Shortly after local spy photographers captured test mules of the vehicle, Buick released an official image of the upcoming 2016 Verano GS hatchback for China. The brand announced the 2016 Verano would arrive in a standard hatchback guise and be complimented by a new GS model. Of course, that’s in addition to the recently revealed 2016 Buick Verano sedan, too.
Buick has once agin whet enthusiasts’ pallets with two additional images of the 2016 Verano GS hatch. This time, we see the front of the vehicle, and get a clear look at the interior, all looking mighty fine, thanks to Opel design.
Besides the 2016 Opel Astra styling translating very well with a Buick waterfall grille, the brand also dropped a few additional details about interior features. The 2016 Verano GS hatchback will host a stylish black interior, with Flame Red details in form of color-contrast stitching, a center-console stripe and ambient lighting.
We’d previously learned the standard Verano hatchback will be powered by a 1.5-liter SIDI naturally aspirated four-cylinder with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The Verano GS hatchback will receive a turbocharged 1.5-liter SIDI four-cylinder, accompanied by a seven-speed DCG automatic transmission.
Is the 2016 Verano GS hatch looking good? Yes. Do we want to see this come to the U.S.? Double the yes.
