Opel Insignia Hatchback




No official.

Another good looking Opel.
But, for once, I think the sedan might actually be the better looking version.

This one is not planned for the US. Our next Aura will have a trunk.

I don't see a difference except for a rear wiper. What's the point of this car if it can't store more than the sedan? The wagon makes sense though.

Looks better than the 7er!

vince, this is not a hatchback but the new popular style in europe. Look at the new passat cc. Al these models are based on the mercedes cls.

The point is that hatches like this one are fairly popular in Europe. They'll sell just fine.

However, you are right, a Wagon would make great sense. As I've mentioned before I'm probably going to end up buying a GM Lambda CUV (or maybe a Ford Flex) but I would love to buy a truly sporty wagon instead.

Curse you Pontiac and your non wagon version of the G8......

Actually it is a hatchback. Other websites that have shown these official photos confirm this. Plus you can see the rear wiper in the middle photo.

I love the style of the Insignia. But I generally prefer proper sedans or wagons. Not in-between hatchbacks. Is there any real space benefit to this style of hatchback versus a sedan with fold-down rear seats?

Would be a great alternative for us jilted Mazda6 fastback fans.
