    Who knows whether the Insignia and 508 can co-exist?
    Yes, it has already been suggested in my local paper that there is going to be competition across all segments made even more likely now that FCA have joined the party.

    There are bound to be winners and losers. One point worth noting is that Carlos Tavares, CEO at PSA, used to be Number 2 at Renault when they were working on the alliance with Nissan and Mitsubishi. Clearly Renault have been calling the shots in that Alliance, and the same may happen to Opel/Vauxhall and FCA with PSA in charge.

    Latest news of 2020 facelift: https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/vauxha...-tech-for-2020
    To me, the grille looks very similar, don't see any more chrome than existing apart from the grille surround (which I think is already on the VX line and above), reversing camera with cross traffic warning was already available as an option (my 2018 has it), and it's not clear whether the 'new' LED headlamps will be across the full range. Still, at least they've copied @marko301 's twin exhaust fake tail pipe look (which, by the way, I think looks great). The door mirrors also seem to be black, but again not sure if this is across the range.

    The lights won't be across the range...they'll be Elite spec and paid option only like always. The twin pipe trim was already on the grand tourer when it had the vx line trim so all they've done there is incorporate it into the hatch spec.

    Changes are nice but not overly leaving the Insignia B pre facelift behind. I wonder if it's gonna have the PSA version of OnStar...

    Whilst I like the idea of door mirror indicators, they are very vulnerable to damage, especially on a car as wide as an Insignia
