2018 Buick Excelle.jpg

Buick Excelle. 2018 to date (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan. F/F, 1349 cm³ (I3 DOHC). After a gap since production ceased in 2016, Buick finally replaced its entry-level Excelle with a model slotting under the GT and GX, on the GEM architecture. Familiar 1·3 engine from more upmarket Excelles but without a turbocharger, managing 72 kW. Slight increase in wheelbase (11 mm). Styling considered more mature than Chevrolet Cavalier (2016–19), which had been mooted to take the original Excelle’s place in China. Cheap materials inside, no air conditioning, though some high-tech features such as keyless start and side-curtain airbags. Drum brakes at rear, further cementing Excelle’s entry-level status. Cheaper than Cavalier on launch, perhaps no surprise given the basic specification.

Manufacturing location: China

Marque: Buick | Model: Buick Excelle | Predecessor: Buick Excelle (2008–16)
