The New Buick Regal Resembles A Mazda, And We Don’t Hate It
Let’s talk about the new Buick Regal, the undisguised Opel Insignia. What we also need to address is the fact that it looks a lot like a Mazda. We can tell especially in the grille and headlights, and in fact, if you look at a photo of the vehicle with tape covering the badge in the middle on the grille, you might mistake this car for a new Mazda6. Good news is, Mazdas look pretty sharp these days, so we’re not complaining.
Spend some time looking at the rest of the car, and you’ll notice there’s a fair amount of originality. The lines and details are all fresh, and there seems to be some design elements pulled from Buick’s beautiful Avista concept. A sweeping roofline creates a coupe-ish profile with an abbreviated rear deck. We’d say this look is a big improvement from the somewhat bulbous current-generation Regal, which also started out as an Insignia.
