2017 Opel Insignia 4×4 Review – Video
The all-new Opel Insignia is in extremely good shape. It has the sporty elegance of a large coupé, its completely new architecture makes it uncompromisingly spacious and truly fun to drive, and it offers exemplary safety and comfort features just as a true flagship should. Not only does the second generation Insignia impress with its breathtaking lines on the outside and its great wellness atmosphere on the inside, it also provides the widest range of intelligent technologies reaching from the trendsetting Opel IntelliLux LED® matrix headlights and the very sophisticated all-wheel drive system with torque vectoring to ultra-modern driver assistance systems and the refined head up display. The active aluminum hood for improved pedestrian protection rounds off the significant increase in safety. In addition, the Insignia comes with Opel-typical first-class connectivity with smartphone integration, which now offers a new Opel OnStar feature – the Personal Assistant. It allows Insignia occupants to book hotel rooms and search for suitable parking spots via an OnStar Advisor – indeed a real person and not a computer. Overall, the new Insignia impresses with great agility, increased roominess and outstanding value for money making it a serious challenger even for premium brands.
The new flagship is also the first Opel available with intelligent all-wheel drive with torque vectoring, an eight-speed automatic transmission and a 360°camera. Together with efficient new generation turbo engines, weight reduction of up to 200 kilograms (depending on the variant) and a lower seating position, the new Opel Insignia Grand Sport and Sports Tourer are more agile than ever before and give the driver a direct and rewarding driving experience.
