2018 Opel Insignia Spotted during Test. The new 2018 Opel Insignia prototype has been spotted during testing in Arctic Circle recently. A car that is also called Holden Commodore in Australia is reported to get updated look and new line up of engine as well. The prototype still wears the heavy disguise. But, we have some leads you may want to check out. Here is the detail.
2018 Opel Insignia Specifications
Features, Exterior, and Interior
From the overall look, along with the entire camouflage it wears, this 2018 Opel Insignia model adopted a lot of things from Opel Monza concept back in 2013. This model will be built in Front-wheel and all-wheel drive platform while it will be no longer than five meters.
There will be two trims to offer on this model including wagon and coupe-like sedan. This model is also reported to shed significant weight, around 200 kg lighter than current 1,800 kg weight due to the use of lightweight metals and high-strength steel. Most possibly, this model will be offered in few variants including the sporty option in the lineup.
Unfortunately, there is no information on the difference between the variants at this point. However, it has been confirmed that GKN has added Twinster rear differential on this model. It means this car will have rear-biased handling feel when we drive it.
This 2018 Commodore car will also get several nice features including Wi-Fi hotspot function, 4G internet connectivity, driver assistance technology, and LED matrix headlights.
Powertrain, Engine — 2018 Opel Insignia / Holden Commodore
As we can guess with the entire emission restriction and regulation, this 2018 Opel Insignia car won’t be powered by a V8 engine. Instead, this Commodore 2018 car will be powered by turbocharged of the V6 engine that generates around 600 kW of power output.

This is possibly going to be the top-range engine. For other variants, the engine will be turbocharged four-cylinder of diesel and petrol engines. Even though transmission hasn’t been confirmed yet, the V6 engine will be mated with all-wheel drive configuration. Looking at the platform supports front-wheel drive as well, it should come as optional too on other variants.
