The internet continues to spoil all sorts of secrets for automakers, with the latest casualty looking to be the production-version of the 2016 Buick Verano GS hatchback, which you can see here. The 2016 Verano GS is set to make its official debut at the 2015 Guangzhou Auto Show, but we seem to be staring at the real thing here.
We say that because the exterior color matches the teaser images previously provided by Buick itself, a bright surf-blue hue. Other than a revised front clip to house the signature Buick waterfall grille, what you see if nearly an identical copy of the 2016 Opel Astra. And, if you ask us, that’s not a bad thing since the Astra K is a very handsome looking vehicle.
Red accents fills the interior and exterior of the car, and a set of black-chrome wheels seem to round out GS-specific upgrades for the Buick Verano hatchback.
We do know powertrain specifics, however. Buick has stated the 2016 Verano GS will be offered with a turbocharged 1.5-liter SIDI four-cylinder engine, paired exclusively to a seven-speed DCG gearbox.
We’ll have the latest information on the 2016 Verano GS after the car’s debut in China on November 20, 2015.
