Report: Next-generation Opel Insignia to share platform with Cadillac XTS replacement

Opel/Vauxhall’s next-generation Insignia will share underpinnings with the Cadillac XTS replacement rather than the next-gen Peugeot 508 and Citroen C5.

According to a report from Autocar, Opel interim CEO Thomas Sedran revealed that the next Insignia will be twinned with a Cadillac.
“We will draw on developments from within the parent company for the Insignia replacement. This provides us with the advantage of being able to use technology from GM that is also earmarked for Cadillac,” Sedran said.

This means the Cadillac XTS replacement will be the Insignia’s sister model when the two models will be launched toward the end of the decade. Until then, the current Insignia will get a facelift this summer. General Motors Europe and PSA Peugeot Citroen revealed last week that they would be co-developing MPVs, but no one mentioned anything about large sedans. Neither the Opel/Vauxhall Corsa, nor the Antara aren’t included in the GM-PSA tie-up.

The next-generation Corsa will be premiered at the Frankfurt auto show in September, with the market launch scheduled for April 2014. The new Antara SUV will arrive in spring 2015 and will be based on GM’s Delta II platform also used by Astra.
