Opel has released new details about the 2014 Insignia and Insignia Country Tourer.

Set to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the models will come equipped with a new IntelliLink infotainment system that was designed to offer clear, simple and intuitive operation.

The system features an 8-inch touchscreen display which provides easy access to common function such as the radio, telephone and navigation system. It can also store up to sixty different favorites for telephone contacts, radio stations and navigation destinations.

More importantly, the IntelliLink system has a touchpad input, on the center console, which recognizes handwriting and reacts immediately to finger movements. This allows for a host of new functions including fast swiping (ie: a two-finger swiping motion changes the audio source, while a three-finger swipe brings up the favorites list), pinch-to-zoom (for the navigation display) and easy entry of navigation destinations.
