A couple days ago a keen GMInsidenews reader spotted a collection of new Buick Regal sedans at a General Motors testing facility in Michigan. It is believed that the sedans are part of the certified test fleet for the Regal, which is the last phase of development a vehicle undergoes before it launches for public consumption. The interesting part is that parked alongside the sedans were Opel Insignia wagons, approximately ten of them. Why would Insignia wagons be part of the Regal test fleet? Well, GMI was told why today.

According to sources familiar with GM’s product decisions, the GM Executive Committee recently approved the sale of the Opel Insignia wagon as the Buick Regal Wagon both in North America and China. GMI sources state that the wagon will come to the North American market sometime in the first quarter of 2011, with production taking place alongside the sedan in GM’s Oshawa, Ontario assembly complex.

I'm not 100% sold on the Regal wagon... I would need to see the car in its entirety, but as for now I can just imagine it looking like a stationwagon and morphing back into an old-man car :(

From what I have seen so far, I doubt it will only appeal to the older demographic. I have also noticed more young folks with station wagons. I blame Subaru!

The Subaru Impreza wagon is nice... I'd definitely prefer the 4 door, but an Impreza is an Impreza.

I can see your point, but I would have to see the Regal Wagon in its entirety before I make my final decision. Also, I'd hope that it would retain the same performance as the other Buick Regal models.

I like it. The Regal wagon looks pretty sporty. It would be nice to see the whole car, but from what I can see from the pictures, the Regal wagon seems to be pretty well integrated. And I agree, it does sort of look like an Audi... Audi A3.

Yeah it does look like an Audi. I hope that model does come out as it does look pretty cool. It would be nice to have all the comforts of the Regal with the extra space/storage capacity that a wagon can provide.

they changed the exterior of the sedan version compared to the opel counterpart so expect the wagon to change also. plus its been rumored that they are building the wagon and a diesel version.

The back does look like an Audi, but i wonder if parking a huge fleet of that size.. is not noticeable?

It should look like an Audi, its design is 100% German, just like the sedan with the ugly grille they are calling a Regal. It's an OPEL insignia that has been on sale for almost 3 years now. It's not hard to find a picture.... search REGAL WAGON. Not an SUV, it's a proper wagon.
