The facelifted Holden Commodore has been spied in wagon-bodied Opel guise during hot weather testing in Europe, ahead of an anticipated reveal later this year.
Sold abroad as the Insignia under the Opel and Vauxhall brands, the updated Commodore still wears heavy camouflage at the front and rear to disguise the upcoming design changes.
It appears the grille, bumper and headlights will get a rework at the front – potentially getting a look more in line with the all-new Corsa hatchback revealed last week – while the tail-lights and rear bumper will also get revisions.
The wagon you see here appears to be an entry-level model, wearing small alloys and less aggressive bodywork compared to, say, the sporty VXR.
While this set of images doesn't show the cabin, it's likely the changes inside will be limited to a new infotainment system and revised trims and textures – the former could potentially include a new digital driver's display, too.
It's unclear to what extent PSA parts will be used in the updated Insignia/Commodore, given this is a mid-life refresh rather than an all-new model like the new Corsa that has been co-developed between Opel and its PSA parent since inception.
Overseas reports speculate, however, the Euro-market Insignia will pick up some new powertrain options sourced from the PSA Group – we reckon a look at the Peugeot 508's catalogue might serve as a guide – with the potential for electrification of some kind, too.
No firm date has been given yet for the reveal of the new Commodore/Insignia, though it's likely to occur later this year or early next, perhaps at one of the major European motor shows.
With that in mind, keep an eye out at Frankfurt in September, or at Geneva next March. Click on the images for the full gallery.
