Opel Insignia middle class on the way up

Opel Insignia middle class on the way upUpon my soul! This is a clear announcement! “We also want to challenge the premium vehicles with the Insignia Grand Sport,” says Opel marketing man Albrecht Schäfer with proudly swollen breast. As if the struggle with the VW Passat, the Skoda Superb or the Ford Mondeo for market shares in the mid-class segment would not be difficult enough, the Rüsselsheimer Autobauer with the second generation of the Insignia now also the German Platzhirschen Audi A4, Mercedes C- Class and, above all, the BMW 3 Series. Ambitious goals, but are they realistic?

The engine: Well, we really did not notice anything. Which is also quite good. The engine with 165 hp and 250 Nm could be the favorite of the customers, according to Opel, because it has good driving (0-100 km / h in 8.9 seconds, 222 km / h top speed) with low consumption (5.7 L / 100 Km). Between 2000 and 4000 revolutions, the 1.5-liter unit can lead to a temperament breakout, but may rather jam around in the big passage, then he does not grow so.

But in turn, we remain at first with the design. It has been influenced by the Monza Concept introduced in 2013 with the almost 4.90 meters long sedan and the Kombi (4.98 meters). The new Insignia, as chief designer Stefan Arndt reported, should be as athletic and elegant as the much-watched study of the year 2013. This has succeeded the designers, in particular the Sports Tourer shows with its lines much similarity with the Monza Concept.
