2017 Opel Insignia B Sports Tourer – What We Know So Far


The new generation of Insignia will go on sale soon, and while the sedan has been tested for some time now, the Sports Tourer trim has appeared for the first time.

Unfortunately, there is too much camouflage to tell something more about the Sports Tourer. What we can say for sure is that it is more spacious than a sedan, but because of the camouflage, the car looks more ponderous. There is no doubt that the new Insignia will be a fascinating car.

Opel focuses more on style, unlike its bitter rival Renault Megane Sport Tourer, which focuses on space. However, the new model will certainly come with large cargo capacity. For the record, the current Sports Tourer has 530 liters of capacity while the seats are up, but if you decide to fold them into the floor, you will get up to 1,530 liters.

Hopefully, General Motors in Europe will be able to produce a Country Tourer soft-roader and the OPC version as a part of the Insignia. Rumor has it that a Drift Mode will be added to the OPC model, but that remains to be confirmed by the company.


GM will use E2XX platform, which will reduce the weight of the vehicle by 440 pounds (200 kg). Moreover, the E2XX platform can be a support for an electric motor, which implies that we may see a hybrid version of the Insignia in the future.

The 2017 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer will hit the market sometime in 2017 and it will also reach the US soil.
