Opel reports it has already received 100,000 orders for the updated version of the mid-size Insignia sedan since the model went on sale last fall. In the first four months of 2014, the Insignia was the number one selling mid-size vehicle in Great Britain, Spain and the Netherlands and number two in Belgium, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Norway.
“In the few months since its presentation, 100,000 car buyers have already ordered the new Opel Insignia – this shows that our new, even more modern and elegant flagship is appealing to both the hearts and minds of our customers,” Peter Christian Küspert, Opel Board Member for Sales and General Motors Europe Vice President Sales and Aftersales, said in a statement.
Opel offers the Insignia in sporty “Sports Tourer” station wagon form as well as in the more rugged “Country Tourer” guise, in addition to the traditional sedan form. Opel says the Country Tourer is proving to be popular thanks to its go-anywhere looks and undeniable practicality. More than five percent of all Insignia customers have opted for the Country Tourer since it first went on sale late last year.
More than 600,000 total units of the Insignia have been sold since its initial launch at the end of 2008, and it has managed to earn more than 50 national and international awards over the same time period. Most recently, the Insignia was recognized at the Plus X Awards, an awards ceremony for consumer goods, by receiving three awards for its overall quality.
