Video: Opel InsigniaSat, 19 Apr 2008
After months of teaser photos, GM's Opel division has finally taken the wraps off its new Insignia sedan. Featuring a flowing design demarcated by a coupé-like roofline, the body is accented by a distinctive 'blade' feature line that runs from behind the front wheel along the side of the car, emphasizing its taut, rakish lines.
"We've re-defined our design vocabulary," says Mark Adams, Vice President Design, GM Europe. "The Insignia is muscular, but lithe and curvaceous. Our aim was to develop a confident look which reinforced the car's superb driving dynamics, but also one that made it clear that this was a premium product."
The exterior design language spreads into the cabin, which emphasizes luxury and quality. The dashboard's top-pad wraps around from the instrument panel to the door, creating a unique wing-shape.
