Not only does it look absolutely brilliant, but the new car may go a long way in helping GM's ailing fortunes. The Insignia will be sold as the next-gen Saturn Aura in the States and there is speculation that it may even return to Australasia as the new Vectra (or possibly change name to Insignia),
Update - GM Holden would not comment about the possibility of a Vectra comeback to Australia.
The new Opel will be in European dealerships this October with five engines choices which all meet Euro 5 emissions standards. All variants are available with manual or six-speed automatic transmissions.
Buyers can pick between a hatchback or saloon and the car sits five. Some of the new features include a peculiar new headlight system which works out where to point the headlights (nine different settings) under different conditions.
The entry model will be powered by a four-cylinder 104kW petrol engine, hard hitting torque will be available via 2.0-litre turbodiesels tuned to 97kW and 120kW. There is also an EcoFLEX version available which promises very low CO2 emissions. At the very top sits a V6 engine with 194kW.
The new Insignia/Vectra will be on display for the first time at the London Motor Show in late July.
Should Holden bring back the Vectra? Would it succeed against Ford's gorgeous Mondeo?
