Thankfully, General Motors will be importing the Opel Insignia and rebadging (and impressively restyling) it as a Buick Regal. The Regal GS Concept is an attractive sporting edition. Wouldn’t a wagon version be a wonderful turn of events? You know, one of those wagons the auto enthusiast media cries for but then nobody even considers buying? Yeah, that’d be really nice.
Imagine this Opel Insignia Sports Tourer with the 2011 Buick Regal’s front fascia. Now add a roof rack for rugged American individualists. You’ve got yourself a sportyish turbocharged 4-cylinder wagon from a formerly venerable domestic automaker. Praise be.
The Opel Insignia Sports Tourer has been on sale in Europe for nearly a year. In the UK, the very same car is a Vauxhall. In America, were the Insignia Sports Tourer ever to arrive as a Buick Regal, it’d likely use the nomenclature from Cadillac’s extended-roof CTS: Sport Wagon.
