Opel Insignia facelift coming soon image

Being introduced in 2008 in the large family car segment as a replacement for the Vectra, being a cheaper choice than VW Passat and a better one than the Ford Focus, the Insignia from Opel will get a facelift on the upcoming 2012 model.

The “new” Insignia will have a redesigned front fascia, as you can see in the picture, with front bumper lights which now form a vertical column under the headlights. Even though it isn’t very different from the generation currently cruising the streets, we can’t ignore a slight resemble with the recent Ampera and Zafira models.

Even though details about future engine modifications aren’t officially known we expect the 2012 Insignia to get the same Euro 5 engines, the petrol-running, 1.6 liters and 115 horsepower, 1.8 liters and 140 HP, 1.6 liters and 180 HP and the top of the line 2.8 liters V6 which is developing 260 HP and the turbo-diesels like the 2.0 liters with 110 and 160 HP and a 2.0 liters 190 HP.

Prices for the current generation of the Insignia start at around 19.000 euros.
