More pictures of the small Buick sedan




Still the Chinese version called the Excelle GT.

It is offered there with a base 1.8 Liter engine with 138hp. Similar to what we’ll get here on the Chevrolet Cruze.
But instead of the Cruze’s 1.4 Liter turbo option, the Excelle’s top engine is a larger 1.6 Liter turbo with 181hp.

  1. GM uses the same damn IP in every single one of their vehicles now. They have NO imagination and NO talent.

    I was really expecting something big of GM after the bankruptcy and they are sorely disappointing me.

  2. Excellent interior. Wish the exterior was sportier, this looks very farty. They needed to be thinking of Acura instead of Rambler. I don't like the Cruze, but it is better than this. The Focus just kills these two.

  3. I like it. I hope they decide to bring the wagon, since there are very few options right now. The 1.6T would be a nice differentiator from the Cruze – make it standard. Buick shouldn't have low rent trims.

  4. The interior SCREAMS "Regal's little brother" – which is a good thing.

    I just don't understand why they wouldnt follow suit with sorty/aggressiveness. THe grill works on all of their new cars, but theyve got to sharpen/angle them headlights?

    The first missed opportuntiy theyve had in the past four cars.

  5. looks better than the previous pictures you've posted, but the exterior still reminds me of the upcoming cruze. It's just too bulky for a small luxury car

  6. I agree with the first poster, GM is getting predictable. Same center stack in virtually all of their interiors, from their CUVs to their compacts.

    It is boring.

    You mean it screams just like every single other GM.

  7. "Same center stack in virtually all of their interiors, from their CUVs to their compacts. "

    In response to this I say, take a look at the center stacks and overall interiors on:

    ALL BMWs
    ALL HONDAs
    ALL ACURAs
    ALL AUDIs
    ALL VWs

    They are all exactly the same from their entry levels up through their flagships.

    So basically what you're saying is, that learning from the best brands in the world and following suite STILL isnt enough for you.

    Furthermore, regardless of whether its the same as other GM models. my sis in law bought a Equinox recently, and the infotainment is great, the soft touch materials are surpringly wonderful. Give them credit for making a MASSIVE leap from the worst in the industy – to coming up with something orginal, tasteful, functional.
