    Buick is now a massive brand, bigger than Opel, with about 1.4 million units per year

    So, is Buick now going to design/build all it's own models in USA - or just import from China ?

    Get China to pay the bulk of development costs and add Buicks as incremental product in North America,
    GM has no business owning European brands in a market it never understood, this is better for everyone.

    So far I like the new design theme. Looks okay on a small SUV. Hopefully it will look good too on the new Astra and Insignia. But the latest model in Opel showrooms, the Corsa, the design theme still looks very similar to the Chinese Buick you posted.

    Both Brands are now free to go and be themselves
    The Mokka is the successor of the Buick Encore.
