How long will the Opel name plate be used? The GS looks good, but the basic white model looks like a Malibu twin to me. I love the first review: Well, it beats Ford.
Saw these the other day and was wondering when more reviews would go up. That first review, the reviewer seemed like a jerk. The negatives about the interior seemed unreasonable considering the price point.
I want the ability to choose my vehicle color like they mentioned... when can that come to the US?
The red one is a real beauty. I like that they got the crease on the doors going the right direction this time too .
I guess I was expecting more. The last gen GS /OPC was a far better looking car.
Technically it would be possible, because the NA Buick Regal and the Holden Commodore will be produced in the same plant as the Insignia, Rüsselsheim/Germany.I want the ability to choose my vehicle color like they mentioned... when can that come to the US?
But ..... the costumer behavior in NA ist very diffrent to Europe (dunno for Australia). Most time in Europe u order ur car like u want....and wait 6-8 weeks.
In NA u go to the dealer and look what is in storage... (dealer is order the color,interior & engine)
I tried all new Chevy Malibu with 2.0T last fall and was not impressed overall, I expect we will get the same powertrain here with 2018 Buick Regal.
Now seeing this car in first reviews and extended videos I can confirm that it looks very generic and bland. I had high hopes with weight reduction, rear seat space increase and lower stance but this Mazda 6 knock off exterior design is huge turn off for me.
I will give it another chance once it hits dealership showrooms, but with very little expectations.
Having spent some time behind the wheel of this new Insignia, unfortunately I have to admit that I sort of like it, but I definitely don't love it. It drives nice, but after a while somewhat it has this horrible generic feel to it.
I agree with the video review above: the interior looks very classy and modern, but unfortunately the materials used are not the best. There is quite a lot of GM generic switchgear that just feels cheap and nasty. This new car excitement disappears as soon as you touch the electric windows switches, or touch some of the interior plastics. Early pilots and pre-prods had the promise of upmarket BMW/Audi/Merc, but GM failed to deliver - it feels sort of sub-Passat.
Like I said before, it's a nice new Insignia, but it's definitely not a Commodore.
Things I like: LED matrix headlights, Bose sound system, front AGR seats are fantastic.
