The new Opel Insignia also carries the IntelliLink infotainment system, which includes an 8-inch colour touchscreen, voice recognition, steering wheel mounted controls and a handwriting recognition touchpad.
Five trim levels are available in the new Insignia – S, SC, SE, SRi limited edition and Elite.
