New Buick Model?

Recommended Posts

I spotted this car, but have no idea what is this. According to another article it says that it's a smaller car based on the styling of the Chinese LaCrosse (which is also sold in Taiwan).

I would say that is a Suzuki Forenza (a GMDAT product), with a snazzy Buick nose. Judging by the rear half of the car.

Here's another (tiny) pic:

Actually I was sort of thinking the same thing afterwards, judging by the 1.6L and the 1.8L. The Optra has the same engines worldwide.

Yup, definitely an Optra/Forenza.

The best part of that car is the Buick front end (which looks better than the NA Buick front ends, so far).

It looks like a unique variant of the Optra, combining the sedan body with a new nose more like the 5-door hatch. The mainland version is the Excelle, more like the standard Optra sedan. LIke the Excelle, the engines are probably Daewoo's version of the Family I 1.6 L (as used in the Aveo and Lacetti), and GM Holden's unique 1.8 L version of the Family II engine.

I wouldn't mind a front end like that on the updated LaCrosse for 08.
