2013 Opel Insignia facelift caught testing for first time

The new Opel Insignia has been on the market since 2008 and it is time for the model to receive a mid-cycle facelift. Our spies have managed to catch a prototype while it was testing that displays a few of the changes we can expect.

The minimal camouflage attempts to hide the new front fascia where changes appear to be more focused on the bumper and restyled fog-lights. The rear will also see some changes dominated by the remodeled taillights.

Technical updates are consigned to the rumormill at the moment. The least we should expect is some fuel economy busting tuning updates to its vast array of petrol and diesel engines.

Sales of the Opel Insignia are limited to the European market, but The US market will also see the changed further down the line in the Buick Regal.

A worthwhile car from Opel. Tested it and almost bought it. I only rejected it for a newer model car.

This really is a great car for money, only minor changes are needed, nothing big.

It could be a Hybrid or electric version (frontflap like the Ampera, numberplate GG:EV and no exhaust). The Insignia got a Facelift last year, so it is a bit too early for another one.

Insignia got only some new engines not facelift...this will be real facelift, but this car after 4 year looks still fresh and modern compared with opponents.
