Opel has continued to enhance and refine its highly successful flagship, the Insignia. In addition to equipping the Insignia with a new, fuel-efficient 2.0L BiTurbo diesel, Opel will be offering a new radar system located behind the front grill for enhanced active safety.
Insignia customers can now opt for the radar-based Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). The new system maintains the selected speed during cruising, yet automatically adjusts the vehicle speed according to traffic conditions to secure a pre-set safety distance with vehicles ahead.
Further functionalities are available in conjunction with the radar system:
• The Following Distance Indication (FDI) informs the driver visually about the distance to the car ahead.
• The Forward Collision Alert (FCA) provides a visual and an audible signal to warn the driver of an imminent collision with the car ahead.
• And the Collision Imminent Braking (CIB) automatically decelerates the vehicle if the risk of a collision is detected.
