    I would expect the side marker light to morph into the new ventiport. Looks better than the camouflaged testers seen so far. I actually think the Buick version has a nicer front end than the Opel, more balanced and upscale. The hood surfacing is a little plain, not as aggressive as it should be for a sportier model.

    Didn't we see a rendering similar up this already? With that said not bad looking...but thought there would be a bit more styled since it is a Buick.

    This would make for a pretty good-looking Regal. Not entirely liking the four-door coupe shape but altogether it's a nice looking design...

    I don't love the break in the C-pillar, as it borrows too much from Nissan IMO.

    It looks like a microwaved Nissan Maxima.

    I think the production car will look better than that.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    Looks like a Malibu with a different door-crease and a Buick grille.

    I hope so!

    That was my first impression, also. IMO, the current Regal is much better looking! I hate this squished catfish look!

    Those openings around the foglights are huuuuge. No way they're that fussy.

    C-pillar I could believe, à la Astra.

    I really like that huge foglight area!
