Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

This is the new Vauxhall Insignia, also known as the Opel Insignia, the same car that GM sells in the US as the Buick Regal.

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.

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