    Surprise! GM readying Aveo-based CUV for Buick

    Another surprise!

    THIS is probably what we saw on CBS. This could work - it would give GM a legit Mini Crossman competitor. If GM can pull it off so that this CUV can run apples-to-apples with a Mini, it could do wonders for Buick's image.

    Jim Hall of 2953 Analytics said on Autoline After Hours recently that Buick has a spectacular pipeline of new vehicles coming. I expect Buick to be really strong going forward.

    There is a market for premium sub-compacts/compacts and i say its better they test this market with Buick than Cadillac.

    Re: Surprise! GM readying Aveo-based CUV for Buick

    seeing as how it will have aveo components I have my doubts on this cars success. Considering that the current Aveo is a horrible little econobox Buick will need to invest some serious time and effort into making this CUV a decent seller but I have a feeling that it could work if done correctly

    Re: Surprise! GM readying Aveo-based CUV for Buick

    No. Nooooooo. NO.

    I agree, Buick needs a CUV that is smaller than the Enclave. Doing a nice upscale makeover of the beautiful Saturn Vue should be as small as you go with Buick. Period.

    Does Mercedes have a "Mercedes" version of the Smart? Of course not. Does Toyota get a Yaris and "upscale" it for Lexus? NO. BMW? Acura? I mean, give me a break here people! BMW owns MINI, and they don't have a "upscale" version of the MINI they sell as a BMW.

    This idea is SO CLEARLY bad, I can't believe it is being considered. An Aveo dressed up as a Buick? To sell along side the INCREDIBLE new 2010 LaCrosse? The Aveo is too small.

    NO NO NO NO NO.
