At the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, Opel unveiled the Monza Concept, a vehicle that showed a new design language which will be used on future models. According to Opel’s head designer Mark Adams, the first vehicle to be inspired by the Monza Concept will be the Insignia. In fact, according to Opel CEO Karl-Thomas Neuman, when we will see the new Insignia we will see the Monza.
This also means that the upcoming Buick Regal, which is a rebadged version of the Opel Insignia, will also resemble the Monza Concept when it comes to design.
Still, there are no details regarding the launch date of the future models, but several sources said that the new Buick Regal will arrive sometime in 2017.
In addition, the next-generation Opel Insignia/ Buick Regal will be more premium as General Motors wants to add polish to the brand.
Opel’s Insignia received a facelift last year and this means we will have to wait for the new model, which is expected to arrive in Europe a year earlier than the Buick Regal, in 2016.
