In case you think that you are looking at just yet another ordinary wagon, it’s better to look again because this is a production-ready 2018 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer GSi. The high-performance vehicle has been spied while it was testing a new engine. As you can see, the carmaker hasn’t bothered to hide the new design, which means that they are planning to introduce it pretty soon, most likely at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. If that happens, the estate model will make its official debut side to side with the sedan sibling.
As you can see, the 2018 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer GSi will look truly amazing. It’s equipped with really big 20-inch wheels with large Brembo brakes. The testing vehicle uses black brake calipers, yet we are sure that the production model won’t skip the chance to add more attractive red accents, especially if the manufacturer decides to keep this attractive red color option. The new front end looks really aggressive. It sports a handsome grille and a massive bumper with large vents with metal inserts. The rear hatch features a completely new pair of taillights and reshaped spoiler. Below, the wagon gets a redesigned rear bumper with dual exhaust tips.
The new generation Opel Insignia Sports Tourer GSi is definitely getting a new option beneath the hood. In place of today’s turbocharged 2.8-liter V6, the high-performance wagon will have a smaller 2.0-liter turbocharged. However, this option won’t lack power. It will develop around 260 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of twist, which is more than enough for the amazing performance, especially when we take into count that the successor comes around 160 kilograms lighter from the current model.
The prototype of the 2018 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer GSi hasn’t shown us the new interior. However, we think it’s going to get pretty much the same cabin as the sedan sibling. The only difference will be wagon’s larger cargo. As we have heard, the new generation model will offer about 520 liter of cargo, which is quite impressive.
