Article by Christian Andrei, on December 16, 2010

A six-speed automatic transmission is now available for the OPC version in the Opel Insignia range. Opel claims that it has optimized this transmission to offer enhanced power and comfort.

The four-dour notchback version equipped with the new unit has a price tag of EUR 48,665, while the five-door hatchback is priced at EUR 49,055 and the Sports Tourer has a price of EUR 50,140.

In a statement, Opel says that this automatic transmission doesn’t change the performance figures much and that the performance, consumption and emission levels are identical to the model with a manual transmission.

The sedan and the Sports Tourer are both able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 7 seconds. The sedan has a 6.3 seconds record while the Sports Tourer has a sprint time of 6.6 seconds.

Meanwhile, the top speed is electronically-limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). In addition, the ratings for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions aren't much different from those of the manual configuration.

With the automatic transmission, the vehicle can attain 10.7 l/100 km (21.9 mpg) and 251 g/km (notch and hatchback) and 11.0 l/100 km (21.3 mpg) and 259 g/km (Sports Tourer).

Michael F. Meyer, Product Marketing Director at Adam Opel GmbH, said that the company is making this offering in response to clamor from customers who want an automatic. He added that Opel has expanded the Insignia OPC drive train offer with this alternative and making it available “at a great price.”
