Opel Insignia presentin January 2012, the new Opel’s leading model that permanently improves. Now will be presented with a new diesel line-up with a 190 hp bi-turbo diesel that consumes just 4.9 l/100 km. There are also dynamic-oriented features, such as the super sport chassis of the Insignia OPC for all-wheel drive variants, while a new radar-assisted distance control provides even more security.
Opel to agile, responsive response laid out the new 2.0 CDTI BiTurbo with 195 hp and 400 Nm. The Opel Insignia accelerates in just 8.7 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h and reaches a top speed of 230 km/h. As a four-door sedan with front wheel drive, the Insignia Biturbo occurs on average with only 4.9 liters of 100 kilometers, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 129 g/km. With the manual transmission fitted as standard with start/stop technology, the new engine is one of the most economical vehicles in its class.
The Biturbo systems of insignia are two different-sized loader works alone or in combination. The smaller turbo at low engine speeds is particularly quickly up to speed. This leads to an instantaneous response to accelerator pedal of the motor commands and avoids the unwanted turbo lag. Already at 1,500 rpm, 350 Nm of torque is available.
In the mid-range work, both turbochargers, with pre-compressed, the greater the intake air before it is further compressed in the smaller charger. A bypass valve diverts a portion of the exhaust gases continuously to the larger turbo. The result is a consistently powerful acceleration. From about 3,000 rpm only the large loader is streamed, ensuring the sovereign development of strength even at higher speeds.
The new 2.0 CDTI BiTurbo is in all body variants (notchback four-door, five-door hatchback sedan and Sports Tourer) available. In addition, the buyer can choose between a manual six-speed manual gearbox, a six-speed automatic as well as front and all-wheel drive (with electronic limited slip differential on the rear axle).
Another important innovation represents the super sport chassis available for all insignia all wheel drive variants. Originally developed for the stressed sporty OPC models, this technology for wider buyers is available. The package includes the front suspension with high-performance shock absorber (HiPerStrut) of the 325-horsepower of Insignia OPC, which further improves handling and steering precision, and a high-performance brake system made by Brembo.
Also on the active security filed Opel. Opel Insignia customers will now receive an adaptive cruise control (ACC), which uses a radar system that is hidden behind the front grill. The system maintains the selected speed; the speed adjusts depending on traffic conditions but permanently so that a pre-set safety distance is not exceeded.
In addition, the radar allows additional functions: the “Following Distance Indication” (FDI) informs the driver visually on the distance to the preceding vehicle in seconds. The “Forward Collision Alert” (FCA) warns visually and acoustically when a collision threat to a forward-moving car. The risk of a collision is detected, the “Collision Imminent Braking” (CIB) is delayed, the vehicle automatically.
