    2017 Buick Regal Spied



    The next Opel Insignia, sold as the Buick Regal in the U.S., has been caught testing in new spy photos.

    As we can see from the body lines, the Regal is moving to a hatchback five-door body style with the current four-door sedan version likely to be cancelled. A station wagon variant is expected to join the lineup about six months after the car launches, but U.S. availability is unknown at this point.

    Overall the wheelbase in expected to be stretched by about 10 cm, though the car should be about 440 lbs lighter than the current model.

    A 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine will likely be the 2017 Buick Regal’s base engine, while a more powerful option will be available, though the specific engine remains a mystery.

    Styling will be heavily influenced by the Monza Concept which was shown at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. A large digital dashboard design that was previewed by the concept is also expected to make its way into the production version along with head-up display and OnStar 4G LTE Wifi.

    The redesigned 2017 Buick Regal will likely hit the market in late 2016 as a 2017 model year.

    If there is a next-gen Regal in the US, it should be a coupe, at least as an option.

    The current sedan is very nice but is unnecessary with the Verano and Lacrosse.
    Drives a 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe and a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.

    In the past, I've had a 5th gen Camaro, a CTS sedan and coupe, two 3rd gen Firebird Formulas, a convertible 4th gen Trans Am, a Reatta, a couple of Monte Carlos, an Avenger coupe, a couple of Cavalier hatchbacks, a Saturn SC1, and a Cherokee.

    A 1.5 Turbo 4?...Oh dear this car will be less of a buy than the current one is for me.

    Is Buick supposed to be a near luxury brand or barely there economy luxury brand.

    Baby Panamera?

    I applaud GM if they bring it here, I've been screaming for differentiation between the brands (beyond the badges) for years.

    Is it moving to a hatch style? Or are they just testing the "notch-back" version like the current car has?

    Re: 2017 Buick Regal Spied

    My understanding is this will ride on the same platform as the new Malibu.
    I think this car is begging for a Voltec version. Especially the wagon. Considering the Malibu has a Volt derived hybrid system it should be doable.
    And if they build it in Oshawa I will be standing at my local Buick dealer with a check in my hand.

    It appears the rumors of an Alpha based next gen Regal were wrong. Too bad, a RWD Regal next to the Avenir (hoping that is still an option) would have looked good in the showroom.

    Yeshsh...I see...

    (NOTE TO SELF: When lease is up in 2018, lease SOMETHING ELSE...ANYthing else!)

    I mean unless they make a separate Grand National (read: RWD/AWD)! At least the current Regal has decent proportions! HELL, I could get a 2016 MALIBU and probably do better than THAT!!!!

    I know, I know...it's a SPY shot with LOTS of camouflage but you CAN'T hide the HIDEOUS looking proportions with CAMOUFLAGE!
