2017 Opel Insignia details emerge

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.
