    New Opel Insignia Will Reportedly Debut In Paris

    New Opel Insignia Will Reportedly Debut In Paris

    Opel will apparently finish up the development of their new generation Insignia by fall, as the vehicle is expected to debut at the 2016 Paris Auto Show in October, prior to its 2017 market launch.

    Styling will mix elements from Opel's current range, including the Astra K, and their Monza Concept, though, the new Insignia won't become a four-door coupe, as Largus reports.

    It will be underpinned by GM's new E2xx platform (name not confirmed yet), with the new Insignia sporting a 100mm longer wheelbase.

    AWD and 300+ HP would be great. Of course, 3.0L TT with 400 HP would be absolutely awesome, but not gonna happen.

    Did the Lacrosse get bigger with its redo, and by how much? Will the Regal grow the same, keeping it the same distance from the Lacrosse? Just curious how close these two cars are.

    What about the Verano, does the US get a new one? The Chinese version?

    Think that's the rumor, though.

    Am I being pessimistic in wondering if another Insignia OPC variant will happen? High-performance family sedans have been in decline in Europe just as in the US. Whereas Opel, Ford, Mazda, and VW have offered some such at some point in the 2000s, the 2010s has so far been reduced to simply an Opel. Of course in the US there's basically nothing aside from the upcoming Fusion Sport, although a person might point to "alternatives" like the Charger. Of course maybe Ford will sell a Mondeo ST variant that's basically their Fusion Sport and offer some kind of competition.
