It seems like the 2016 Paris Motor Show will be a big one for Opel and Vauxhall. According to CarScoops, the 2017 Opel-Vauxhall Insignia will bow at the show in October ahead of its 2017 model-year launch.
Opel has been busy testing the 2017 Insignia on numerous occasions, and we know the Insignia, which is very likely the 2018 Holden Commodore, has also been testing in Australia for years, too. Expect design differentiation between the Opel and Holden, however.
The Opel and Vauxhall design will be heavily influenced by what we’ve seen with the 2016 Opel Astra K hatchback, and the Opel Monza concept will continue to radiate influence in future Opel and Vauxhall product. The recently revealed Opel GT concept has also been tipped to foreshadow future design, too.
Expect the 2017 Insignia to ride on General Motors E2XX platform, where it will stretch its legs nearly 4-inches over the current car. The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu and 2017 Buick LaCrosse offer up the best look at what to expect in terms of dimensions thus far.
The report states a 1.6-liter turbo-four will be offered in various outputs, while the latest 1.6-liter whisper diesel will replace the current 2.0-liter CDTi oil burner, too.
