For months, we’ve spotted the 2017 Opel Insignia and 2017 Vauxhall Insignia in prototype form, wearing bulky, plastic cladding to hide away its latest design. Now, Opel has ditched the plastic cladding and let curious eyes take a closer look at the upcoming sedan’s new looks.
Motor1 has the photos of the 2017 Insignia sitting among traffic sans some of its camouflage. What we can see is the front grille, and start to get a feel for the shape of the car. There’s also some thin LED lights peeking through the obscuring camouflage at the rear.
However, there’s still some bulky plastic up front at the bottom of the Insignia’s face, not to give away whatever design changes have occurred there. The overall shape its pretty sleek, and it seems evident the 2017 Insignia will be on track to receive a hatchback style trunk, rather than a traditional sedan profile. However, expect the 2018 Buick Regal to keep its standard trunk style.
The 2017 Opel-Vauxhall Insignia is reportedly set to debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show this September, while the 2018 Buick Regal holds off for a while longer.
