Opel Now Offering HiPerStrut Suspension on FWD Insignia

One of the main features of the Vauxhall / Opel Insignia VXR / OPC version was the trick HiPerStrut suspension which reduced understeer and improved the overall handling characteristics - similarly to what Ford’s Revo Knuckle (which we explained in great detail) does.

The system used to be fitted to the OPC as standard, while also being offered on the all-wheel drive BiTurbo diesel model as an optional extra. Now, however, the manufacturer has just announced that it is now offering the system on some front-wheel drive Insignia models - not clear yet which ones will get it, probably the higher-powered ones.

Not all models will get the upgraded suspension, but the 160 hp 2.0-liter CDTi model will surely benefit from it. Price-wise, it should cost the same as it does now, €1,900 (£1,500 / $2,350), which includes Brembo brakes and 20-inch rims, and it should really do wonders for the Insignia’s already very competent and secure handling characteristics.
