Opel, who plans to make a full scale entry into the GCC show off their Cascada and the new Insignia at the 2013 Dubai Motor Show alongside the Corsa, Astra, Meriva, ZafiraTourer, the entire OPC line-up and the all new Opel Adam.
Opel Cascada, the new mid-size convertible, was one of the star attractions from the brand. The Cascada comes with a super-rigid body and adaptive mechatronic FlexRide chassis system for a smooth ride. The Cascada will arrive in the UAE by mid-2014. There’s no official wording on the engine yet, but it could be powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged engine.
The Insignia model lineup was also shown off at the Dubai Motor Show. The highlight of the new Insignia was the incorporation of the newest generation infotainment system and the addition of the new 1.6-litre turbocharged engine alongside the pre-existing 2.0-litre and the 2.8-litre OPC turbocharged variants. The new Insignia is currently available across the showrooms in UAE for purchase.
Also on show were cars like the Opel Adam and the Opel Corsa OPC, both of which will only show up here as 2015 models next year, according to show-stand reps.
