Meet the Opel Insignia Sports Tourer

According to Opel’s official website, the Insignia Sports Tourer is a “sporty estate car that elegantly conceals its great practicality.”

The vehicle has a wide stance that is highlighted by an integrated wheel arch extensions. It also features a smooth wrap-around profile that blends the light clusters, fog light, grille, and “wing” light signature.

While there are a lot of estate cars with a “van-like” profile, the Opel Insignia Sports Tourer have coupe-like lines that were drawn out into the wrap-around tailgate. It even integrated the sedan’s longer roofline with style.

Its rear hatch was fully sculpted to extend its sporting lines. In addition, its waist-level mounting of the lights, wrap-around rear screen, chrome Opel wing motif, wide-track, and roof spoiler were combined to make a strong impression.

The flowing lines and soft curves of the car’s exterior were also present inside. All main surfaces were textured with “soft touch” materials, which gave the cabin a premium tactile quality. Moreover, the Opel Insignia Sports Tourer featured a combination of high-quality materials with the most refined ergonomics and technologies.

As a result, the car delivered an all-around comfort for the driver and passengers alike. Furthermore, the increased body volume enhanced interior space. The sedan also featured premium grade nappa leather such as the black “Indian Night” and “Indian Summer.” It surrounds everyone inside the car with long distance luxury that looks and feels unique.

Opel’s Insignia Sports Tourer definitely features a sporty, yet elegant style, which is designed to meet the highest standards in ergonomics and comfort by combining high-quality surfaces, chrome accents, and bold colors.

At the moment, the car’s latest model costs 26,585 euros or around $34,678.99.

Buick-version of Insignia Sports Tourer

Prior to this, it was reported that a wagon version of the sedan was spotted on the Michigan roads. At that time, GM was still contemplating whether to bring the same unit under the Buick brand.

Whether seeing the Opel Insignia Sports Tourer confirms the previous rumor remains to be seen. After all, who wouldn’t love a sporty wagon?
