SPORTIVE PLEASURES ON THE OPEL INSIGNIA
Opel’s new generation flagship now returns to the roads with a more sportive design after getting rid of its sedan bodywork. It has a completely different design from the first gen Insignia which made 900 thousand totals sales across Europe and was selected as the automobile of the year in Europe in 2009. A more spacious interior was provided by lengthening its wheelbase by 92 mm. Especially the passengers sitting at the back will feel this difference. Lengthening the wheelbase also allowed the designers to shape the new Insignia Grand Sport in a more athletic and stunning way: The new Insignia Grand Sport is longer, closer to the ground and has the flexible lines of a coupe along with the courageous stance of high-class automobiles. With its new design, it will make everyone feel that it is the Opel’s flagship wherever it goes. The new Insignia Grand Sport’s driving is as dynamic as its look. The new model will come with last generation turbo engines and transmissions when it is presented to the markets in 2017. Some of the prominent features of the new model would be its reduced friction and its efficient 8 forward new automatic transmission. It will also have a 4×4-traction system available.
