The Opel Insignia will compete in the fiercely competitive segment D along with the new Ford Mondeo, Mazda 6, Renault Laguna and VW Passat. The new Insignia is the successor to the Opel Vectra and was first seen the GTC concept at the Geneva Motor Show 2007.

As already mentioned, there are no official figures, but we can risk a guess, the engines will be available. Starting with 1.6 and 2.0-litre turbo 250 PS and 2.8-litre V6 petrol engines, a 1.9-litre diesel and 1.9-litre turbo-diesel (power ranges from 120 to 180 hp). A 2.9-litre V6 diesel is expected to follow later, during an OPC version by the end of May with 300 hp.
