The 2017 Opel Insignia has returned in a new batch of spy photos.

Looking sleeker and more stylish than its predecessor, the redesigned model has an evolutionary grille which is flanked by slender headlights.  Moving further back, we can see a rakish windscreen, a coupe-like roofline and a stylish rear end.

Opel has been relatively tight-lipped about the model but previous reports have suggested it will be about 10 centimeters longer than the current model and ride on an all-new platform that will enable the car to weigh up to 200 kg (441 lbs) than its predecessor.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but we can expect a variety of new and upgraded petrol and diesel units.
