New Additions: Opel Expands Powertrain Portfolio for Insignia
- On sale now: new diesel and petrol drivetrain combinations
- Euro 6d across the board: strict emissions standard met
- Optimal: new Insignia among most fuel-efficient cars in its segment
Rüsselsheim. Opel is adding a new petrol engine to the powertrain portfolio of the new Insignia Grand Sport limousine and the Insignia Sports Tourer estate. The new power unit produces 125kW (170hp) and already develops maximum torque of 350 Newton metres at only 1,500rpm (Grand Sport fuel consumption in the NEDC1 cycle: combined 6.0-6.4l/100km, 150-145g/km CO2). Opel offers the four-cylinder engine in combination with a smooth-shifting nine-speed automatic transmission. In this configuration, the Opel flagship accelerates from zero to 100km/h in only 8.7 seconds. The maximum speed is 228km/h. The new Opel Insignia 2.0 Turbo is already available in Elegance trim at a starting price of €38,919 (all prices RRP including VAT in Germany).
Also new is the combination of 2.0 diesel, eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. With 128kW (174hp) and 380Nm of torque, the Insignia 2.0 Diesel offers a calm, confident performance (Grand Sport fuel consumption in the NEDC1 cycle: combined 5.1l/100km, 135g/km CO2). The high-tech all-wheel drive system with torque vectoring transfers optimum power to the road surface in all conditions. The maximum speed is 223km/h and the Insignia takes only 8.9s to sprint from zero to 100km/h. The Insignia 2.0D with AWD is available from €41,531.
“The new Insignia has been in production at our Rüsselsheim plant since September”, says Andreas Marx, Head of Opel Germany. “We are especially proud of our flagship and its dynamic yet elegant design. With the two new additions to our powertrain portfolio, every customer can choose the ideal Insignia for their very own needs.”
Opel offers the new Insignia as the especially sporty GSi (169kW/230hp, Grand Sport NEDC1 fuel consumption: combined 7.0l/100km, 159g/km CO2), Grand Sport and Sports Tourer with newly developed, extra-efficient petrol and diesel engines that all meet the strict Euro 6d emissions standard. In addition, new low-friction gearboxes further reduce fuel consumption and at the same time increase comfort. An active full-face shutter further improves the new Insignia’s aerodynamics. Compared to its predecessor, NEDC fuel consumption is up to 18 per cent lower, while CO2 emissions are as low as around 99g/km. The new Insignia is therefore one of the most fuel-efficient cars in its segment.
 The preliminary fuel consumption and CO2-emission data given have been determined according to WLTP test procedure methodology, and the relevant values are translated back into NEDC to allow the comparability with other vehicles, according to regulations R (EC) No. 715/2007, R (EU) No. 2017/1153 and R (EU) No. 2017/1151.
