Could debut in Geneva

The Insignia has been on the market for a few years now, so Opel is preparing to introduce an updated version at the Geneva Motor Show.

Recently caught by our spy photographers, the 2013 Insignia has a new front bumper with an enlarged grille and restyled headlights. The rear end is heavily camouflaged but appears to have a new bumper and updated taillights.

Our spies weren't able to snap interior pictures, but the cabin is only expected to have minor updates. This means we can expect revised trim and possibly an updated infotainment system.

Engine options could carryover with minor modifications for improved performance and reduced fuel consumption. There has also been rumors of an upgraded OPC with a turbocharged 2.8-liter V6 engine that develops as much as 400 hp (298 kW).

Aggressive, mean, elegant, beautiful, perfect composing. Fun, the old locks a bit boring compered to this. If you think it looks like something else… well, that’s because you don’t have the eyes of an artist - you have the eyes of a plumber… The point is – You see… o yes… but you don’t understand that you are seeing… AND you don’t observe things you are seeing. Already Jesus did say “You have eyes and yet do not see”.

With those new headlights it looks too much like the Chevrolet Malibu. And it's not good. Poor American design.

How is the design American? The headlights look to be similar to the Astra GTC which is a purely German design.

it is not an American design, it is only that GM sometimes "steals" German design and use it on American spec cars either by re-badge-ing as with the Saturn Astra for example I always say the Americans should leave OPEL alone and see how OPEL will prosper

Remember also the Cadillac Catera and the OPEL Omega?

@PAA: Just look at the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu. It has exactly the same huge headlights. The current Insignia has a slighter one, which is closer to the Astra GTC. @alihijazi: Of course i don't mean the "badge-engineered" cars. In many other cases when GM is just rebadging the whole car, as they did with Saturn Astra, Buick Regal or Opel Mokka as Buick, or Astra as Buick in China. I meant only that these new headlights remind me to the Chevrolet Malibu which i don't like.
