Opel will be showing off the revamped Insignia Grand Sport at the Geneva motor show next March, and we can’t wait to get a closer look at it; from what we can tell from the latest images, the newbie will be quite the looker.
The new model is lighter than the predecessor by as much as 175kg (even though it is bigger than the outgoing car) and it features an elegant body with class-leading aerodynamics, a new all-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring, an eight-speed automatic transmission and some of the new technologies include the next-gen IntelliLux Matrix LED headlights. It should have even more room in the cabin too what with a wheelbase that has been stretched by 92mm while the track has increased by 11mm and the roof has been lowered by 29mm. This gives the Insignia Grand Sport a sleek and muscular stance. The drag coefficient stands at 0.26 thanks to aero tweaks to boost efficiency.
Some of the tech includes heated front and rear seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Head-up Display while on the safety front it’ll get a rear cross traffic alert system, lane departure warning in addition to adaptive cruise control.
There’s no official word on what engines will be available (the previous Insignia OPC had a twin-turbocharged 2.8-litre V6 good for 325 horsepower) but there will likely be a wide range of turbocharged units.
