That Was Quick: Opel’s Working On An Updated Insignia Sports Tourer For 2020

Opel is planning to launch eight new or updated models by 2020 and it appears the Insignia and Insignia Sports Tourer will be among them.

Recently snapped by spy photographers, the 2020 Insignia Sports Tourer has a new front fascia which is hidden behind heavy camouflage. While details are hard to make out, it appears the model will have a grille that mimics the one used on the Astra.

Besides the updated grille, the prototype has been equipped with new headlights which have a protruding element near the outside edges. The wagon also has a new front bumper, but the camouflage effectively hides the design. That being said, the bumper could have revised air intakes and updated fog lights.

The rest of the design largely carries over, but the prototype has revised taillights with a more three dimensional appearance. The production model could also feature additional changes including a new rear bumper and restyled wheels.

The pictures only reveal a few glimpses of the interior and the photos suggest there won’t be any major changes inside. That’s not too surprising as the Insignia was introduced less than two years ago and the model received an updated infotainment system for 2019.

Little else is known about the car at this point, but the company has said they are committed to “further improving its combustion engines.” Speculation has suggested the updated Insignia could receive some new or updated engines, possibly sourced from their new owners at PSA. Of course, that remains unconfirmed at the moment and initial indications suggest the Insignia will only be receiving minor updates.
