Crossover Buick Enclave seriously updated for the Chinese marketOctober 21, 2019
The Chinese division of Buick showed official images of the new seven-seat Enclave SUV, which has yet to win the sympathy of China’s motorists. Such a cross differs from the American in reduced dimensions and a redesigned.
This year, Buick is going to launch its new Buick Enclave crossover on the Chinese market. The model is based on the old C1XX platform, but the wheelbase in the Chinese version has decreased by 207 mm to 2,863 mm, and its length has been reduced by 209 mm to 4,981 mm. Fans of the brand could get acquainted with the appearance of the novelty in August: the local Ministry of Industry “declassified” the pictures for China. Now, branded images, including the interior ones, have got on the Web.
Externally, the Chinese Buick Enclave can be recognized by the new matrix headlights, as well as the radiator grill with horizontal stripes. The feed of the car is similar to Enclave for the home market, with the difference that the cross for the PRC received taillights with a new pattern.
Armchairs of the second and third row appeared in the passenger compartment, which can be folded using the button. It was decided to transfer automatic transmission control to a keypad, but we won’t see a virtual dashboard even in the top versions. The two-liter 230-horsepower turbo engine, combined with 9-speed automatic gearbox, sets in motion a novelty. For comparison, the brand offered the Americans a 3.6-liter aspirated engine with a capacity of 314 hp. The drive can be either front or full.
The new generation Enclave for China will be produced at the local joint venture General Motors and SAIC. According to Chinese media, the cost of a new crossover will start at 300 thousand yuan
Recall that earlier our portal talked about another new product from Buick for China – the updated Buick Envision SUV. This cross also changed externally, and also received a less powerful motor.
