can be entered by fingertip on the touchpad.

Additionally, Opel Insignia driver can control the newest generation infotainment system over newly designed, clearly laid-out steering wheel controls as well as voice commands. The advanced voice recognition function can be activated by the simple push of a button on the steering wheel controls and can also process more than one command at a time. The wide range of operating choices is the result of enhancements to the new infotainment generation.

The new Opel Insignia also makes a statement in terms of powertrain and chassis. While the mid-size model already received many accolades for driving comfort, handling and roadholding, the new edition plays in a higher league. Opel engineers made a host of improvements to the chassis including to the dampers, stabilizers and steering, resulting in decreased noise and vibrational behavior and even higher comfort.
The broad, newly expanded engine portfolio is tuned to performance and comfort without any compromises. The new Opel Insignia offers the choice between the three propulsion alternatives gasoline, diesel and LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas); power output ranges from 81 kW/110 hp to 239 kW/325 hp.
The new Opel Insignia 2.0 CDTI is the eco and fuel-saving champion. Thanks to its new 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine, the 88 kW/120 hp and 103 kW/140 hp variants emit just 99 g/km CO2 (Sports Tourer: 104 g/km CO2) according to EG Nr. 715/2007. This puts it in the A+ efficiency class, as the four and five-door models with six-speed manual transmission and Start/Stop system consume just 3.7 liters of fuel per 100 km in the combined cycle (Sports Tourer: 3.9 l/100 km) – optimum values in this vehicle class. Both variants also boast superb torque, with the 88 kW/120 hp Turbo diesel providing up to 320 Nm and the 103 kW/140 hp model even up to 370 Nm – thanks to an automatic overboost function.

The most prominent gasoline engines are the two turbo direct injection units: the 2.0 SIDI Turbo with 184 kW/250 hp and 400 Nm maximum torque as well as the 1.6 SIDI Turbo from the newest engine generation with 125 kW/170 hp and 260 Nm, and even up to 280 Nm with overboost (SIDI = Spark Ignition Direct Injection). Both boast superb power development and excellent running smoothness with high fuel economy. They can be coupled with a six-speed manual transmission and Start/Stop functionality or with a new, low-friction six-speed automatic gearbox. In addition to front-wheel-drive, the 2.0-liter SIDI Turbo is also available with all-wheel-drive.

The new Insignia evolves the multi-award-winning Opel design philosophy “sculptural artistry meets German precision” in the mid-size segment. The design theme articulates premium aspiration and dynamics with an unmistakable low-and-wide front graphic to visually pronounce its wide stance. The high-gloss chrome grille is wider and lower than before. The brand bar that cradles the Opel logo is leaner and includes winglets that link the eye to the re-designed headlamps. Depending on trim version, these come with bi-xenon lamps including the safety lighting system AFL+. All headlamps are executed in high gloss black with embedded chrome accents that enhance the technology within. The up-level headlamps include a wing signature daytime running light featuring energy-saving LEDs.
The lower front fascia inserts are
designed to appear slim and wide, in order to emphasize the upper grille
size. Fog lamps are combined with wide black inserts and chrome
accents. These grow from thin to thick as they near the wheelhouse to
pronounce the width of the front design and the Opel Insignia’s
