2020 Opel Insignia Retains GM Underpinnings, Freshens Up Its Styling

Two years after production of the second-gen Insignia started, Opel is already working on the facelifted iteration. The car has been spied testing on film for the first time, on and around the Nurburgring, in two body styles: Grand Sport and Sports Tourer.

Since this is an attempt at trying to keep it competitive in the rather crowded mid-size segment that includes rivals such as the Volkswagen Passat, Ford Mondeo, Skoda Superb, Mazda6, Toyota Camry and Peugeot 508, the 2020 Insignia retains the GM platform. However, it could get some hardware changes, maybe even swapping some of its engines for PSA-sourced ones, although nothing is certain yet.

Now, it may have GM roots, but the refreshed Insignia will try to put distance itself from its past. Thus, the front and rear ends have been redesigned, getting new headlights and taillamps, reworked bumpers and a smaller duck lid spoiler in the GSi grade. The overall styling will bring it closer to some of Opel’s (Vauxhall’s) newer models, like the Corsa, which is entirely new and sports PSA underpinnings.

Some trim revisions are expected inside, but this is where the updates will pretty much end, given that the Insignia already received a new infotainment system last year.

Opel is thought to introduce the facelifted Insignia at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, so we will likely learn more about it in the weeks to come.
