It has been awhile since Opel released the previous Insignia model. Since the release of the first Insignia model in 2008, the series gained worldwide recognition. It seems that Opel’s attempt at replacing its Vectra and Signium models has been more than just successful, and that Insignia series has gained the trust of buyers around the world. This is the reason why Opel is preparing the new 2017 Opel Insignia model which promises to take the Insignia series to an entirely new level.
Design: Exterior and Interior
Apparently Opel’s new Insignia model will go through some pretty significant alternations. The first pictures of the model show a resemblance to the design of the Audi A7. Furthermore, the new Insignia model should be based on E2XX platform which has already been used for several other Opel vehicles.
This should result in the car being approximately 100kg lighter. Also, 2017 Opel Insignia will have a longer wheelbase and will be around 10 cm longer than the previous model. The result is lighter, more spacious and more agile vehicle capable of much better performances than its predecessor.
There are many unknowns surrounding Opel’s upcoming vehicle interior. What is for certain is that there will a lot more legroom and room for luggage as well.
Previous Insignia models have all featured the latest technologies and features, and therefore there is no reason to believe that 2017 Opel Insignia will lack any of these elements. It is certain that this car will be one of the Opel’s best models once it finds itself on the market.
2017 Opel Insignia Engine
A lot of rumors are circulating concerning the engine which will be under the hood of the upcoming Insignia model. It is likely that models for different markets will also have different engines.
The most likely candidate to be the engine of the base model is 1.4 liter turbocharged inline 4 engine with 160 horse power and 170 of torque. Engines which are also frequently talked about for models with higher trims are 1.5 liter and 2 liter engines which will have approximately 180 and 280 horse power.
Rumors say that 2017 Opel Insignia produced for the European market will also be available with diesel engines. Information about speed transmissions are scarce and rare, but it seems that Insignia should be available with both automatic and manual speed transmissions.
Opel has created a fuel efficient vehicle which is capable of delivering solid performances in relatively wide range of conditions.
Release date and Price of 2017 Opel Insignia
No official release date has been set for the 2017 Opel Insignia, however it is within reason to expect the model to be released by the end of 2016. As the times goes by more information should become available.
The price range of this vehicle should be anywhere between 27.000$ and 35.000$, but there are no official announcements regarding the upcoming Insignia’s model price.
Once on the market 2017 Opel Insignia will compete with models from such series as BMW series 3 and Jaguar XE series.
Based on the available information the new Insignia model will be a car of the future which has a lot to offer to its potential buyers.
