These aspects are in the final stages of trail for incorporation in the latest version of Insignia.

Similarly, easy to change items like bumper, both in the front and the rear have been newly designed for use. Though the headlamps have been left untouched the tail lamps have redesigned to look different from the existing models.
One difference that may be of significance is the air intake system that has been newly designed. The interior has been given some attention with the use of LED lamps. An indo screen of larger size with buttons at the top of the screen is provided in the new version. They are larger in size than those installed in the current Insignia. The dash board gets a lot of chrome on it giving it a better and exclusive look. The outlets of air have also been redesigned. They also get strips of chrome around them making them shiny to look at.
The interior uses better quality materials and touch controls. The Opel insignia 2013 comes both in petrol and diesel model. Though the HP of the engine is being upgraded to 321HP the normal power is expected to range between 130 to 260HP. These are engines that are being used at present and will be used till the higher rated engines become operational. Ensuring fuel efficiency has been one of the guiding principles in updating technology and it is expected to be reflected in the V6 engines being developed. Though a few cars are expected to reach the showrooms by September2012, the full complement will be out only by the end of this year.
