In four and five-door models with a six-speed manual gearbox and Start/Stop, both output variants (88 kW/120 hp and 103 kW/140 hp) consume just 3.7 liters of fuel per 100 km over the combined cycle (according to Regulation [EC] No 715/2007), while the Sports Tourer achieves 3.9 l/100 km. As a result, the Opel Insignia 2.0 CDTI is the most fuel efficient diesel car in its class. At the same time, engineers have made the new Insignia’s body even more aerodynamic.
