Eeporters got prototypes of the updated Opel Insignia in the back of the fastback and the Sports Tourer (wagon). Expect a formal presentation of the updated Insignia model at the end of this or the beginning of next year.

Our editors received fresh “spy” photos of the updated German car Opel Insignia in the body of the fastback and Sports Tourer (station wagon) with minimal camouflage, hiding minor changes. On the prototypes of the fastback body, there is no part of the camouflage on the front, giving us an idea of ​​the retouched false radiator grille and headlights – they have become more subtle.

It is curious that the Sports Tourer station wagon still has heavier camouflage covers both in the front and in the back – this part obviously hides updated taillights. The same applies to the fastback, although we have an idea of ​​what the new lenses will look like. Pieces of black tape hide some “secret” details of the exterior.

Perhaps the more important question is what is under the hood. Both prototypes presented here, ride on big wheels with well-visible Brembo brakes. It is assumed that before us are high-performance versions of the GSi with a 2.0-liter gasoline engine with a turbocharger rated at 260 horsepower or, possibly, a diesel engine of the same displacement, producing 210 hp.

It is worth noting that the American twin Opel – the Buick Regal sedan – offers a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, and its “charged” version of the GS gets a 3.6-liter V6 with 310 hp.

It is also rumored that Opel will decide to equip the updated Insignia with engines manufactured by the French automobile concern PSA, which includes the German company since recently.
