Opel’s turnaround plan is supposed to take at least six months, and besides the obvious plant closures and employee layoff that are angering so many, some relatively good model improvements are also on the table.
One of the old Opel models to get a facelift soon is the Insignia. Yes, the changes are strictly limited to the plastic bits, as no sheetmetal has been changed. But the grille, bumpers and lights have received enough of a makeover to give a more premium, brand differentiated feel.
The biggest change will be at the rear, where Opel is working on a redesign taillight design, which we have yet to see since the test car uses mule assemblies that look nothing like the production fittings.
With the bi-turbo diesel recently unveiled for this car in particular, there’s no shortage of engines, but you can expect further improvements in the Eco range, lowering CO2 output in order to make this a better company car.
