The next-generation Buick Excelle

Back in May, we discussed Buick’s plans to revive the Excelle model in China. Now, the brand has revealed more details about this comeback car, in light of its release in China this past Friday.

The Buick Excelle manifests the latest amenities and design cues as well as a longer and larger body. The new model is built on the GM GEM (global emerging markets) platform which is poised to present one unified architecture to the global market to help streamline the brand’s reputation internationally. Thanks to its enhanced overall size, the trunk space is now more roomy, supplying approximately 17 cubic feet of volume for possessions.

The new Excelle incorporates three advanced safety technology features: Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Straight-Line Stability Control (SLSC), and Hill Start Assist (HSA). It also includes six airbags and a reverse radar.

A 1.3-liter engine outputs 106 horsepower and 98 lb-ft of torque, so it’s not the most forceful commuter. That’s a small price to pay for the stellar mileage this model is expected to yield, however. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) is predicted to boost fuel economy by 30 percent more than the previous version of the Excelle, to help drivers save at the pump. 

The new-generation Excelle also adds on the latest technology features to appeal to younger drivers. A five-year courtesy subscription of OnStar comes standard. Other perks include 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and Baidu CarLife. The brand has also included 22 functions and four value-added services such as Turn-by-Turn Navigation, Vehicle Diagnostics and Emergency Service, to round out this ride’s high-tech.

Stay tuned for more details about this exciting reboot of the Buick Excelle.
