Earlier this month, Opel took to the internet to unveil the highly anticipated Insignia Grand Sport. The vehicle, spearheaded by Opel, will travel across the globe and be graced by four separate badges as the 2018 Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport, 2018 Buick Regal, 2018 Holden Commodore and, of course, the Opel Insignia Grand Sport.
So, now that we’ve had a few weeks to digest everything we know, we’re here to ask if the 2018 Insignia Grand Sport is hot or not.
We’ll focus on the Opel badge here, simply because the only thing separating the Opel from its Vauxhall, Holden and eventually Buick cousins is a simple badge. However, do see our rendering of the 2018 Buick Regal below for reference.
The 2018 Insignia Grand Sport sits on General Motors’ E2XX platform, meaning the vehicle has been lengthened significantly over the outgoing Insignia. In the process, it wears sweeping, sharper lines. We do see a lot of different vehicles here, including Mazda 6 (not a bad thing), Nissan Maxima (also not a bad thing) and our staff has even remarked on the wheels looking similar to a BMW i8.
While we haven’t seen the 2018 Insignia Grand Sport in person, we do think it has some presence from the photos the brand has supplied, and we think Opel has succeeded in incorporating the latest design motif from the Opel Monza concept.
But, we turn to you now. Has Opel designed a knockout, or is the design language a dud? Let us know in the poll down below.
