Opel Insignia caught spies on the Nurburgring trackSeptember 2, 2019
At the Nurburgring, several prototypes of the new Opel models were spotted. The most interesting was the “charged” wagon.
In 2019, when the German company finally introduced a restyled Astra model, it was possible to find out other information. Opel worked on introducing Peugeot motors into its cars. This also applies to the Insignia II model, which will be updated next year.
Thanks to spy shots and videos, we were able to better examine each of their test prototypes. Among the Insignia instances, the station wagon with the GSi (Grand Sport Injection) badge was noticed – this is how Opel denoted its “charged” versions.
It was possible to discern the red GSI brake calipers, huge wheels and a small exhaust hole under the rear bumper. The car is very similar to the Kia Proceed GT in engine sound and body design. A sports station wagon should be in good demand, because the younger generation is starting to get bored of moving on SUVs.
Based on the Opel Insignia OPC and V6 models, Vectra OPC is created. Under his hood, perhaps, there will be a 1.6-liter engine developing 225 horsepower, or a 180 horsepower diesel – these are the best Peugeot power plants.
However, Opel did not focus on engine power. They worked for customers and tried to meet local environmental standards. The main reason for their modifications is to reduce the amount of harmful substances, to ensure low costs and fuel efficiency.
