That’s what The Sleuth has been told and it will arrive wearing a Regal badge. It seems that, with the demise of the Verano following the 2016 model year, this General Motors’ division will add a wagon as a companion to the next-generation 2018 Regal sedan. Both models will be based on the Opel and Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer wagons that are currently available in Europe. The next-generation Regal is expected to be a bit larger than the current version and will come with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine expected to make close to 300 horsepower. The fact that the wagon will be sold here in the first place tells your Spymaster that there’s growing interest and acceptance in this particular body style.
