The updated Opel Insignia Sport Tourer has been caught cold-weather testing in Europe. This camouflaged Insignia gives us a sneak peek at what the Buick Regal's facelift will look like, as well as what a Buick Regal station wagon might look like.
Like the sedan we saw testing recently, this Insignia wagon looks close to production ready. Up front it sports attractive new headlights with cat ear LED DRLs, a reworked grille, and a new front valance.  In back the Insignia Sports Tourer has new LED taillights, and a new bumper with what looks like exhaust cut-outs – possibly hinting at a performance version of the Opel wagon. As in the sedan, a camouflaged chrome trim piece links both taillights.
The updated Opel Insignia will likely be unveiled sometime this year, likely at either the Geneva or Frankfurt motor shows. An updated Buick Regal sedan will probably follow soon after that, early next year. While a Buick Regal wagon (Regal Roadmaster has a nice ring to it, no?) doesn't seem to be in the cards, it could help the automaker take over the niche in the United States. Does the brand need a station wagon? Should the Opel Insignia Sport Tourer come to the U.S. as a Buick? Let us know in the comments below.
