According to rumors, engineers of the German brand will only slightly change the exterior of the station wagon, but much greater changes may occur under its body.

Honestly, we are very surprised to see another Opel Insignia prototype tested with a lot of camouflage. Foreign photographers first saw the test prototype of the novelty in October last year, and since then nothing has changed. However, there are a number of things worth noting here.

For this test car, Opel engineers are using a front facing body cladding that probably hints at some more important changes than minor design changes.

It is reported that the updated Insignia will get the engines of the French concern PSA, because the company Opel belongs to this concern. And new engines may require modification of the engine compartment and the front of the car as a whole.

Of course, this is still not confirmed, because we have not yet figured out whether a vehicle based on the platform of the American concern GM can house the engines of a French manufacturer. Sources report that in addition to traditional internal combustion engines, the updated Insignia may also receive a plug-in hybrid version.

The back of this car is covered with a thin camouflage film, and the taillights are masked with black tape. Most likely, this means that they will get a revised internal graphics, and we would not be surprised if the Opel logo on the trunk gets a slightly modified shape, reflecting the transition of the brand “under the wing” of the French PSA.
