Opel Antara to be listed in China in June

Published on June 8, 2011 by W.E. Ning

Opel will launch the face lifted Antara SUV at the Chongqing Auto Show in June. The Antara is imported and made in the ex-Daweoo factories in South Korea. Price in China will start at 271.000 yuan and end at 313.000 yuan. Only engine is the 2.4 gasoline. Opel is a small player in China where most of its cars are sold as Buicks. It ain’t exactly clear why GM finds it smart to extra-run the Opel brand as well. Via: Sohu.com.

    My thought is that Opel and Buick will start to grow apart in China. I would expect Buick to be modified by Chinese designers and rely less on importing an Opel and then putting a Buick badge on it. They will likely share the same underpinnings but not sheet metal

    I also see space for Opel and Buick. Buick is American mid-luxury with Opel being a sold a German/Euro spec car with different driving dynamics. There are some great models in the Opel family that, I believe, wouldn’t fit well with the Buick image such as the small cars and Opel Performance Cars (OPC) models.

    Your thoughts? Great website by the way.
