New details are starting to emerge about the 2017 Opel Insignia scheduled to come out in the second half of next year. According to Auto Bild, the new mid-size sedan is going to be bigger than the outgoing model as the report specifies will be stretched by 15 cm and 9 cm of that will be in the wheelbase. The design of the car is also set for a major overhaul and it is believed the new model will look considerably sleeker with a Monza-inspired front end, a sloping roofline and a long rear overhang. This will create the illusion of a four-door coupe for the sedan and it will be followed by a wagon that will have a much bigger trunk than the current model.
Power of the 2017 Opel Insignia will allegedly come from a new family of 3- and 4-cylinder turbocharged engines, starting off with a 1.0-liter. There’s also going to be a bi-turbodiesel unit with 160 hp, a standard front-wheel drive layout and an optional AWD setup. The Insignia OPC is said to return with a six-cylinder turbo engine that will have somewhere in the region of 400 hp.
Chances are the standard Insignia will be unveiled in October 2016 at the Paris Motor Show.
