Opel Insignia facelift might get new 1.6L diesel engine

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. The new 1.6 liter turbo diesel unit will fill the gap between the 1.3 CDTI and the 2.0 CDTI.

Opel has apparently developed the 1.6 liter turbo diesel engine has been built from scratch and it’s promising future Insignia owners, which will get it under the hood of the facelifted version, more power and less noise, along with the “classic” improvements like the lower fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions. The facelifted version of the Opel Insignia is expected to bring redesigned front and rear fascias, with modified bumpers, headlamps and taillights, along with a few refreshed elements. The 2014 Opel Insignia will be presented at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
