2017 Opel Insignia Exclusive pack announced – Commodore potential?

The 2018 Holden Commodore’s European progenitor, the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia, will be available with a premium brand-style personalisation program dubbed ‘Exclusive’.

The choice of Insignia as the first ambassador of the Exclusive range suggests that this could be a response to Ford of Europe’s Vignale range. It will also be rolled out to other vehicles such as Astra in due course.

Exclusive packages are based on top of the line variants, with the Insignia scoring the optional matrix LED headlamps, touch-screen and solar heat-absorbing glass, as well as a ‘black pack’ that adds high-gloss black trim to the grille and window sills.

Like BMW’s Individual program, an unlimited range of colours will become available where customers can choose from ‘favourite lipstick’ or ‘daughter’s eye colour’ as examples. Initially an extra palate of 15 new hues are available, including this turquoise shade featured on this show car. New interior trim options will be available too.

The Exclusive spec is available in Grand Sport hatch, Sports Tourer wagon and Country Tourer crossover. This new variant could potentially influence colour and interior options for the upcoming 2018 Commodore and Calais range when they land next year.
