Quantum of Elegance

days

Thanks to the refreshed design, the top-of-the-line-model has an even more powerful on-the-road presence. The new edition of the German brand’s flagship will premiere at the Brussels Motor Show on January 10, 2020. Here, the Grand Sport limousine and Sports Tourer estate present themselves for ten days – packed with advanced technologies.



LED elements

A highlight: The pioneering LED technology in the new Insignia. Instead of the previous 32 LED elements, the new adaptive IntelliLux LED Pixel Light features an industry-leading total of 168 highly energy-efficient LED headlamps – with this, the Opel flagship is unique in its market segment. Driving at night is therefore more relaxed and safer.


slats

 

Thanks to the air inlets with integrated fog lamps and the new chrome-edged radiator grille, the new Insignia appears lower and wider and it has an even more powerful on-the-road presence. The grill is prominently decorated with 38 protruding slats. The Opel logo in the middle of the chrome bar seems larger. The chrome bar itself stretches right and left to the LED daylight running lamps, which are now located at the bottom instead of the top of each headlamp.

Typically for a flagship, the Opel Insignia will feature a full range of assistance and infotainment systems. A new digital rear view camera improves rearward vision. Safety when reversing out of parking spaces can be further increased by the optional rear cross traffic alert. The system uses radar sensors to detect objects 90 degrees to the left and right behind the Insignia, at distances of up to 20 metres. The driver is warned via the display and acoustic signals.



million units

On its introduction in 2009, the first Insignia generation was elected “European Car Of The Year”. During the last ten years, almost 1.2 million units of both Insignia generations have rolled off the assembly line in Opel’s hometown of Rüsselsheim. With the comprehensive package of lighting, assistance, safety and comfort systems, as well as a completely new range of drives with extra-efficient petrol and diesel engines, the new Insignia is ideally equipped to continue its success.
