The German mid-size novelty should get the engines of the French concern Groupe PSA.

The next few years will be very important for Opel. The German brand, which is currently part of the French Groupe PSA, is on the verge of the largest transformation in its history. This process will begin with a new generation of the Corsa hatchback, which will receive the French platform, after which it will continue with an updated version of the flagship brand model, the mid-size Insignia.

These pictures captured another version of the model – we are talking about the Insignia Grand Sport.

It is noteworthy that the prototype has camouflage only in its front part. Masking does not allow us to see the car in detail, although we already have a pretty good idea of ​​what to expect.

The second-generation Insignia is likely to get a new grille to match the refined design of the rest of the Opel lineup. Headlights will get a smoother shape and new graphics. While the entry-level versions of the model will receive halogen lamps, and more expensive versions will be equipped with LED optics.

According to the latest rumors, Insignia will switch to Groupe PSA engines. Of course, all units will meet European standards for emissions of Euro 6d-TEMP – this means that gasoline engines will also receive a diesel particulate filter. It will be interesting to see if the car will also receive new engines, since the units it uses today are being developed or put into operation by the American concern General Motors.
