Motor Authority has caught Opel engineers out testing the powertrain for the next generation Opel Insignia.
The photos show a current generation Insignia Sports Tourer with a suspicious black bump on the hood, which MA says is an indicator they are testing a new powertrain.
The next-gen Opel Insignia, due out in 2016, is expected to ride on General Motors upcoming E2XX global vehicle architecture. E2XX will also underpin the next generation of Chevrolet Malibu. The future line of Buick and Opel models might also pull design features and styling cues from the well-received Monza concept.
