The Opel Insignia is certainly a well-traveled piece of automotive design. Currently, the German mid-sized sedan is sold in mainland Europe as, obviously, the Opel Insignia, in the UK as the Vauxhall Insignia, and in China and North America as the Buick Regal. For 2013, you can add Australia to the list of countries the Insignia has been to as Opel prepares to introduce the brand to the market there for the first time, but before that takes place, the German automaker plans to give its award-winning sedan a bit of a makeover.
Spy photographers snapped these shots of the refreshed Insignia undergoing testing in Europe recently. Although the eyeball-busting camo doesn’t reveal any small details, it is obvious that Opel will mildly update the front and rear bumpers, the grille, and the headlights and taillights. It’s also expected that the Insignia will also have some mild updates to its interior as well. At the moment, the Insignia’s styling hasn’t been touched since it was revealed in 2008.
Besides Australia getting the Insignia for the first time, we have to wonder if this nipped and tucked version of the German sedan means that our Regal will be treated to the same updates in the near future.
