Opel Insignia Sport Tourer – Click above for high-res image gallery

Lately, Opel has shown no signs of slowing down, with news of new models popping up with regularity. But while most of those models are based on the Astra, Opel's newest offering could be based on the larger Insignia, taking the shape of a crossover.

This isn't the first time Opel has toyed with the idea of a large crossover, having worked on such a project that was shelved in 2008 when the economy collapsed. Now that things are looking better, the project is reportedly being revived.

The crossover would offer three rows of seats and either front- or all-wheel drive on a high-riding version of the Insignia's platform. The model would be targeted particularly at the rapidly expanding Chinese market, with the Citroën DS5 in its sights, but could theoretically make it to these shores as a Buick to join the Insignia-based Regal sedan – or if Opel has its way, under its own badge.

      The world doesn't need another crossover... ...what we need are more sportwagons!

      interesting how americans hate wagons(though they pretty much invented them),but love big SUVs...only wagons americans seem to like are wagons that are made to look like trucks...they love the sedan counterpart but not the wagon.. Das Perplexed

      Looks like the TSX wagon, but the rear end is a bit uglier.

      Looks like an Audi A4 or A6 Avant.

      I'm not a crossover fan but it's a very nice looking car from most angles and those wheels are awesome!! I'll take a set now, please. Call it a Buick Regal Steroids Edition and bring it on over.

        You're talking about the wagon in the pictures right as opposed to a crossover suv? By the way I completely agree, I want that wagon here now.

        That's not the crossover they're referring to, it's the car it will be based on. The images clearly show a wagon

          Right, I should have been clearer in my statement. I'm not a crossover fan because I prefer smaller cars with lower centers of gravity -- regardless of what was pictured in the post. Separately, I do like the wagon in the pictures. :)

      Can you please give Honda some advice on designing sedan-based crossovers?
