Opel Insignia Adds New Biturbo Engine At Top Of Diesel Range

Offered exclusively with an eight-speed auto and an AWD system.

A range-topping biturbo diesel version of the second generation Opel Insignia will celebrate its world premiere at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show next week, where also the Insignia GSI and Grandland X will be displayed. It is powered by a newly-designed 2.0-liter engine, which produces 210 horsepower (154 kilowatts) at 4,000 rpm, and which we expect to see in the GSI sometime next year.

Thanks to sequential two-stage turbocharging, the diesel mill generates massive torque of 354 pound-feet (480 Newton-meters) at low 1,500 rpm. The four-cylinder motor will be mated exclusively to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, sending power to all four wheels through a high-tech all-wheel drive with torque vectoring.

This near-premium setup is good for a 0 to 62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) acceleration in 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 145 mph (233 kph). Opel is giving fuel consumption numbers corresponding to the new Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), which is considered much more realistic than the NEDC cycle, showing the vehicle will need between 7.5 and 8.0 liters per 100 kilometers (29 – 31 miles per gallon) combined.

Interestingly, a new generation AdBlue injection ensures the Insignia 2.0 BiTurbo already meets Euro 6.2 emissions standard, which becomes mandatory for all registrations on the Old continent as of autumn 2018.

Available for the full range of Insignia variants (Insignia Grand Sport, Insignia Sports Tourer, and Insignia Country Tourer), the new 2.0-liter diesel can already be ordered with production expected to start right after the Frankfurt show.

Insignia's diesel portfolio now consists of three 1.6-liter and two 2.0-liter motors, with power ranging from 110 hp (85 kW) to 210 hp (154 kW). Below you can find an overview of the diesel engines currently available for the second generation of the model. All figures relate to the European markets.
