Hello. Here, I thought about creating crossovers to replace the Theta CUVs (Chevy Equinox, Pontiac Torrent, Saturn Vue). So, on a slightly shortened and lowered platform, I created three new CUVs.
The "rough and ready" CUV is ready for the city while offering a rough look that can be described similar to a bulldog. The Nomad would replace the Equinox, slotting above the HHR, but below the upcoming Traverse. It features a windshield that connects to the sunroof (similar to the Opel Astra feature), and has a sleek and sporty 3-door design. The taillights mimic those of the HHR, but offering 3 lamps instead of two. The front end combines retro looks (bulging fenders and hood), with the new Chevy grill seen on the Malibu.
Seating: 4-5, depending on seating option of captain chairs in back.

The Sport's Car CUV of the group is by far the meanest looking of the trio, which bonds well to it's name. Even the red color helps highlight the nature of "The Rage". Replacing the Vibe and Torrent as the Utility vehicle in the Pontiac lineup, this CUV is bigger than the Vibe, yet smaller than Torrent. It features rear suicide doors (a-la Mazda RX-8), and a sleek roofline. The front end can best be described as "Solstice taken to Extreme". The twin Pontiac grill is featured up front, while the headlights have a snarling look to them. Various ground spoilers help highlight the performance potential of this CUV. It would have either a fuel efficient 5 cylinder engine, or a V6 in the top GT model.
Seating: 4-5, depending on seating options.

The Elegant and sculpted CUV of the trio, the Regina is designed to slot below the Enclave. Offering a sculpted and sleek body, the Regina is designed to appeal to older buyers who don't need to move 7 people with the Enclave but want luxurious utility, and to appeal to younger buyers who like the idea of the Cadillac SRX and Escalade, but don't want to be that flashy and flamboyant. The Regina features classic Buick design cues, such as the chrome side portholes. The signature Buick grill has been slightly altered, but still features the waterfall design of Buick. The headlights are zenon with blue rings, similar to Enclave. The interior is rich with real wood and leather and has a flowing design around the cabin, making passengers feel snug. The Regina also features optional Granite trim on the dash.
