GM will introduce its new Opel Insignia car at the London Motor Show in July. The model will be a platform for a number of conventional gasoline and diesel powertrains, and will subsequently offer an EcoFLEX version (earlier post) offering very low CO2 emissions in addition to other, more powerful variants.

The Insignia will launch with seven engines. All meet Euro 5 emissions standards and come with either manual or automatic six-speed transmissions. The four gasoline engines range from a four-cylinder 115 hp unit to a V6 with 260 hp. The three new direct-injection diesels feature a displacement of 2.0 liter and outputs spanning from 110 to 160 hp.
The Opel Insignia sets new standards in technology and innovation—this will be obvious right from the launch. But we are keeping several cards up our sleeves when it comes to environmental compatibility, excitement and safety, which we will play strategically overtime.—Alain Visser, Chief Marketing Officer, GM Europe
