Noticed by Autoweek.nl, the images reveal the sedan has been given a light refreshing that mostly focuses on the front and rear fascias.
Starting up front, the Regal has been equipped with a revised grille that features a mesh insert and a thinner chrome bar. It is flanked by restyled headlights which have a small protrusion at the outside edges.
Further below, we can see a new bumper with a sportier design. It features a larger central air intake as well as new side intakes that incorporate LED lighting units.
The styling changes are less noticeable out back, but there’s a lightly modified bumper and a new dual exhaust system with rectangular tips. The taillights have also been updated, but just barely.
Unsurprisingly, the changes are similar to the ones seen on the facelifted Opel / Vauxhall Insignia. Spy photographers have caught the model on numerous occasions and it will also benefit from new lighting units and a modified front bumper.
There’s no word on performance specs, but the current Regal is offered with two different engines in China. The entry-level option is a turbocharged 1.5-liter that produces 168 hp (125 kW / 170 PS) and 186 lb-ft (252 Nm) of torque. Customers can also opt for a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder which develops 257 hp (192 kW / 261 PS) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque.
