Adaptive Cruise Control maintains the distance to the vehicle in front by controlling braking and acceleration. The multimedia systems compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available in the versions Multimedia, Multimedia Navi and Multimedia Navi Pro.

All three and four-cylinder engines belong to a new generation of state-of-the-art powertrains. The 1.5-litre diesel engine with 90 kW (122 hp) is the basis of the offer. Compared to the previously used power units, fuel consumption according to NEDC1 is up to 18% lower. The three-cylinder engine is up to 50 kilograms lighter than its predecessor. The more powerful Insignia can be equipped with 125 kW (170 hp) or 147 kW (200 hp) gasoline engines and even 169 kW (230 hp) in the GSi version. The two-litre gasoline engines will be the first Opel engines with cylinder deactivation. When the power requirement is lower, the timing control system disengages the two cylinders and the engine uses less fuel. The range is completed by a 2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine (127 kW / 174 hp). The new gearboxes with reduced internal friction contribute to reducing fuel consumption and improving comfort. Insignia buyers have a choice a six-speed manual gearbox and 8- or 9-speed automatic gearboxes.
