Opel Insignia Gets AGR Approved Ventilated Seats

The successful Insignia model will get an extra touch of luxury and comfort this summer, as the German manufacturer decided to fit the model with a ventilated seat which carries the Action for Healthy Backs (AGR-Aktion Gesunder Rücken) approval.

The seat, which comes as an option for EUR390, features a back-friendly base structure that can be adjusted individually to the natural curvature of the spine by the electropneumatically-controlled 4-way lumbar support integrated in the seat back.

The AGR seat has adjustment travel distances of 270 millimeters forwards/backwards and 65 millimeters up/down and comes with independent tilt adjustment of the seat cushion and back as well. Driver and front passenger seats are equipped with active head restraints that are height- and tilt-adjustable to prevent the effects of whiplash.

The ventilation feature in the seat is part of the premium package - premium driver’s seat with AGR seal of approval and perforated leather trim in black or beige. It costs EUR2,100 for the Sport and Innovation equipment versions.

Opel debuted AGR approved seats on the 2011 Opel Meriva. In that case, the AGR gave its seal of approval for Meriva’s FlexSpace rear seating system, the revolutionary FlexDoors, and the ergonomic sports seats.

“With 70 percent of the German population suffering from back pain, the AGR approval confirms how much we at Opel engineering care for people who want –or need – to do something good for their back,” Andrew Leuchtmann, senior manager of global seats at Opel said when the Meriva was launched.

So, here you have it: those 70 percent of Germans suffering from back pains can now enjoy some R&R in the Insignia as well.
