Chinese Counterpart Opel Astra Did Not Surprise The Experts

In the framework of the Shanghai motor show, the company have shown the newest Buick Verano sedan, impersonated by Opel Astra K, whose premiere will have to wait until autumn. Exterior Chinese-American novelty has turned cautious, even though the local audience, such a machine should be like.


How much the latest generation Opel Astra will differ from that presented in Shanghai Buick Verano sedan, is still unknown. The car is issued under the American brand for the China market, supported much-loved Chinese creative direction Buick - bit "curvy" silhouette and an abundance of chrome parts on the front end. But what happens Astra, we learn only in September in Frankfurt.


However, in reality, Buick Verano certain elements of the body more resembled Chinese new Chevrolet Cruze, which outside of Asia is not for sale (by the way, "live" cars on the streets of Shanghai seemed to us very attractive). This should not be surprising, since the new Astra, Buick Verano sedan and the Chinese Cruze is built on a common platform D2XX, which has predetermined their technical similarities - for example, just a trio of similar power structure and the same semi-rear suspension mechanism of watt.


Under the hood of new items to rest until only one powerplant, it's petrol four with 1.5 T turbocharged SIDI power 169 HP, segregational with seven-step "robot". A little later should appear basic aspirated 1.5 l, and both versions will be available mechanics. Interestingly, a sedan based on the current Opel Astra J will remain in the ranks, despite the release of a new model - now sell such a car called the Buick Excelle GT.


Finally, we note that Buick in China oceanglobe, and this is evident not only on statistics. On the streets of Shanghai, we met a lot of Buicks, which are turned on Chinese taste for Opel and Chevrolet. And the exterior of the Astra hatchback and Mokka SUV and does not have to touch it - just changed the nameplates Yes grille.
