Opel coins new range-topping 2-liter diesel engine for the Insignia

Two turbochargers, AdBlue injection, Euro 6.2 compliance

Built at Opel's facility in Kaiserslautern, the new 2.0-liter BiTurbo engine promises cleanliness and high torque for the Insignia range.

The new powerplant makes 154 kW (210 hp) at 4,000 rpm and 480 Nm of twist available from as low as 1,500 rpm. Opel says these figures were possible by fitting the engine with sequential two-stage turbocharging.

What's more, the mill can take the Insignia BiTurbo from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds and further towards a top speed of 233 km/h, as it works together with the new eight-speed automatic gearbox and Opel's all-wheel drive system with torque vectoring.

On the frugality front, the new unit is said to drink 6.9 l/100 km in the combined cycle (NEDC) and 8.0-7.5 l/100 km (WLTP – Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure), while letting out 183 g/km of CO2 emissions.
