A buldging shoulder line also adds to a sense of strength

With the departure of General Motors from the Opel brand, this will likely be the German brand’s final GM-based Insignia. 

Opel’s flagship sedan is designed with a coupe-like stance and actually hides a very practical car behind its sporty facade. Its front winged grille and double winged adaptive Intellilux LED Matrix headlights (which carries 32 LED segments) presents a business-like face. Their sedan also features a large styling crease running along the lower end of both doors, and upswung at the rear, almost as-if to hint of a large side intake or a flared rear wheel arch… which of-course it does not have one.

A buldging shoulder line also adds to a sense of strength, beginning from the front door and continued on with the LED tail lamps, which also features its double winged design. In keeping with its coupe-like appearance, the Insignia Grand Coupe’s window line also features faux “windows” in the “C” pillars.

Unlike the “bread and butter” 1.5 litre model we had a go at a while ago, the 2.0 Insignia is equipped with larger 20” rims and 245/35 tyres, which fill up those large wheel arches quite a deal better. Some may even place this car in the same box as the Volkswagen Arteon, which in essence is marketed as a 4-door coupe, and incidentally also sports a lift back-style boot lid.
