Your name will be Opel Insignia Grand Sport.

The Opel Insignia Grand Sport not only changed in name from its predecessor. Now intended to be a car more passionate and elegant with his body coupe, having taken a new architecture for its development. This has allowed him to lose weight up to 175 pounds despite being slightly longer with a 4.897 mm, increase the distance between axes of 92 mm, in order to improve the habitat and reduce the Cx up to 0,26. The height of the bodywork, with the roof curved, now is 29 mm lower, while the track width has increased by 11 mm on both axes.
Increased interior space
This change of external dimensions must have had an impact in the interior space. The Badge that is now in marketing, not highlighted by a few squares later especially spacious, especially in the height for the head. Opel says that the occupants of these rear seats will now have a larger space, winning 32 mm to the height of the waist, a 25 mm to the height of the shoulders, 25 mm more knee room and 8 mm in height. The volume of the trunk declared is 490 liters, to 1,450 if you flip down the seats.
Opel usually wager quite by the technology and this Badge Grand Sport will not be an exception.

Opel did not want to pronounce on its range mechanics, but on a drive system integral with the distribution vector of the pair. This system allows, in theory, improve the distribution of energy between each wheel. Eliminates the rear differential in favor of two clutches multiplate controlled electronically, which allows you to send more torque to one or the other wheel. This will be especially interesting in dynamic driving or on slippery surfaces, as you will be able to send more power to the outside wheel of the curve, and so greatly reduce the understeer.
