Amid the potential sale of Opel-Vauxhall to PSA Group, business must go on as usual. And, since we’re quickly approaching the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Opel has some pricing news to share regarding its flagship sedan.
The brand has announced the 2018 Opel Insignia Grand Sport will start at €25,940 ($27,592), while the Insignia Sports Tourer will arrive with a price of €26,940 ($28,656). Both prices include VAT in Germany, for inquiring minds.
Opel says the pricing reflects incredible value for the money, found in safety features like forward collision alert with pedestrian recognition, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist with automatic steering correction.
Furthermore, Opel revealed a handful of powertrain options for the 2018 Insignia. A 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine will serve as the volume engine and arrive with two different outputs, one with 140 hp and one with 165 hp. The former remains the most frugal of petrol engine choices for the Insignia Grand Sport and Sports Tourer.
Opel will also outfit range-topping Insignia Grand Sports with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine with 260 hp. The 2.0L will be paired to an eight-speed automatic and feature torque vectoring all-wheel drive.
As for diesel, the 1.6-liter CDTi turbo diesel unit returns with either 110 hp or 136 hp outputs. Though, Opel will also offer the older 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine, which it says has been refined for the all-new Insignia.
For those eager to place an order, you won’t have to wait long. Opel will open order books for the Insignia Grand Sport and Insignia Sports Tourer on February 17, 2017.
