If this is the direction Buick is headed, color me excited.
Well, isn't this a pretty sedan?
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.
If this is, in fact, the next Buick Regal, that's one hell of an update.
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.
The Vauxhall Insignia will make its grand debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
It's unclear when Buick will unveil the next Regal, but it's likely to happen after Geneva.
