2018 Opel Insignia Grand Sport Reviews – In 2009, the Opel Insignia was the sacred car of the year. This large sedan which began to accuse the weight of years is about to shoot his bow. We took the wheel of her replacement which incidentally adds “Grand Sport” to its name.
2018 Opel Insignia Grand Sport Redesign Exterior Interior
When the first pictures of the 2018 Opel Insignia Grand Sport came out, many observers were surprised by his convincing design. In reality, we are not disappointed either. This sleek sedan is not without elegance while displaying a modernity in welcome look. In fact, she has definitely nothing to do with the one it replaces. We appreciate the front which revolves around a wide grille, which coupled with his look at leds, give him a certain stature when we see her. His fluid profile remains marked by a comma to lighten its length. The effect is successful. As for the rear, it appears rather simple and integrated perfectly in the tailgate. In addition, she is reduced in chrome, and so much the better.

Inside, if we recognize the House presentation, there is still a significant improvement in terms of finishing. We however still significantly down compared to what is best in the segment, without necessarily trying on the side of the Germans. It is rather well installed on board, to the front and the back with plenty of space. The trunk cube 490 liters (1 450 seats folded down), and does very easily. The digital display instead of the counters is complemented by a head-up display, which projects information on driving directly on the windshield. In addition, she retrieves equipment that is now part of the basis of modern sedans staffing segment, as an aid to maintaining leadership, or among others an automatic regulator for quite long links behind the wheel. It offers the luxury of offering heated seats. in the back!
On the road
For once, we made the choice on a technical basis which will have little chance of finding followers in France. Or even not at all, because, except error, our powerful turbocharged petrol engine will appear not prior to the catalog in our country, especially for questions of CO2. You either gave us a lot of hope for the arrival of an OPC version. However, we were strongly interested in the new all-wheel drive and the box auto to 8 reports that will be part in terms of staffing for the France. With such power, we were able to test the 4×4 mode. In fact, everything is done automatically, as on all sedans of the kind that have 4 wheel drive. Roads wet from the hinterland to Frankfurt so put us in ideal situations to see Act. It is without hesitation that we crash the pedal on the right at the exit of the turn while remaining alerted to counter a possible surprise. Not only there is not, but increasingly the AWD rejects the couple on the right wheels to ensure exemplary traction, but also help turn. You’d even have a self-locking, which isn’t the case.
The Opel 2018 Opel Insignia Grand Sport chassis rather well balanced, which has no tendency to the coverage, except if they approached a turn too fast, having not yet invented magic is so serenely. Side brakes, the pedal is easily measurable, but they still showed some signs of weakness, after according to the successively supported braking during round-trips for purposes of video shooting on a steep road. Sports mode boosts little things, but ultimately it is the ‘Tour’ world, distinguished by a depreciation softened, ideal to swallow kilometers of highways in sublimating the comfort. It must stop on the road, on the other hand, to preserve intact stomachs. The new gearbox automatic 8 reports, does a very good job, as long as we don’t ask him anything. She ticks off its gears smoothly in normal driving. Even hustling it, she will look for the best value without hesitation when you accelerate frankly. It’s a whole different story when you’re trying to take the top, via the pallets or selector hand. Being rather slow to order when we retrograde, it supports often a second time to press the space… except that it takes twice the information, and goes into 1st while we wanted to just go home the second. Here, however, the Jolt is pretty brutal. In fact, forget the sequential mode, which anyway does not bring much in the end, given the good separation of the transmission.
Opel improves with this new generation of 2018 Opel Insignia Grand Sport, not only its own standards but gets a little better in tune with the cons
