The New Opel Insignia, which will make its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, will offer new powertrains, including a new 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine. Both variants (the 88 kW/120 hp and 103 kW/140 hp) consume, either as the four or five-door model with six-speed manual transmission and Start/Stop system, 3.7 liters of fuel per 100 km (63.6 mpg US) in the combined cycle (Sports Tourer: 3.9 l/100 km, or 60.3 mpg US).
This is equivalent to 99 g/km CO2 and 104 g/km CO2, respectively. The 88 kW/120 hp Turbo diesel provides up to 320 N·m (236 lb-ft) and the 103 kW/140 hp model up to 370 N·m (273 lb-ft) of torque, due to an automatic overboost function.
The new Opel Insignia offers the choice between the three propulsion alternatives: gasoline, diesel and LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas); power output ranges from 81 kW/110 hp to 239 kW/325 hp.
The top-of-the-line diesel is the 143 kW/195 hp 2.0 BiTurbo CDTI. The high-performance diesel with sequential, two-stage turbochargers delivers torque of 400 N·m (295 lb-ft).
The most prominent gasoline engines are the two turbo direct injection units: the 2.0 SIDI (SIDI = Spark Ignition Direct Injection) Turbo with 184 kW/250 hp and 400 N·m maximum torque as well as the 1.6 SIDI Turbo from the newest engine generation with 125 kW/170 hp and 260 N·m (192 lb-ft), and even up to 280 N·m (207 lb-ft) with overboost.
The gasoline units can be coupled with a six-speed manual transmission and Start/Stop functionality or with a new, low-friction six-speed automatic gearbox. In addition to front-wheel-drive, the 2.0-liter SIDI Turbo is also available with all-wheel-drive.
An alternative powertrain option is the 103 kW/140 hp Opel Insignia 1.4 LPG with maximum torque of 200 N·m (148 lb-ft). It meets—like its gasoline version—the future Euro 6 emissions standard.
