Last week Buick released a teaser image showing the next addition to their portfolio in China, the Envision, hiding under a sheet while sandwiched between the subcompact Encore and full-size Enclave. While that image did come along with an announcement confirming the Envision’s arrival, it didn’t show us much in the way of what the car will look like.
Car News China recently spotted an Envision prototype undergoing testing in China, and the images give us a good idea of what the Envision will look like when it’s unveiled at the Chengdu Auto Show in September. Buick’s waterfall grille can be seen on the prototype, while the exposed sides show doors with a high beltline and sharp body lines.
According to Car News China, the Envision will ride on General Motors’ Delta platform and will be powered by a 2.0-liter SIDI turbocharged engine and a 2.4-liter SIDI four-cylinder mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. Prices should start at around 160,000 yuan ($25,779 USD) and reach 220,000 yuan ($35,447) when it goes on sale in fourth quarter of this year.
