The 2017 Opel-Vauxhall Insignia is going to be a huge launch. Why? Because it will also (very likely) become the 2018 Holden Commodore and wear a Buick badge as the 2017 Regal in North American and China.
Once again, the 2017 Insignia has been spied testing via AutoEvolution, and the brands are keeping its design a closely-held secret still. We haven’t seen the camouflage of cladding change once since we spotted the all-new Insignia.
It still wears extra cladding around the doors to appear chunkier, and camouflage distorts the true styling underneath. But, this vehicle will not be chunky, not in the slightest.
It’s likely to ride on General Motors’ E2XX platform and accommodate a few extra inches to stretch its legs. In terms of weight, the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu is very good indicator as to what we can expect from the 2017 Insignia’s diet.
The 2017 Insignia will likely debut at the 2016 Frankfurt Motor Show in September with Buick and Holden debuts to follow after the fact.
