Chinese authorities have leaked the upcoming refreshed 2024 Buick Envision S, publishing the official future product statement made by General Motors’ SAIC-GM joint venture in the Asian country. As such, the Chinese government once again got ahead of the automaker by releasing the first exterior images and technical data sheet of the refreshed second-generation Envision ahead of its official unveiling. As a reminder, the Chinese-market Envision S is equivalent to the North American variant, sold alongside the previous-gen Envision and larger Buick Envision Plus.
As usual in such cases, the leaked statement of the refreshed 2024 Buick Envision S includes a couple of images showing the crossover from the front three-quarters, the rear, and a third with details of various parts of the exterior design. Despite the low resolution, these images give a first look at what the updated 2024 Envision S looks like on a lower trim level.
Aesthetically, the main novelty of the refreshed 2024 Buick Envision S is in the front fascia that adopts the Pure Design language and the brand’s new corporate face introduced on the most recent products. New hallmarks of the Envision S include a new split headlamp assembly, a signature shark-nose front end, a generously sized lower grille and a redesigned Buick logo.
The 2024 Buick Envision S’ profile remains unchanged, adding only a few trim details like a new wheel design on the base version. Similarly, the rear section receives no major modifications except for minor cosmetic changes, including new taillight housings and a reorganization of the elements in the lower part of the bumper, with false exhaust outlets at each end.
The refreshed 2024 Buick Envision S will make its official debut over the next few months in China, the country of origin and sole manufacturing location of the Tri-Shield brand’s compact crossover. The updated Envision is also expected to feature a new interior design, with an updated dashboard housing the curved Buick Virtual Cockpit display, while keeping the second-generation model’s existing powertrain.
