    2017 Opel Insignia: First picture of the new IntelliLux LED Matrix Light

    As expected, new Insignia gets an upgraded IntelliLux LED matrix light with 32 pixels, instead of the 16 on the Astra. And that's how it looks like:




    The layout mimics the 2013 Monza Concept.

    Seriously, even after so many spy shots and videos, I have no idea how the new Insignia will look like.

    I'm also keen to know, if the new 1.5 turbo will replace the 1.6 turbo or only the 170hp version. Maybe something like this: new 1.5t/165hp < 1.6t/200hp < new 2.0t/250hp?

    Are these two new engines shared with the Malibu?

    Re: 2017 Opel Insignia: First picture of the new IntelliLux LED Matrix Light

    I love the general tech of these headlights but I hate this new trend of headlights angling up toward the grill instead of down.

    Those would help make a Buick look pretty good.

    Time for NHSTA to get its act together and approve this tech for the US.

    I wonder if this tech would pass IIHS's recent headlight scrutiny?

    Good question. The LED is merely the light source. The lens & housing direct the light.

    It looks like the front end is going to be Avista inspired.

    Buick must offer this on the new Avenier trim (pending U.S. approval of the system)

    The new Regal is starting to look like it might be quite an improvement over the current car.

    Now Buick needs to get the segment positioning right to generate the needed volume to re-establish the Regal in the U.S. market - still not too late to go with the Insignia name....

    The key model will be the Sports Tourer (Wagon) and Buick really needs is the Country Tourer ("Outback").
