The next-generation Buick Regal has spotted testing on U.S. roads and wears a few different styling cues than its Opel-Vauxhall cousin, including the winged, front grille, which has a darker hue akin to the 2017 Buick LaCrosse.
The biggest change is the overall profile of the vehicle from Opel to Buick. The Buick keeps a more traditional C-pillar with an elegant, sloping roofline, whereas the Opel-Vauxhall has a much more fastback look. This is evident in the spy shots placed side-by-side. Both cars look nearly identical from the front clip to the B-pillar, however.
It’s possible to expect the Opel Insignia to debut later this year, with the 2017 Buick Regal to follow before a 2017 introduction. Meanwhile, the Holden Commodore will receive either the Buick or Opel look to mark a 2018 model year for the sedan.
