    I like what I'm seeing so far. A little disappointed with only two interior colors and no mention of the V6 but maybe that is following after launch.

    I wish I was daring enough to go with the Rioja Red Metallic. It's gorgeous.

    I posted these thoughts on the Buick News side:
    I cannot imagine calling the Hatch a Sportback, touting it's sporty driving characteristics, then not offering it with the V6. Of course, BMW has been offering their 528 with a turbo 4 banger for years. Having driven a few 2016s....it's not that great. Let's see how this works for Buick. I like the car, but i also find it interesting that the Honda has admitted defeat with their CrossTour, just in time for Buick to launch this. This is going to be interesting.

    Good night and good luck.

    I will finally be in the market for a newer car. If this has more room than the CTS, I'm in. Of course I want to see the GS first.
    6 speed transmissions are the future

    Not loving the rear styling of the hatch. The greenhouse looks weird on this stretched chassis.

    The wagon looks awesome though!

    Why not offer the bright red on the sedan?

    Buick is really missing the boat not offering Carrageen on the wagon.
    I've been thinking my wife would do better with a wagon rather than her '09 Malibu considering all she totes around for work.
    But I can guarantee she won't go for any of the rather boring colors that Buick is putting on the wagon (sorry, neither of us like red).
    Boring white, boring silver, boring black, boring smoke pearl, and a dark blue. How about a bright blue if they won't give us Carrageen?

    It's almost as if Buick wants to continue to be though of as an older persons brand with the boring bland colors.
    Step it up on the exterior colors to match the sportier lines and nicer interiors.

    I'll have to check and compare the colors Opel and Holden will offer just out of curiosity.

    I'm not sure how V6 equals sporty anymore. I feel its suspension, steering, and transmission programming are going to contribute more to that than the number of cylinders. On paper this should have plenty of grunt to get into trouble fast enough. Its specs are definitely better than the NA I6 in my E90 328xi.

    I'm excited about this car. I've been eyeing the 4-Series Gran Coupe but I can't get over its inflated price tag. If Buick can undercut BMW by $10k, I'll definitely give it a test drive before I make a decision. GM has a habit though of acting like their cars can be priced up around Audi and BMW without putting any attention to the details that the Germans do.

    I get what you're saying, but to have 310 or more HP under the hood adds to the fun.
