The Buick Regal offers drivers an option within Buick’s lineup that’s a bit more sporty and stylish than its usual sophisticated, classy flavor, imbued with a distinct European vibe that’s inherited from its Europe-exclusive sibling, the Opel Insignia. When Opel took the wraps off its 2017 Insignia model, enthusiasts sighed at the sight of a wagon, prematurely resigning themselves to the fact that America rarely got wagon variants. However, there are whisperings of a Buick Regal Wagon coming stateside.
So what do we know of this wagon so far? The Opel Insignia Sports Tourer, as it’s called, was spotted cruising around Los Angeles recently. Powertrain options include a 4-cylinder or a V6 engine, with driver’s choice of either front- or all-wheel drive. Currently only an automatic transmission is offered. Not only is it 440 lbs lighter than previous generations, but it’s larger, offering up to 68 cubic feet of cargo space.
Currently, there’s no word on whether or not the Buick Regal Wagon has been confirmed, but to experts in the industry, it seems to be a sure thing. The Insignia is making its first real auto show debut in Geneva soon, so the Regal’s wagon model is expected to be revealed to the public sometime in the following months.
