Performance

The German manufacturer decided to offer all-wheel drive as an option for its customers. Driving and road stability during difficult conditions is improved significantly while the air vents maintain a sufficient downforce to ensure a pleasant driving experience.

Exterior

Opel reworked the exterior featuring a brand new front. Two air vents have been placed vertically on the sides, right beneath the headlights that have been extended, reaching out to the sides of the car.

The front grille has chromed edges and another air vent has been placed right underneath it. Looking at the rear, the shape of the tail lights have been changed. They are now extended to the side while the bumper is now prominent because of its new shape.

Following the legacy of the Insignia line, the interior is motorsport friendly. The engineers placed a larger navigation screen right between two air vents.

Chrome elements have been added to create a contrast with the overall black theme of the interior. The seats come covered in black leather.

The 2014 Opel Insignia OPC Sports Tourer manages to offer both the benefits of a sports car and a station wagon, making it a viable choice for those seeking a family car that can handle all kinds of driving conditions.
