The Opel Insignia Sports Tourer has been officially presented before it debuted at the Geneva Motor Show. We’ve seen the Insignia wagon completely in spy shots already, but we can’t miss another chance to show you the vehicle that could a little sneak peak of Buick Regal wagon that is coming.
The Sports Tourer will offer European buyers to choose between gas and diesel engine
So as the Opel Insignia sedan, which was officially presented at the end of last year but with the wagon, the Sports Tourer will offer European buyers to choose between gas and diesel engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. There hasn’t been revealed all the engine specs yet. The wagon is also using an upgraded version of GM’s FlexRide system. That system lets the driver tune damping, throttle response, steering and shift timing through three modes that can be selected. Also, an option will be torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system.
The Insignia Sports Tourer’s best thing could be its outside design. With its low-slung profile and sloped D-pillar, the Insignia gives the Volvo V90 some tough wagon competition. The inside isn’t as impressive, but still looks good. A touchscreen without frame in the center stack has Opel’s version of the IntelliLink infotainment system, which is goes with with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Just like many other GM models in the U.S., the Insignia is offering a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that connects all passengers to the internet. Other options are a 360-degree camera system, IntelliLux adaptive LED matrix headlights and lane keep assist.
Opel Insignia wagons have been tested in the U.S. before, but it’s not veryclear if Buick still wants a five-door body style for the Regal. Now that we know more about the Opel Insignia Sports Tourer, we expect that a Regal wagon is still in the offer.
