The MPV business may not be a hot one in the United States, but it sure is in China. Specifically, taxi companies and airports love the idea of a multi-purpose vehicle for its usability. Naturally, Buick offers the GL8 to fulfill this need in the People’s Republic.
Car News China has provided a leak showing the all-new GL8 ahead of its scheduled reveal, wearing very familiar styling cues to seen on numerous new Buick product in North America and China. Up front, the grille is Avenir influenced, and gives the MPV a much more upscale look.
Currently, three engines power the GL8, but a single 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder will power the new GL8, and it will also receive independent rear suspension, too, replacing its current torsion beam setup.
The report states the new GL8 will go on sale during the latter half of 2016 in China, with a price of 200,000 Yuan, or around $30,554 USD.
