New Buick Excelle

Just a few more pictures of the new version of the Buick Excelle sedan for China.
Previous models of the Excelle were mostly rebadged Chinese versions of the Opel Astra.
This one seems to be quite different. And  smaller. (It is about 8 inches shorter than the previous Astra Sedan)
So this could actually be based on the next generation Opel Corsa GM was planning.
(The one that never saw the light of day since Peugeot decided at the last minute to use a PSA platform for the next Corsa.)
That “old” GM small platform might be the one used here. In this “Corsa sedan that never was”…

  1. Too much devoted to the Chinese marketplace vs. The North American and EU marketplace. I more interested in the North American then either of the other two marketplaces.

  2. The "Excelle?"

    A bit of an overstatement, that's for sure. I guess it's better than naming it the "Underachiever"
