    Both are the OPC Line trim and are absolutely gorgeous.


    Concepts are usually a sign of things to come, but unfortunately in many cases a production car doesn’t look nearly as exciting as the concept before it. That’s not the situation with the all-new Opel Insignia Grand Sport sedan as it has remained very faithful to the 2013 Monza concept. Seen here is a completely undisguised version of the OPC Line trim featuring a sleek body with a significantly sharper design compared to the aging Insignia.

    It’s actually the more appealing OPC Line version bringing a sportier exterior and a lowered suspension setup as well a set of Brembo brakes lurking behind 20-inch alloy wheels. Also noticeable are the dual exhaust tips and a discreet spoiler lip mounted on the trunk. Going against the trend, Opel has not integrated the turn signals into the side mirror caps, deciding to do it the old fashioned way by installing them on the front fenders.

    Based on what we have seen with the new Astra, there seems to be a reluctance to keep the OPC line alive on Opel's part

    Hot damn! Every time I think I've decided what new car I want to treat myself to, since I have a big-boy job now, a new one gets released and I change my mind. This car is gorgeous!

    I really like the current Regal but this thing pushes it down into the dirt and drives away. I'm hoping we have a nice array of competent engines.

    Doesn't do it for me! I hate that flattened fish Malibu look! I'll have to wait until I see it in person.

    Very nice though I'd liked the Monza concept MUCH better.

    It looks like a Malibu in some ways like you note, but without those RWD proportions, the long look is does not work well, that is why an OPC line would improve on it..

    Are these images real world or CG?

    They look really good. The new La Crosse looks way better in person than the pictures make it look so I'll go out on a limb and say it will be the same here. BTW this wagon is drop dead gorgeous if that can be said of a wagon while keeping a straight face.

    Can't see them being anything but real. Looks like someone was able to sneak pictures while GM was doing their own promotional shoot

    Yep. Let down by the sedan (looks a little generic and unfinished around the rear quarter), very pleased by the wagon.

    Real.
    I think the Wagon's styling might of been what got it approved for the US. I really wanna consider this when my lease is up in August.

    Powertrains will make it even more interesting.

    I get that feeling too, the sedan looks good but the wagon looks great.
