Opel Insignia facelift officially revealed

The first images of the facelifted Opel Insignia have been officially revealed ahead of its world premiere at September�??s Frankfurt motor show.

The images revealing the Opel Insignia sedan and wagon show a sleeker front end with slimmer headlights and LED running lights, a revised grille and completely new foglights and lower air intakes in a redesigned front bumper.

The rear�??s refreshed look includes new L-shaped LED tail-lights that push into the sedan�??s boot lid, a lower-positioned chrome strip that extends into the tail-lights and houses repositioned reverse lights and a smaller rear spoiler-mounted brake light.

A smoother rear bumper with a new treatment between the two exhaust tips adds to the appearance of width on the sedan, as does a more open number plate surround.

The Insignia wagon�??s rear end is also noticeably more modern with updated tail-lights and an extended chrome strip that both mirror the styling of the sedan.

More swooping lines around the number plate also help sharpen up the look of the tailgate.

In European markets the new Opel Insignia will enjoy an expanded engine line-up beyond its current turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol and 2.0-litre turbo-diesel units, with the same direct injection 1.6-litre SIDI Turbo recently announced for the Opel Astra GTC Sport joining a larger 2.0-litre version. Overseas, the 2.0-litre SIDI Turbo is also available matched to four-wheel drive.

Inside, new leather and cloth trims join upgraded dashboard materials along with a completely re-designed centre console and instrument cluster.

An all-new infotainment system featuring an eight-inch touchscreen, 3D navigation and voice control and Bluetooth-operated internet connectivity has also been added, as has adaptive cruise control, park assist, blind spot alert and forward collision alert.

While Opel Australia is yet to announce local specifications and details for the facelifted Insignia, given its debut in Frankfurt on September 12, expect the car to reach our shores in early 2014.
