The new Opel Insignia GSi is a sports sedan for those who like something special. The chassis with its dynamic set-up and the particularly high level of grip, in combination with all-wheel drive, ensures a rewarding driving experience as well as maximum safety. The new eight-speed automatic transmission can be operated via shift-paddles at the steering wheel – like a racing car – for an even more active driving experience. Typical of the new Insignia-generation is the combination of lightweight design, low centre of gravity and 2.0-litre turbo power.
The exterior comes with large chrome air-intakes at the front and a rear spoiler for the necessary down-force on the rear axle. The finishing touches are added by the leather upholstered, integrated sports seats (specially developed for the GSi), and leather sports steering wheel and aluminium pedals.
The sports sedan is powered by a gasoline turbo engine that combines fuel efficiency with performance. The powerful 2.0-litre turbo produces 191 kW and develops generous torque of 400 Newton metres. The four-cylinder unit is mated to an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission. The driver has the option of shifting gears via paddles at the steering wheel. With the transmission shifting automatically the driver can even pre-select the shift points in Standard and Sport modes. In addition to the 2.0-litre gasoline turbo, the GSi will also offer a powerful new diesel engine.
