General Motors has stopped leaking and started teasing. Here we have the first photos of the interior of the new and highly anticipated Buick Envision SUV, showing a very luxurious interior decorated with high end materials and a partly digital dash. The Buick Envisionwill be launched on the Chinese car market later this month on August 28, and that is earlier than previously expected. Price will start around 160.000 yuan and end around 220.000 yuan ($26.000 – 35.500).
The Envision is manufactured in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture, it based on GM’s Delta global-compact platform. The Buick Envision will be positioned above the China-made Buick Encore SUV and below the Buick Enclave SUV that is currently imported into China.
There will be two petrol engines available, both based on GM’s 2.0 four-cylinder turbocharged petrol. The low-spec variant delivers 200hp and 280nm and the top-spec variant delivers 260hp and 363nm. Transmission is a six-speed automatic.
But that is not all. GM is apparently also working on a 1.5 turbo with about 170hp and on a hybrid variant based around this 1.5 turbo. It is yet unknown when these variants will hit the market.
Size: 4667/1839/1663mm, wheelbase is 2750.
Clock in style. Large TFT touch screen with the InteklLink infotainment system.
Sport and Tour settings for the chassis and there seems to be a hill-descent control system installed as well.
Leather seats for all.
