The American novelty 2020 model year is intended mainly for the automotive market in China, but there is no doubt that the “global” Opel Insignia will also look exactly like that. So far, nothing is known about the start date of the sale and car prices.

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China (MIIT) is an excellent source for searching for images of new cars, but in most cases they relate only to China. An exception to this rule is the American mid-size sedan Buick Regal, which is better known to us under the name Opel Insignia. The 2020 version of the model year, which will be sold in China, is likely to be available in other countries in the same form.

Several images of the new product (sorry in a rather poor quality) appeared on the MIIT official website and thanks to them we can find out what awaits us. The medium-sized car has a beige body color and small wheels, but there is no doubt that a more powerful version with the GS index (GSi in Europe) will look much better thanks to a more aggressive body kit.

The most obvious change compared to the current version of the Regal sedan is in the front – the headlights now have a ledge at the bottom, which is very similar to a similar design step by the German company Audi. I note that the brand new German hatchback Opel Corsa received a similar front optics.

  At the front of the Regal sedan is a mesh radiator grille with a thin chromed rod, while the air intakes have been modified and now have a thin LED. There is nothing special to say about the rear of the body, except that more rectangular exhaust pipes have appeared in the almost unchanged rear bumper.

  Changes in the cabin will be necessary, only they are very, very minor. It is reported that the novelty will be offered with a 1.3-liter turbo engine, as well as with a 2.0-liter engine.
