Opel announced the launch of an Insignia version based on the regular 1.4-liter turbo but running on LPG fuel. This is aimed at the people who want to save at the pump, as liquified petroleum gas is cheaper to buy.
The ecoFLEX model offers 140 horsepower and consumes 7.6 liters of fuel on average, translating into CO2 emissions of 124 grams per kilometer.

The LPG ecoFLEX version is available on all three body styles - sedan, notchback and wagon, with prices starting at €28,150 in Germany including VAT.

The LPG tank has been integrated into the spare wheel housing, ensuring none of the trunk space has been compromised. The gasoline tank can still be filled giving you extra range. In addition, Opel did extensive testing on the car, and it’s perfectly safe in case of a crash.

The driver can easily alternate between the LPG and gasoline propulsion mode with a switch in the instrument panel. An LED display is illuminated when the car operates with LPG.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
