Leveraged Opel Insignia GSi Facelift

Opel Insignia realised a month ago, however GSI as the flagship got updated engine and transmission.

The turbocharged fuel engine with 2.0-liters displacement powered with 230 hp or 196kW is connected to 9-speed automatic AWD transmission, which in its turn comes with torque vectoring. What is more Insignia GSi gets a new electro-hydraulic brake booster, as well as a FlexRide mechatronic suspension setup.

Changes for Honda Civic Type R

The mid-cycle facelift comes along with quite a few mechanical changes as Honda has installed newly developed two-piece brake rotors coupled to updated brake pads designed to reduce fade and boost the stopping power at high speeds. In addition, the 2020 Civic Type R has a modified suspension with optimized dampers increasing comfort during normal driving.

Honda’s engineers have developed a new set of rear bushings that are stiffer than before to improve grip, while the front suspension has been modified to make the steering feel more direct by reducing friction.
