The German based automaker Opel is currently working on the facelifted version of the Insignia, which is expected to get new engines, along with the refreshed look.

Even if there is no official word from the automaker on this subject for the moment, the guys at autocar.co.uk are saying that the Opel Insignia facelift might get a new diesel engine. According to our source, the new unit will be one of the first downsized engines to be adopted on the company’s vehicles, and this will actually replace the current 1.7 liter CDTI engine.
