Buick Regal Tour X wagon appears in US emissions certifications








The Tour X will presumably match the Opel Insignia Sports Tourer available in Europe.
All but confirming persistent rumors, the Buick Regal Tour X has appeared in US emissions certifications.





A California Air Resources Board document spotted by Motor1 lists the Regal wagon among several 2018-model-year vehicles that will be powered by General Motors' turbocharged 2.0-liter engine.

The certification suggests the Tour X will be available with either an eight- or nine-speed transmission and standard all-wheel drive.

GM already offers a wagon in Europe based on the Regal's Opel-badged sibling, the Insignia. Rumors have suggested the latest-generation Opel Insignia Sports Tourer will be headed to US showrooms, likely with few aesthetic tweaks aside from a new grille.

If the US-bound wagon's 2.0-liter engine specs match the current Regal Turbo sedan, drivers can expect 259 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

The Tour X is presumably on track to land in showrooms sometime this year.

Holy Crap, The 2017 Buick Regal Is Actually A Hatchback And A Wagon





The 2017 Buick Regal will actually be sold as either a hatchback sedan or as a wagon. GM was serious. It’s beautiful. It’s gorgeous. It has optional all-wheel-drive. It is the blessed Buick of the long-forgotten myths and legends, here to remind us it is not a Buick.

Man oh man, let’s talk about the wagon. The heckin’ Regal wagon! It’s already been labeled as a “true crossover” and also as a “station wagon,” (and revealed at a GM party earlier today), and it does adopt that slightly silly “tough” grey cladding around the wheels like some other wagons on the market, but it’s definitely a Buick Regal wagon! And it is pretty.
Called the Regal TourX, the wagon is 0.6 inches taller that he Regal hatchback, which is officially dubbed the Regal Sportback. Both the TourX and Sportback models get the same turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower.
The front-wheel-drive Sportback option gets 260 lb-ft of torque while the all-wheel-drive models get 295 lb-ft, which is standard on the TourX and optional on the Sportback. The front-wheel-drive Sportback gets a 9-speed automatic transmission, while the rest of the lineup is stuck with an 8-speed.
The Regal Sportback is claimed to be 200 pounds lighter than the outgoing Regal, and comes with a wave of new features. The most impressive feature is a new pedestrian-protection system that can detect an impact with a person at speeds between 16 and 30 mph. If an impact is detected, the hood pops up four inches to help cushion the blow of you hitting somebody, so that’s nice.




A seven-inch infotainment screen with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay is standard, and an eight-inch is optional.






If you’re shopping for a Subaru Outback, Golf Alltrack, or heck!, even an BMW 3 Series or Volvo V60, go ahead and take a patient gander at the new pretty Buick Regal. Pricing will be announced later this year.

It would look better if they didn't have that black trim around the bottom of the wagon.

We need more wagons, I'm okay with it.

Although it looks like a new 3 series and V60 got together and had a child.

2018 Buick Regal Sportback: Bye Bye, Sedan; Hello, Hatchback

Buick takes aim at more luxurious prey.



Buick’s new Regal and the Audi A4 seem set on a collision course. It has been a long time—maybe not ever—since we could have typed any sentence that buoyed a Buick into the same conversation as Audi, but the all-new 2018 Regal works hard to ensure this is no false equivalence. For proof, check out the slick new body, classy interior, and sporty intent.

That’s a Buick!

We’re zeroing in on the potential Buick-on-Audi showdown because, on vanity alone, the two are the most visually desirable sedans in each other’s orbit. The 2018 Regal outsexes the dowdy Acura TLX and the somewhat awkward-looking Lincoln MKZ. We haven’t seen the upcoming S60 replacement, which, given Volvo’s recent design renaissance, could be quite a looker, but the current one borders on innocuous. This all leaves the Regal on an aspirational trajectory to the A4’s constellation, considering that the Audi (which also competes with the rear-drive BMW 3-series and the Mercedes-Benz C-class) has humbler front-drive-based roots similar to the Buick’s.

Maybe we should specify which A4 the Buick is taking aim at. The Sportback in the new Regal’s name is a nod to its large liftgate that takes the place of a traditional trunk. This means the Regal is technically a hatchback, albeit one that mimics a sedan in a way that’s reminiscent of the A4-based A5 Sportback, which coincidentally is headed for the U.S. market later this year for the first time. Boldly, Buick won’t offer a sedan at all, although it will chase another A4 variant, the lifted Allroad station wagon, with the Regal TourX.

By now everyone should be accustomed to Buicks that appeal to sub-octogenarians, so the Regal’s sleek look should come as no great surprise. Its subtly furrowed headlights, clean new winged grille motif, and delicate creases defining shoulder lines that run from behind each front wheel to the trunk are a vast improvement over the somewhat lumpy current model. And the four-door’s wheelbase has grown 3.6 inches to 111.4, while its overall length swells by 2.7 inches, shrinking the front and rear overhangs and improving the Regal’s proportions.
The lengthened wheelbase also pays dividends inside, where the new Regal’s back seat is more human-friendly than its predecessor’s relatively tight quarters. Buick fits a 60/40 split-folding rear seat as standard, although a 40/20/40 bench is optional for those who must have more flexibility. Unfortunately, when folded, the rear seatbacks sit higher than the cargo floor, creating a slight lip that prevents cargo from being slid in one go from the bumper all the way to the back of the front seats. The space in back is still markedly more usable than any similarly sized sedan’s trunk, and Buick claims that with the seats folded, there is 61 cubic feet of cargo space. Not to mention the flexibility afforded by the wide liftgate opening.



Beyond its bootylicious surprise, the Regal steps up the rest of its interior game big time for 2018. Inside, muted design is married to upscale materials and color schemes that put the outgoing car to shame. Higher trim levels feature a glossy 8.0-inch IntelliLink touchscreen that’s integrated better into the cabin’s aesthetic than are similar displays in other General Motors products. A 7.0-inch touchscreen with a similar menu structure is standard. Keeping up with the industry Joneses, Buick upgrades the Regal’s options sheet with the latest active-safety features such as automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.
At this point, our only major complaints about the interior are that the push-button starter is sort of hidden behind the steering wheel’s rim, and the air-conditioning controls are mounted slightly too low on the dashboard, just ahead of the shift lever, to be easily reached. Also, although nice, the cabin doesn’t quite rise to the exterior styling’s level, nor does it make a compelling design statement the way Audi’s A4 screams “modernism” or Benz’s C-class shouts “classy!”
Anglo-Saxon, Again

As it was before, the Regal is more or less a rebadged Opel Insignia, a German sedan sold in Europe. Even so, the Regal has a sibling local to the United States: Chevrolet’s latest Malibu. The two share some underpinnings and their wheelbase dimensions, and just as the Malibu lost a lot of weight in its most recent redesign, so, too, does the Regal. Buick says the Sportback’s curb weight—ranging from about 3750 pounds to 3900 pounds—is roughly 200 pounds less than that of comparable outgoing Regals. Among the key differences that set apart the Opel/Buick version of the platform is a rear end massaged to accommodate all-wheel drive. (In an effort to minimize the front-drive Malibu’s weight, Chevrolet designed a different rear end and suspension that cannot accept all-wheel drive.) Buick previously offered all-wheel drive on the Regal, both in its normal and sporty GS forms, so it makes a return, albeit with a twist: A rear-axle torque-vectoring function is added.



Using the same GKN Twinster clutched rear axle as Ford’s Focus RS hot hatch, various Land Rover products, and Lincoln’s sportiest MKZ variant, the all-wheel-drive Regal’s nasty-weather capabilities may come with more athleticism thanks to its ability to direct torque to individual rear wheels to help power through corners. Every all-wheel-drive Regal—including the wagon—will have the feature. Another competitor with a similar torque-vectoring system is Acura’s TLX with SH-AWD. On the Regal Sportback, all-wheel drive is optional on the top three trim levels (Preferred, Preferred II, and Essence), leaving the base model as front-drive only.
Curiously, front-wheel-drive Regals launch with a nine-speed automatic transmission while all-wheel-drive versions employ an eight-speed automatic. We’re told that the nine-speed will be phased into AWD versions later. The good news is that every Regal, whether Sportback or TourX, will ship with a 250-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four. That’s just 2 ponies short of the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the A4 and A5 Sportback although not as much as the optional 290-hp V-6 in the Acura TLX. Front-wheel-drive Regals’ engines make less torque than their front-drive counterparts (260 lb-ft instead of 295) in a bid to keep torque steer to a minimum.



Will the new Regal have what it takes to challenge Audi in the cities and suburbs of America in real life—not just on paper? That assessment will need to wait until we can drive one for ourselves later this year and also once the Regal goes on sale and we receive pricing and equipment details. More likely, the Regal and the A4 and A5 Sportback are headed for a tangential showdown on the sales charts, with another foe lurking in the wings in the form of Volkswagen’s handsome and equally swoopy 2018 Arteon sedan. Buick is quick to point out that the new Regal inherits multiple years of steady sales from its aging predecessor, just like the new-last-year Audi A4, and that the Buick brand overall outsold Audi in the U.S. in 2016. Meanwhile, other entry-luxury efforts such as the TLX, MKZ, and S60 have posted sales declines over the past couple of years.
Sales are one thing. Shattering the invisible ceiling separating Buick from the likes of BMW, Jaguar, and Mercedes is another. Breaking through is something Buick might take time to achieve, but on first inspection this new Regal nudges the brand closer to the glass.

Next Buick Regal GS Likely Will Mix 300-HP-Plus V-6 with Torque-Vectoring AWD




Speaking to sources at Buick earlier in April, during the reveal of the 2018 Regal Sportback and Regal TourX wagon, we learned that the brand plans to re-up the sporty GS model in the new Regal lineup. Buick isn’t saying when we might expect the hotter Regal variant to show up—the Sportback and TourX are due out by the end of 2017—but thanks to some sleuthing by The Truth about Cars (and highlighted by Road & Track), we might have an idea of what to expect from the forthcoming GS.
To preface this news, we should point out that the outgoing Regal GS married a sportified chassis with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The package was good for 259 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, numbers that barely edge out the 2018 Regal’s standard turbo four, with 250 ponies. So what does Buick have planned for the next GS? According to The Truth about Cars, a premature slice of metadata from Buick’s Canada-market website (and a posting on the live site that has since been taken down) suggests the GS will get a 3.6-liter V-6 engine and a version of the regular Regal’s torque-vectoring all-wheel drive.
A V-6 is one way to one-up the turbocharged four-cylinder in the 2018 Regal Sportback, not to mention line up better against Acura’s six-cylinder TLX (which also offers torque-vectoring AWD). General Motors has a variety of 3.6-liter V-6s to choose from—a 310-hp version powers the larger Buick LaCrosse, for example—but in other configurations the engine can produce 335 ponies. In any case, a power figure north of 300 is guaranteed—again, Buick has to justify the GS’s existence with more output than it sells in ordinary Regals.

A peek at global versions of the new Regal bolsters the case that the next GS is going V-6. The Australia-market Holden Commodore, which has switched from a rear-drive platform to the same underpinnings as the 2018 Regal (and the Europe-market Opel Insignia) has essentially the same V-6 powertrain described of the GS. But wait, couldn’t Buick turbocharge the V-6? It could—a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V-6 exists within GM—but according to a report in Motoring.au, turbos don’t fit in the Commodore’s engine bay with the V-6. That means no turbos for either the Commodore or our Regal GS. Too bad, but even with slightly more than 300 horsepower, the new Regal GS (which would come only in Sportback form, not the wagonesque TourX body style) should be plenty entertaining given the new model’s weight loss relative to the old version.

2019 Buick Regal GS Sportback spy shots


a larger, more sophisticated Regal for 2018. The car comes in liftback (Regal Sportback) and wagon (Regal TourX) body styles in the United States, but skips the more traditional notchback sedan shape offered in China.
Also missing is a sporty GS variant, though one is coming. Our latest spy shots show the GS version of the Regal Sportback out testing.
We know this is the Regal GS Sportback because of the more aggressive front bumper design, subtle aero kit, enlarged wheels, and square-shaped exhaust tips at the rear. Leaked shots of the Chinese-market Regal GS sedan hint at what’s to come.

Leaked images of Chinese Buick Regal GS

What isn’t so clear is what actually is lurking under the hood. Information that briefly appeared on Buick’s Canadian website in April suggested that the Regal GS will come with a 3.6-liter V-6 and all-wheel drive. This same setup will be offered in the Regal’s corporate cousin destined for the Australian market, the



In the Commodore, the V-6 is set to deliver 308 horsepower and be mated to a 9-speed automatic. It’s possible we’ll see a few more horses for the Regal GS. The outgoing model draws 259 hp from a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4.
Look for a debut late this year or early next. Sadly, only the Regal Sportback is expected to receive the GS treatment in the U.S. That means you can forget about a modern Buick Sport Wagon.

I know it's silly, but the Buick badging kills it for me.

Spied: 2019 Buick Regal GS Sportback














Buick's higher-tune Sportback has been spotted in the wild.
The enthusiast-oriented variant of Buick's Regal Sportback was spotted testing in Michigan, giving us a hint at what will likely be the final U.S. design for the sportier five-door.



The Chinese version of the hopped-up Regal was leaked back in April, and from what we can tell, not much will be different. Despite the extensive camouflage wrapping, we can see this car shares the leaked Chinese model's aggressive front bumper and fog light designs and its integrated exhaust finishers.

There's also an obvious difference: This mule has a different wheel design featuring exaggerated split spokes, reminding us a bit of the design of the outgoing model's wheel, where the Chinese model's is a bit more reminiscent of some of Volkswagen's wheel designs.

Another difference lurks beneath the hood, thanks to information gleaned from another leak earlier this year. A blurb mentioning the Buick Regal GS Sportback model was spotted on the company's web site and quickly removed. That tidbit revealed that the North American model will likely be powered by GM's 3.6L V6 rather than another turbocharged four-cylinder.

We expect front- and all-wheel-drive models to be available, but don't hold out hope for a manual transmission on either.

The 2018 Buick Regal TourX Wagon Will Start Under $30,000 And Have Decent Power





The 2017 Buick Regal TourX gives us some hope for the future of wagons, and today it brings even more good news. Buick says the car will come standard with a 250 horsepower turbo motor, all-wheel-drive, and a starting price that seriously undercuts other luxury wagons.

Our friends over at CarsDirect.com got the inside scoop, and they report that the 2018 Regal TourX 1SV will start at $29,995, including the destination fee. Buick just barely skated under $30,000. The base model comes with some nice equipment, including 18-inch aluminum wheels, active noise cancellation, push-button start, heated side mirrors, a universal home remote and more.

Now here is the bad news, according to CarsDirect:
However, it’s a good bet that the $33,575 TourX Preferred 1SB will probably be the one you end up seeing stocked at dealers. That’s because models like the 1SV tend to be used for advertising and are almost always excluded from promotions as is the case with nearly every other Buick.
Here’s is where Buick gets a little tricky with the pricing. The extra $3,580 for the Preferred 1SB only adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather-wrapped steering wheel and a power driver’s seat with lumbar support. However, you do get a full spectrum of paint colors to choose from. Buyers who opt for the base car only get black, white, or silver options. The 1SB also allows you to add additional packages, such as the $1,240 Driver Confidence Package and/or a panoramic roof for $1,200.







What you don’t get at this price on a “luxury car” is leather seats. To feel that sweet cow hide under your butt, you need to step up to the TourX Essence 1SL at $35,945 which also adds an 8-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If you add some advanced safety features—such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist and pedestrian detection—your TourX will top out at $38,860.
The extra cash you plop down for a higher trim TourX all go towards creature comforts. Thats because all TourX trims get the same 2.0-liter turbo rated at 250 HP with 265 lb-ft of torque paired to an 8-speed automatic and standard all-wheel drive.

The Regal TourX will give you a lot more equipment for a much lower price when compared with other luxury wagons like the Volvo V60, Audi Allroad, and BMW 328xi, but potential buyers can also get popular options such as leather and advanced safety tech for a bit less by opting for a Subaru or Volkswagen.






However, car shoppers can probably expect Buick to offer some pretty solid incentives and rebates to make the TourX a solid value proposition.

2018 Buick Regal TourX priced below $30,000



















Buick’s new wagon, the 2018 Regal TourX will come with an MSRP of $29,995 including delivery charges as reported by CarsDirect earlier this week. Its base model or the 1SV trim is set to be the more affordable choice between other expensive brands like Audi’s A4 Allroad, the Volvo Cross Country wagon, Subaru Outback or even Volkswagen’s Golf Alltrack wagon model. Currently, the pricing for some of these wagons start at $45,475 for Audi and $37,145- $42,696 for the Volvo.

The new base model, including the entire Regal TourX range, will pack a standard 250hp and 265lb-ft of torque 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and all- wheel- drive layout. All versions will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission while the set of 18-inch wheels, active noise cancellation and push start button have also been included in the setup.
For the price of $33,575 (or an additional $3,850), Buick offers the Regal TourX Preferred 1SB with more color options aside from the standard silver, white and black body paints. Those come in addition to the door sill plates, power driver’s seat, leather wrapped steering wheel and auto-dimming rearview mirror that are all part of the package.
A little extra $1,200 can get you a panoramic moonroof while another $1,240 will include a suite of driver’s assistance features such as rear park assist, cross traffic alert and blind spot monitoring.
At $35,945, the TourX Essence 1SL has been already equipped with dual zone auto climate control, bigger touch screen monitor (with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration) and standard leather upholstery. Also for a total of $38,860, the Regal TourX Essence has been added with adaptive cruise control and other safety features. The list consists of pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist and forward collision alert w/ automatic emergency braking just to name a few.
The TourX sets a new standard for luxury wagons as it comes with more affordable starting price unlike other competing brands. With up to 73.5 cubic feet of cargo space (on folded seats), Buick is also trying to entice buyers into choosing the TourX over Volkswagen and Subaru wagons. Given that not all Regals come cheap, the TourX Preferred 1SB is still affordable and packs a lot of features.
Moreover, Buick ditches the old sedan body style over two new hatchback variants to include in the all-new Regal lineup. The Regal Sportback, with a starting price of $25,915, is cheaper by at least $2,000 than the previous sedan’s base variant. Its new trims include the Sportback Preferred II and Sportback Essence. Both hatchback and station wagon models will go on sale later this year.

They need to have the GS trim with this body style.

Buick Regal GS Shows Its Aggressive Face In New Pictures



@media(min-width: 300px) { .example_responsive_5 { width: 336px; height: 280px; text-align: center;} }
We're getting a better look at the Buick Regal GS as a couple of new photos have surfaced online.

Posted by Autowp, the images show the Chinese-spec model will feature an aggressive front fascia with a revised grille and larger air intakes that are surrounded by metallic accents.

The car has also been equipped with sportier side skirts and 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Continental tires. Drivers will also find continuously variable dampers and an upgraded braking system with red calipers.

The interior largely carries over but the Regal GS has a number of sporty touches including a flat-bottom steering wheel and alloy pedals. Other highlights include red contrast stitching and piano black trim on the center console.

Buick has been tight-lipped about the car but the automaker has already revealed it will have a "high-feature V6 engine" that produces an estimated 310 hp (231 kW). Documents posted by the California Air Resources Board confirmed the engine will be a 3.6-liter V6 that is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system.

There's no word on when the Regal GS will be introduced but it could happen relatively soon.

The 2018 Buick Regal GS Is The 310 HP Sporty Luxury Hatchback America Needs




Photo: Buick
The last time Buick launched a Regal GS, the brand wowed us all by offering a six-speed manual transmission. Now, for 2018, that option is gone, but there’s more power, more gears, a design that doesn’t look like a fancied-up Malibu, and most importantly a hatchback.
We heard rumors that the 2018 Regal GS would get a 310 horsepower V6 and an eight-speed auto. It turns out, the first part of those rumors is true: the engine, a 3.6-liter V6, does indeed make 310 ponies and also produces 282 lb-ft of torque.






That power, contrary to the second part of the whispering we heard, gets sent through a nine-automatic, which then moves that power through a standard all-wheel drive system with an “active twin clutch” rear differential.

Photo: Buick
Add unique front and rear fascias, Brembo brakes, a sport-tuned exhaust, 19-inch wheels, and Continuous Damping Control (which Buick says can “adjust suspension damping up to 500 times per second,”) and you may be able to wring a bit of that sweet sporty dynamism out of this new Regal.


Photo: Buick
On the inside, there’s heated, cooled and massaging “performance seats” with adjustable bolsters, a flat-bottom steering wheel, metal sporty pedals and an available head-up display.






So sure, the new $39,990 2018 Buick Regal GS Sportback doesn’t have a manual like the last one did (to be fair, Buick dropped that in 2015), and even if it does have 51 more horsepower, it’s still less powr than the cheaper Ford Fusion Sport.
But if this thing drives as well as it looks, maybe there’s still hope in this world for the brand still known for its fluffy burgundy interiors.

The previous gen Regal GS was much better looking IMO. Also no turbo no bueno.

I'd much rather have the turbo 4 than the V6. Bad move.

Wagons ho! Opel Insignia GSi Sports Tourer revealed









Image 1 / 7


















Hot wagons are a rarity in the United States but over in Europe they’re all the rage, outselling their sedan equivalents in many cases.
Opel will use this week’s 2017 Frankfurt auto show to introduce its latest high-performance wagon, the Insignia GSi.
We’ve already seen the car in fastback sedan form, which we’re getting as the 2018 Buick Regal GS, but a wagon option, which Opel refers to as a Sports Tourer, will also be offered.

General Motors’ Australian subsidiary Holden will get its own version of the Regal GS dubbed the Commodore VXR, and like the Insignia GSi the Commodore VXR will also be offered in both fastback and wagon body styles.
Sadly, we’re stuck with the fastback only. That sucks because a Regal GS wagon would be a cool addition to Buick’s lineup. Heck, it would have come with a handy 58.8 cubic feet of storage. That said, the only buyers would likely be a handful of auto journos and perhaps some remaining Buick Sport Wagon fans.
There’s more we miss out on. The Insignia GSi has two engine options to choose from, both mated to an 8-speed automatic. The standard option is 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that delivers 256 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. A 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel is also on offer, good for 206 hp and 354 lb-ft. The gas engine is the quicker option, enabling 0-62 mph acceleration in 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 152 mph.

This contrasts with the Buick and Holden versions of the car which both pack a 310-hp 3.6-liter V-6 and 9-speed auto.
All versions of the car benefit from an impressive chassis, albeit one derived from a front-wheel-drive setup. Drive is to all four wheels via GM’s twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system which can direct torque between each axle and between each of the rear wheels. The system was honed on the Nürburgring and works together with lowered springs, adjustable dampers, and 20-inch wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires to shore up the handling. The brakes come from Brembo.
Opel will present the Insignia GSi Sports Tourer at the Frankfurt auto show which starts on Tuesday. For more on the show, head to our dedicated hub.

Four-Door Opel Insignia GSi Looking Mighty Good In Frankfurt





With a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol unit putting down decent numbers, Opel's latest Passat/Mondeo rival is definitely dressed to impress in GSi form.

Unveiled back in July, the Insignia GSi makes use of 260 PS (252 HP) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque, as well as less overall weight than the older OPC version, with approximately 160 kg (353 kg) in its favor.

It will also lap the Nurburgring quicker than the OPC, despite being down on power by some 69 horses. In other words, it's a strong product that, at least on paper, looks like a significant upgrade over previous fast Insignias.

Speaking of how it looks, this particular gray model on display at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show has a dark, aggressive theme going for it, which some people tend to like, as opposed to getting the car in red, orange or other bright colors.

The sporty front and rear bumpers, together with the large 20" easily communicate that this isn't your regular, everyday Insignia, and with the help of bigger brakes and adaptive dampers, getting it out on the road should be quite an interesting experience - especially when you've got all-wheel drive with torque vectoring.

The new Opel Insignia GSi will be available to order in Germany halfway through next month.

We'll see the Insignia as the 2018 Buick Regal in the States with the sports version being the GS that comes with a 310hp 3.6-liter V6.
