Frankfurt Motor Show LIVE: Opel Insignia image

After it was revealed back in June, the facelifted Opel Insignia has debuted officially in front of the audience attending the 2013 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show.

Looking slightly more refined, the refreshed Insignia gets new front and rear fascias encompassing updated headlamps, revised front bumper with slightly bigger and lower air intakes, along with different rear light clusters and a new rear bumper extending further down.

Following complains about the clutter on the center console, the revised Insignia features less buttons there, a new steering wheel and better materials. In addition, customers will be able to configure their 2013 Insignia with an 8-inch touchscreen display.

Two new turbo gasoline direct injection engines expand the portfolio alongside the 99 g Turbo diesel. This emission puts the new 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine in the A+ efficiency class, as both variants – 120/140 hp – have, with six-speed manual transmission and Start/Stop system, a fuel efficiency of just 3.7 liters of fuel per 100 km in the combined cycle (3.9 for the Sports Tourer).

The two new gasoline engines in the SIDI family offer 170 hp from 1.6 liter and 250 hp from 2.0-liter, with peak torque at 380 Nm for the first and 400 Nm for the second.
