The second generation Opel Insignia will reportedly make its world premiere in 2017

The second generation Opel Insignia will reportedly make its world premiere in 2017.

Car reports the vehicle will be heavily influenced by the Monza concept in terms of design, although it will be less dramatic in its appearance. The new Insignia will feature a sloped roofline and will be more like a four-door coupe rather than a big hatch.

Speaking of sizes, the car will be slightly bigger than the current model with 10 cm stretched wheelbase. Thanks to this, the rear legroom will be considerably larger. Our source also says the vehicle will be offered only as a hatch and an estate. What's more, the machine will be up to 130 kg (287 lbs) lighter than its predecessor, ensuring a better fuel consumption.

Technical details are limited by the moment, but the car is expected to gain a large digital instrument display and a head-up display in the cabin, as well as new and updated engines.

If rumors turn out to be true, the 2017 Insignia will be revealed during the 2017 IAA in Frankfurt.
