Less than a month ago, the first official photos of the updated Buick LaCrosse sedan for the Chinese market appeared on the Internet. Today, the American manufacturer has published additional details about its long-awaited new product, and also spoke about its new version of Avenir.

Starting with the usual LaCrosse, the American brand Buick will use a new 2.0-liter turbo engine in its engine range. This is one of the engines of the eighth generation Ecotec family, providing a maximum power of 237 horsepower and torque of 350 Nm. Coupled with a nine-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, the engine provides an average fuel consumption of 6.9 liters per 100 kilometers and is reportedly in compliance with Chinese emission standards 6B.

As for the flagship performance of the model LaCrosse Avenir, the novelty is designed to “create a luxurious and sporty atmosphere that reflects the latest design philosophy of the brand.”

In essence, this means that buyers in China receive the same model, only with an exclusive body color, 19-inch wheels, decorative leather seats, Avenir logos on the front doors and the ability to use an individual customer service program with a wide range of exclusive services.

In the People’s Republic, an updated version of the sedan will be offered at an initial price of 239,800 yuan, while the most expensive modification of the novelty received a starting price of 289,800 yuan.

 Buick does not plan to release an updated model at home – this is due to the decision of the management of the GM concern, which includes Buick, to close its plant in Detroit Hamtramke, which produces LaCrosse for the North American market.
