Buick is quickly becoming General Motors’ most impressive brand. Thanks to a clever marketing campaign and a strong visual redesign, Buick models have found their way into many new homes across the United States. Is the automaker ready to claim victory and casually coast through on its newfound popularity? Hardly!
Despite a staggering 1.2 million sales in 2014, Buick’s lineup only contains five models. Thus, there are plenty of gaps in the segment to be filled—starting with a sporty, three-door hatchback. Where will GM be getting the inspiration for this youth-oriented model? From Opel, of course!
After the successful introduction of the 2016 Cascada, which was also inspired by an Opel model, Buick is planning on rebadging the Opel Adam as a model it can sell stateside. However, it won’t arrive until the next generation of the hatch is released, around 2018.
Other new Buick models will include its own version of the Envision crossover from China, as well as redesigns for many of its current models. What types of models would you like to see Buick introduce? Share your thoughts with us in the comments!
