The facelifted Buick Excelle has been launched on the China car market, price starts at 96.900 yuan and ends at 118.900 yuan. The facelifted Excelle was expected to debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show in November last year but didn’t show, GM decided for a private party instead. The facelift is a rather minimal affair, including small changes on the head lights, grille, bumpers and rear lights.
The Buick Excelle is made in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture. The facelifted Buick Excelle is powered by a new 1.5 liter engine mated to a six-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic. Output is 107hp and 140nm. The outgoing 1.6 was more powerful with 110hp and 146nm, but it was only available with a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. New engine is also more economical.
Dash updated too with better materials ans some fake wood.
