Opel Insignia’s New Infotainment System Revealed, Will Launch Later This Year

Almost two years after the introduction of the second-gen Opel and Vauxhall Insignia at the end of 2016, the mid-size model is getting a new infotainment system with plenty of features.

Set to debut on the 2019 Opel Insignia later this year, it will be offered in two versions called Multimedia and Multimedia Navi Pro. In its range-topping form, the system has an 8-inch touchscreen display, joined by a digital instrument cluster and available head-up display in the more expensive option.

Said to be “stylish and intuitive to use”, the infotainment system provides access to smartphone integration, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, AM/FM radio, Bluetooth, USB, navigation and optional DAB+, along other features.

Users can pair up to two smartphones simultaneously, and enjoy points of interest and destination such as Live Traffic, real-time fuel prices, parking information, and others. The system can be controlled via the touchscreen, buttons on the steering wheel or, in the case of the Multimedia Navi Pro, voice control.

Opel’s developers have paid extra care to customization, as the infotainment system allows up to five drivers to define their own profiles. Thus, they can save their favorite destinations, points of interest, playlists, equalization for the sound system and climate control settings.

The first models in the company’s lineup to benefit from the new infotainment system will be the Insignia Grand Sport, Sports Tourer, Country Tourer and GSi. Subsequently, other vehicles will adopt it, later this year and in 2019.
