Use of lightweight materials helped drop the Insignia's curb weight by more than 350 pounds in certain trims.

Under the hood lies a new eight-speed automatic transmission and a torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system.

LED headlights adorn the front end, and a new active aluminum hood should help mitigate injury in pedestrian collisions.

The interior features a head-up display, a screen in the gauge cluster and rear heated seats.

Safety equipment includes autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist, which are standard Buick offerings nowadays.

It's unclear when Buick will unveil the next Regal, but it's likely to happen after Geneva.
