2017 Opel/Vauxhall Insignia: Bigger, lighter, will be 2018 Buick Regal in US

The second generation Opel/Vauxhall Insignia is bigger, lighter and sexier than the original, and will be sold in the States as the 2018 Buick Regal.


It will also be sold in Australia as the 2018 Holden Commodore.

Although the car is larger, lightweight materials have reduced the Insignia’s weight by 175kg (385 lb).

Engines and drivetrains have yet to be announced, although 2-liter turbo gas and diesel engines are tipped. The top end sports model will have AWD and torque vectoring.

Top end models will also have IntelliLux matrix LED headlamps, FlexRide suspension, adaptive cruise control, heads up display, lane keeping assistance, and an infotainment system with OnStar and 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

The Opel and Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport makes its official debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.
