The US automaker is the last one to reveal its versions of the Opel Insignia Grand Sport sedan and Sports Tourer estate – wrapped inside the body of the newest generation Regal in the United States.
This would be the first time since way back in the 1990s the brand is offering a station wagon on the American market, and according to the latest rumors off the mill the marque will cease the opportunity to showcase them in front of the worldwide audience of the New York Auto Show. In addition, the company might present the models in advance at General Motors’ Warren Technical Center as soon as April 4. The second generation Insignia comes to Europe with a blend of style and utility no matter the body choice – and we’re expecting the design changes to be minor for the switch to the Buick badge.
In Europe, the Insignia engine array includes a 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 138 horsepower (103 kilowatts) or 164 hp (122 kW) and a 2.0-liter turbo packing 256 hp (191 kW). But the Australian Holden Commodore versions brings more American-inspired choices – such as a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 308 hp (230 kW). In addition, the US Buick model could use front- or torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, going by the name of Tourx, if we are to believe a recent Buick trademark filling.
