GM China has released new images photos of the facelifted Buick Encore crossover SUV, looking very trendy in red with a red inside. It will be launched on the Chinese car market on June 18. The facelift includes new headlights, a new grille, new bumpers, and an updated interior.
This is the current Encore, unchanged on the market since October 2012, so it was about time for a fresh up. Price starts at 139.900 yuan and ends at 186.900 yuan. Lone engine is a 1.4 turbo four cylinder petrol with 140hp and 200nm, mated to a six-speed auto or six-speed manual.
The engine will continue in the facelifted Encore, and price range will remain about the same. The Buick Encore is made in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture.
Alloys are new as well.
