The new Opel Insignia combines high quality materials with the most refined ergonomics and technologies to deliver deep and lasting all-round comfort for driver and passengers.


Ergonomic sports seat

No matter how or how far you drive, seat comfort is a vital necessity. The fully orthopaedic ergonomic sports seat adjusts 8 ways with 4-way pneumatic lumbar support to suit your posture perfectly. Also, the adjustable seat extension cushion delivers relaxing leg support. At the top end perforated leather in black and beige, with heating and ventilation, fingertip electric operation and memory bring the new Opel Insignia into the highest luxury category, but the manually adjustable cloth covered version provides the same level of orthopaedic support.


The ergonomic sports seat is approved and recommended by AGR (Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V.), a German medical association that has set orthopaedic requirements for car seats.


HVAC & Heated leather steering wheel

Heated steering wheel? Heated or ventilated seat controls? You’ll find the controls all sensibly grouped together, right by the air conditioning and demisters. The dual-zone Electronic Climate Control features capacitive touchscreens for easy, intuitive control, adding extra convenience for driver and co-driver. That means maximized convenience also means maximized comfort, whether you want warmth for the cold mornings, or cool air for sticky summer afternoons.


Advanced Park Pilot

Using front and rear sensors the Advanced Park Pilot can detect a suitable parking space and then using visual instructions displayed on the central display guides you into it. Push-button activated, it is computer controlled and also senses obstacles. Both written and visual graphics indicate the steering angles and direction. The result is perfect parallel parking, even in confined spaces.


Electric parking brake

The touch-operated electric parking brake on the new Opel Insignia offers both increased parking security and decreased driver effort. Also in combination with Hill Start Assist and Hill Hold, both of which prevent the car rolling backwards when stopped on a hill, it gets you moving smoothly and effortlessly for increased comfort and safety.


Open & Start

The keyless system of the new Opel Insignia boosts comfort in day-to-day operation and affords effective protection against theft. Open & Start recognizes the driver's User Identification Unit (UID) via antennas in the front door handles and the bumper. It unlocks all doors if the button of any door handle is pushed. For keyless Start/Stop, the UID is recognized by antennas inside the car. There is no conventional ignition lock, the steering wheel is electronically locked and unlocked. The engine is started and switched off without the need for a key, using START/STOP button. If necessary, the driver's door can also be opened manually using the integrated flap key in the UID.


Smart storage solutions

The new Opel Insignia puts convenient pockets and compartments within easy reach of the driver and passengers. There are seat back map pockets, door pockets, a driver’s storage bin, cup holders front and rear, a large glove box, and a center rear armrest storage space. You want to use your computer or another electronic device? A special option is the 230 V power outlet in the floor console.


Luggage compartment

With a load volume of 500 l the new Opel Insignia offers one of the most capacious luggage compartments in class. The capacity is certainly enough for more than a holiday weekend; also it can take care of all business and leisure needs. The folded 60:40 rear seat back allows a maximum load volume of 1,015 l, when folding the headrests can stay in place.


The trunk lid of the new Opel Insignia can be opened by remote control or the touchpad, which is integrated in the Opel logo. It swings automatically to the full-open position. A side compartment in the trunk keeps smaller items easily at hand, whilst another compartment under the load floor conceals items that are needed only occasionally.
