    Production Buick Encore ???

    The captions are in Chinese and the article in Portuguese, so you members of the Jan Brewer Fan Club need to just get over that fact...

    Side panels are close to being right, the front and rear...not so much. Infuse a little more Enclave in the front and rear clips (wider lights, less buck-tooth grille).

    There seems to be an interesting feature on this vehicle. They have put a fuel filler on both sides. I guess that makes it a lot easier to fill because you can use either side of the pump and you can also avoid those embarrassing situations where you pull up on the wrong side.
    Research is what I am doing when I don't know what I am doing.

    I must;ve been asleep during driving school but a friend pointed out something I didnt know - the little arrow next to the fuel pump logo on the gas guage tells you which side the gas cap is on. I rent cars alot and since this was pointed out its always been right

    As for the pictures it looks like a mini RX350.

    It looks like a PS and better than my attempt!



    I also get an RX vibe from the pics, an RX mixed with an Enclave.

    from http://www.chinacartimes.com/2011/07...nese-magazine/

    Major automotive site, Auto 163, set about putting what they think Buick’s next Chinese made SUV will look like, and the result seems to be a baby Enclave. The Enclave is on sale in China but is an imported model from the US, the Enclave does offer excellent value for money when compared with other imported luxury SUV’s, so it is likely that the new baby SUV will offer the same value for money.

    according to Auto163 we should see a concept version at the end of the year and then it is likely to make it to the market in early to mid 2012, the new Baby Buick SUV will be riding on top of the Opel Astra platform which is already produced in China for the Buick Excell and also the Chevrolet Cruze.

    I read about that a couple years ago as well and have used that bit of information with a few rental cars. I use that occassionally when filling up our Golf as well because I don't drive it enough to remember which side the fuel filler is on.

    Good. I hate the grill on that thing. It looks straight out of Fiat circa 1984.

    Very poorly done chop.

    The blog entry just asks if Buick is getting a China-exclusive crossover, with further questions about what platform and engines. Nothing much.
