PostHeaderIcon 13 Crossover Wagons You Could Buy Instead of an SUV

High-riding vehicles, like crossovers and SUVs are at the height of popularity right now, but they’re not the only way to go if you want practicality and some off-road capability. Crossover style raised wagons are a great alternative and while they can still drive you over a rough field or rutted road with ease, they’re better to drive on road and actually pretty stylish.

They are essentially the wagon versions of different cars which have gained extra ride height and plastic cladding on the outside to protect them from scratches in their most vulnerable points. These vehicles usually have standard all-wheel drive and are usually a higher trim level, so they are not cheap (compared to the vehicle they’re based on) but they also come with a lot of equipment.

Here’s a list of the 13 coolest crossover-style wagons you can buy today.

PostHeaderIcon Opel Insignia GSi Sports Tourer

German automaker Opel first offered the Insignia in 2008, replacing the Vectra and Signum in its lineup. Also sold as a Vauxhall in Britain, a Holden Commodore in Australia, and the a Regal in China and the U.S., we’ve already seen a fastback iteration of the model offered on this side of the pond as the new 2018 Buick Regal GS. Now, Opel is offering up a hot-to-trot wagon version called the GSi Sports Tourer. The GSi nameplate was pulled from previous go-faster versions of Opel’s street cars, with previous examples including the Manta GSi and Kadett GSi from the mid-‘80s, as well as the Kadett 2.0 GSi 16V and Astra GSi and Corsa GSi. Now, followingw a full reveal at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, there’s a new one that the automaker says was designed to be both fun and practical. Outside, you’ll find long, lean, wide, and horizontal styling elements, while under the hood resides a potent turbo 2.0-liter engine, all of which combines with a substantial amount of space in back for people and things.

This is Opel’s new flagship station wagon, so it makes sense the Germans gave it the royal treatment. In fact, Opel is so certain it’ll bring the sporting goods, it included a picture of a racing suit, helmet, and gloves in the back of the trunk in the press shots. But is it really worthy of such connotations? Read on the find out.

In recent years the station wagon body style, or estate, or tourer, or whatever it’s called in your neck of the woods has been getting increasingly more popular. That has to do mostly with the fact that wagons suddenly became beautiful. On that basis, Opel Insignia Sports Tourer should be alright since it looks really rather good.

The new wagon Insignia is pretty and it is different and classy. If you can get past the badge, especially in the UK where this car is sold as a Vauxhall, the 2018 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer really is a great choice. And we’re not basing that just on the looks. The new model is also good at being a wagon, what with a 1,640 liters – over 100 liters more than the outgoing model – boot and such technology features as Opel IntelliLux LED matrix headlights, driver aids, head-up display, OnStar connectivity, an eight-speed automatic transmission, a 360° camera and intelligent all-wheel drive with torque vectoring.

2018 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer comes, as before, with a broad range of petrol and diesel engines in Europe. Just make sure whichever engine you get it comes with all-wheel-drive featuring two electrically controlled multi-plate clutches. Also make sure you get FlexRide, which adapts the dampers, steering, throttle response and shift points (on automatics) independently or based on the modes ‘Standard’, ‘Sport’ or ‘Tour’, which can be selected by the driver. The new central ‘Drive Mode Control’ software is the heart and soul of the adaptive chassis. It continuously analyzes the information provided by the sensors and settings and recognizes the individual driving style.

When it comes to major automotive offerings from Germany, Opel isn’t usually the first name to pop up. But it isn’t for lack of trying – the brand is well established across several international markets, with its flagship Insignia sedan leading the charge, packing premium touches at a bargain price point. Originally unveiled in 2008 at the British International Motor Show, the mid-size Insignia hasn’t failed to make the sale, with over 900,000 units moved since its introduction and a variety of accolades awarded. Now, as we quickly approach 2017, Opel says it’s dead-set on launching 17 new models, including the new-generation Insignia. Boasting a lower curb weight, more technology, a new architecture, and new styling, Opel’s next-gen flagship clearly isn’t pulling any punches.

The whole thing draws heavily from the brand’s Monza Concept, revealed in 2013 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The new Insignia is tasked with introducing the production side of Opel’s latest design philosophy evolution, and as such, it’s adopting a new name – Grand Sport.

It’s a title that should only be reserved those models that offer superior comfort and style for the long haul, plus adequate (or more than adequate) prowess and speed when the feeling is right.

Does the new Insignia fit the bill? Well, one quick glance at the spec sheet suggests it’s at least heading in the right direction. And that’s a good thing, because the Insignia is much more than just an Opel – swap the badges and tweak some of the equipment, and it’s a Vauxhall in the U.K., a Holden Commodore in Australia, and a Buick Regal in China and the U.S.

That makes this car extremely important to several big names, not just Opel. But the question remains – does it have what it takes to get out of the shadow of the Big German Three?

Introduced in 2008 as a replacement for the Vectra, the Insignia is Opel’s range-topping sedan and is sold in North America and China as the Buick Regal. Built on the same Epsilon II platform as the Chevrolet Malibu, the Insignia also spawned a wagon version, as well as a crossover-like model with higher ground clearance and plastic cladding. Already eight years old as of 2016, the first-generation Insignia is being replaced by a brand-new model that has been spotted in prototype form as far back as 2015.

While the sedan has shown up on public roads on many occasions and ditched some of its camouflage in the process, the wagon version, also known as the Sports Tourer, has finally been caught testing for the first time. Set to bow a few months after the four-door model, the new wagon could finally make it on U.S. soil with a Buick badge according to rumors that have been swirling around since 2015. The crossover version, called Country Tourer in Europe, could also cross the pond as the Regal Tourx, a name Buick trademarked with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The new Insignia could also find its way to Australia as the next-generation Holden Commodore now that GM decided to cease all manufacturing Down Under.

Details as to what the new Insignia Sports Tourer will bring to the table are still scant, but until Opel reveals preliminary data, let’s have a closer look at what we already know about the upcoming German wagon.

It would be easy to underestimate the importance of the upcoming Opel Insignia, especially if you take one look at the Opel name and that this will be a car only for Europe. But in fact, the Insignia will be sold with a Vauxhall badge in the U.K., a Holden badge in Australia, and will come to the U.S. and China both as the Buick Regal. It will serve as a brand flagship sedan in most markets (though not the U.S.), and will show the way forward for the design languages of the various brands that will give their own tweaks to the bodywork.

From what we can see in the spy shots, the design borrows heavily from the 2013 Opel Monza concept that was shown in Frankfurt in 2013. This was what the Monza was for, more to show off new design ideas that would be implemented than to serve as a preview for a reborn Monza model. The design will definitely be toned down, but it’s not all that clear yet just how much. The finished product most likely won’t debut until the 2017 Frankfurt show, so all we can do now is make some educated guesses.

Updated 07/15/2016: The Opel Insignia was caught testing in the wild again. This time, it has shed most of the face body panels and reveals a little more about what has been hiding beneath that camo all along. Check out the Exterior section below to find out what we know from this latest round of spy shots.

Continue reading for my speculative review of the Opel Insignia successor.


PostHeaderIcon 2017 Opel Insignia Successor Begins Testing: Spy Shots

Our spy photographers recently spotted Opel testing an interesting four-door coupe prototype, which is rumored to be the next-gen Opel Insignia. Despite the heavy camouflage, the coupe-like roofline is obvious, and its hindquarters have a shape that is similar to that of the 2015 – 2016 Audi A7. The redesigned Opel Insignia is due out in 2017 with a styling heavily inspired by the 2013 Opel Monza Concept.

U.S. buyers should pay attention to this car since the current Insignia is the same as the 2014 Buick Regal. For years, rumors have suggested that Buick could get a flagship or halo model inspired by the 2016 Porsche Panamera, and while this is definitely not that model, the hatchback design is very similar. If Buick does offer such a model, it probably wouldn’t have much competition in the U.S. aside from the 2015 Volkswagen CC… assuming VW develops a next-gen version of that sedan.

Speaking of Volkswagen, our source suggests that in addition to its sleeker design, the next-gen Insignia is expected to grow in size by almost four inches to compete with the likes of the Skoda Superb. Like most modern cars, the added size won’t result in a heavier car, as the information also suggests a weight loss of almost 440 pounds compared to the current Insignia.

Although the interior camouflage is even more effective than the cladding on the outside, the next-gen Insignia could get some advanced cabin technology, including a digital dashboard similar to what was introduced on the Opel Monza Concept.
