    Opel's Insignia lineup is about to be updated, as evidenced by the recent sighting of only partially concealed prototypes testing in the wild. The particular tester is for the Insignia's Sports Tourer wagon body style, which we get here in jacked-up Buick Regal TourX soft-roader form. We also get the regular Insignia Grand Sport as our Buick Regal Sportback, and this version is also out testing in updated form. The current Opel Insignia was only introduced in 2017 so to see engineers testing an updated version so soon is unusual. The reason for the quick facelift is to implement a new design...

    2018 Buick Regal GS first drive review: six appeal

    The 2018 Buick Regal GS wears lots of letters and words on its flanks and in its cabin. Two you won’t find? “Gran Sport.” That moniker’s a relic of an era when rear-drive Buicks prowled the roads, leaded fuel their Muscle Milk. Today’s Buicks lean heavily on recently...
