    Looks handsome enough. More evolutionary in following the Adam's mold than revolutionary.

    It's a rough segment. I know they retained the old platform, and hope all the chassis updates make it competitive.

    I especially like the 3-door. The updates look thorough and like they'll serve the car well until it's finally redesigned.

    Let's hope sales improve, as well.
    Peace,

    Why couldn't that, nicely appointed, be a Buick?

    I bet it will be a Buick, with BMW, Merc and Audi rushing to build small cars GM needs either Cadillac or Buick to be in that segment as well. Makes more sense for Buick, they already have the mini-CUV, this will complement it. I'd rather not see Cadillac with such a small car, but Cadillac may need to be in the segment as Buick may not be able to compete against the Germans.

    Nice looking little car though!

    It will not be a Buick. Buick folks probably did not know it was being developed.

    This.

    I swear, if someone photoshopped an Opel badge onto a '71 Pinto and posted it here, there would be an inevitable chorus of 'This needs to be a Buick now!' posts. No, not everything that Opel does needs to be a Buick. If the Buick brand is going to mean anything, they should be building luxury and near-luxury vehicles, but for cryin' out loud, not entry-level sub-sub-compacts like this Corsa! I'd like to see an Alpha-platform Regal or Grand National coupe. Something fun and powerful and upscale... something between a Camaro and an ATS.

    That's what Buick was and that era is over. Buick needs to find a new path, and like the other GM divisions can't rest on their long since past accomplishments. It's a new car market out there... But I do agree on your second comment, Buick should be one step below Cadillac.

    Part of today's new reality is small cars, maybe this Opel isn't good enough for Buick, but Buick or Cadillac needs to get into this segment.
