Here we have some of the best footage yet of not only the new 2017 Opel-Vauxhall Insignia, but also the imminent performance variant: the Insignia OPC for Europe, the VXR for the United Kingdom. This is also a good indication of what we may see from a next-generation, 2018 Buick Regal GS.
As for styling, it’s still covered up pretty well. We see the same basic shape and plastic cladding hiding the true design of the car. But those multi-spoke wheels and big brakes mean business.
Foremost, we can also hear the car as it whips around the ‘Ring, rifling through gears through an automatic gearbox. It’s evident there is not a turbocharged four-cylinder under the hood, but almost certainly a boosted V6 of sorts.
General Motors has a few turbocharged V6s it could shove under the bonnet, but it remains to be seen what will make the final cut when the 2017 Insignia is revealed in Paris this coming September.
