While Opel has stayed fairly quiet on the next Opel Astra OPC, there have been quite a few spy shots of a supposed Opel Astra GSi with a Buick waterfall grille snapped in Europe. But, Autohome seems to have uncovered a Buick Verano GS hatchback.
And it’s credible, too. Pulling back a sliver of the camouflage reveals “Verano GS” badging on the hatchback, as seen in the spy photos. The hatch looks to be pulling heavy influence from the 2016 Opel Astra as well, and could very well be a simple rebadging job underneath. That’s not entirely a bad thing, though, since the 2016 Astra is quite handsome in our eyes.
Rumors have been swirling about the 2016 Opel Astra K hatch making its way to Buick in North America, and these spy shots may help its case. But, we’ll take them with a grain of salt, as it could be something reserved only for the Chinese Buick brand.
