The Buick line up in China is quite frankly fantastic, you have a mixture of cars, everything from mini sedans, to larger sedans and MPV’s and SUV’s, it’s simply brilliant. It almost makes me want to become a Buick owner just looking through the glass at the dealership, cars like the new Regal and the Lacrosse want me to get my cash out right there and then but the upcoming Buick HRV might just put me over the edge:
The current Buick HRV is the ancient Daewoo Lacetti in Buick guise, but unfortunately its time has come to an end and is soon to be replaced by the Opel Astra which will become the new Buick HRV. The new Buick HRV is expected to have the option of a naturally aspirated 1.6l engine and also the much more anticipated 1.6T unit, there is also a chance of it carrying the 1.8L engine from the Chevrolet Cruze.
A launch date for the new Buick HRV is currently unknown, but it is expected to be before the years end when the current tax rates on sub 1.6L vehicles is expected to be changed.
