Big changes in store for the Buick Re­gal:

The Hamilton Spectator - - WHEELS -

The Sleuth’s sources claim that the next-gen­er­a­tion of Buick’s mid-size model that’s sched­uled to ar­rive for the 2018 model year will be avail­able in two for­mats. The sedan ver­sion will be based on the Aus­tralian Holden Com­modore, but it won’t be built in “Oz” since par­ent Gen­eral Mo­tors is end­ing all ve­hi­cle pro­duc­tion there in 2017. Also slated to re­ceive a Re­gal badge is an all-new wagon model that will be called the Opel In­signia in Europe. Ap­par­ently the of­fi­cial name here will be the Re­gal Tourx, which in­di­cates that it will be equipped with stan­dard all-wheeldrive and com­pete with the Audi A4 All­road, Jaguar F-Pace and Subaru Out­back wag­ons plus sim­i­lar body styles from Mercedes-Benz and BMW.
