Innovative features in the new Opel Insignia are designed to increase safety and comfort as well as enhance driving excitement. The Insignia offers leading technology in driver assistance systems. Moreover, the latest generation of lighting provides nine different light beam settings to help drivers adapt to diverse driving conditions.

Following the unique knowledge acquired since the summer 2003 when the first generation Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL) was introduced on the Signum, Opel now presents in the Insignia, the latest generation AFL system with powerful bi-xenon headlamps. Using sophisticated algorithms developed in Rüsselsheim, the light beam distribution of the headlamps automatically adjusts to the road profile and prevailing visibility conditions. The Opel Insignia offers nine light beam settings -- town, traffic-restricted road, country, highway, adverse weather, static cornering, dynamic curve, high beam and daytime running light - increasing visibility and making driving safer.
