What the new Opel Insignia may look like

The German edition Auto Bild found out some details about the new generation Opel Insignia and, based on this information, showed what the sedan of 2024 will be like.

The current (second) generation Opel Insignia appeared in 2017, shortly before the American concern General Motors sold Opel to the French PSA Group, which later merged with FCA (Fiat Chrysler) into the Stellantis alliance. As a result, Insignia of the second iteration turned out to be the last new Opel model on the American Epsilon II platform. The next car is already being designed on the French EMP2 architecture, which will be used by Opel in conjunction with the Peugeot 508, DS 9 and Citroen C5 X.

As noted by Auto Bild, the design of the new Opel Insignia will overlap with the corporate identity that can be seen in the Astra and Mokka models. Typical elements: narrow headlights with L-shaped daytime running lights and a front cover in place of the radiator grill, the so-called Vizor. By the way, according to insiders, the Insignia III will still be available in sedan and station wagon bodies, but it is not yet known whether the “raised” version of the Country Tourer will see the light of day.

Under the hoods of the Insignia III it will be possible to find three- and four-cylinder petrol engines ranging from 130 to “over 200 hp”. Allegedly, there will be diesel versions (although taking into account the environmental requirements of the EU it is hard to believe in this), and there will definitely be a plug-in hybrid in several modifications. The return of the power plant in the top version with all-wheel drive will be about 360 hp, while the “younger” predict 225 hp.

In addition to the usual versions with internal combustion engines and hybrids, the new Opel Insignia will have an all-electric version with a range of more than 800 km in a top-end configuration. The cost of a “train” in the simplest version should not exceed 50 thousand euros. The electric car will appear before 2028 – according to Opel’s electrification plan, this is the deadline after which all models should have a battery alternative to versions with internal combustion engines.

    Although it is definitely an unfinished replica, I would be interested in contact details, anyway. Maybe this could be an interesting project.
