The new model family, which makes its world premiere at the London Motor Show in July 2008, sets technology and design standards for the Opel brand and mid-size segment.

New name for a new era

Opel (or Vauxhall in the UK) has just announced the new name for the new mid-size model which is set to debut at the 2008 British Motor Show. The Opel Vectra will go through life as the Opel Insignia.

Alain Visser, Chief Marketing Officer, General Motors Europe says: “A closer look at our groundbreaking GTC concept car gives a good idea of how exciting Vauxhall’s new design language will be.”

We have of course been covering the development of the Opel Insignia / Vectra over the past year and will be there to bring you the latest live from the British Motor Show in summer.
