Rüsselsheim.  The innovative Opel front camera has won the “Car Connectivity Award 2019”. The system, which is offered in the Opel Insignia flagship and the bestselling Astra compact, was voted into first place in the “price-performance stars” category by the readers of authoritative German car magazine, auto motor und sport and the podcast Moove. The German brand’s front camera has already won many awards in previous generations and is standard equipment on several model variants. It is the key component of numerous driver assistance systems such as Forward Collision Warning and Lane Keep Assist.

“Opel has always made innovative technology available to a wide customer base”, said Vice President Communications, Harald Hamprecht, at the prize-giving for the “Car Connectivity Award” in Stuttgart. “The popular front camera is a good example. We want to offer our customers cars that are advanced as well as safe and comfortable. The readers want the same, which is why we are particularly pleased to win this award.”

This year was the sixth time that readers of auto motor und sport and Moove have elected the winners of the “Car Connectivity Award“. They could choose from cars and technologies in 11 categories, from “telephone integration” and “price-performance stars” to “connected e-cars”. More than 12,000 readers and users took part in this year’s election.
