OPEL gives a first glimpse of the new Insignia. The new edition of the German brand’s flagship will premiere at the Brussels Motor Show from January 10-19, 2020 and offer buyers even sharper looks as well as further improved night-time vision. Thanks to the refreshed design, the top-of-the-line-model has an even more powerful on-the-road presence.

The new Insignia is packed with advanced technologies. The Grand Sport limousine and Sports Tourer estate offer for the first time a digital rearview camera. Combined with radar-based rear cross-traffic alert, which warns of traffic approaching from the side, the system further increases safety

It will be even more efficient than before, thanks to lightweight engineering and all-new, highly efficient petrol and diesel engines.

The power of the IntelliLux LED® Pixel Light system has been significantly increased. The 84 LED elements are arranged in three rows in each ultra-slim headlamp, along with the curve light and dip beam module, as well as the characteristic, LED daylight running lamp underneath.

The front end emphasizes the car’s elegant and sporty character by proportionally making everything feel lower, wider and executed with clear German attention to detail.

The chrome-edged radiator grille is wider and features prominent slats; the Opel logo in the middle of the chrome bar seems larger. The chrome bar itself stretches right and left to the LED daylight running lamps, which are now located at the bottom instead of the top of each headlamp.

The rear of the Insignia Grand Sport and Sports Tourer is also defined by clear lines and slim, horizontal lines of the design continue in the interior. Precisely placed chrome accents underline the stylish ambience.

Typically for a flagship, the Insignia will feature a full range of assistance and infotainment systems. A new digital rearview camera improves rearward vision. Safety when reversing out of parking spaces can be further increased by the optional rear cross-traffic alert. The system uses radar sensors to detect objects 90 degrees to the left and right behind the Insignia, at distances of up to 20 metres. The driver is warned via the display and acoustic signals.

The top-of-the-line unit features numerous Connected Navigation services. With real-time traffic information, online map updates and predictive navigation, journeys are more relaxing. Ergonomically certified AGR seats are optionally available for driver and front passenger and will offer high comfort.
