General Motors has released the first official image of the all-new Buick Excelle for China. The new Excelle will launch on the Chinese car market in early H2. It is a very important car for Buick as the outgoing Excelle has continuously been in the top-5 best selling cars for many years.
The current Buick Excelle. Production has ended already but it is still available at some dealers. When still new price ranges from 86.900 to 139.800 yuan. Engines: 1.5, 1.6, and 1.8.
The new Excelle certainly looks far more modern than the old car, and its nose is nicely in line with the rest of Buick’s China lineup.
The price range will be about the same, but all engines are new: a 1.0 liter turbocharged 3-pot with 136 hp and a 1.3 liter four with 107 hp. ‘Boxes: 6-speed manual or CVT.
Old: 4515/1725/1445, wheelbase 2600.
New: 4468/1765/1469, wheelbase 2611.
The new car is shorter, wider, higher, and has a longer wheelbase. But the differences are so small they will barely matter in the real world.
Will the new Excelle be as successful as the old one? Only time will tell, but it looks like an interesting package, and most of its competitors are aging.
