    Buick Launches Luxury Minivan, the GL6






    Buick calls its refreshed GL6 a multi-purpose vehicle, a more palatable term for minivan. Whatever you want to call it, this Buick features plenty of tech goodies. It comes with two connected widescreen displays—kind of like what Mercedes offers in its luxury vehicles. The Buick's instrument cluster is fully digital, while the touchscreen infotainment system offers a split display setup so you can handle functions such as media and navigation at the same time. Over-the-air updates ensure the infotainment system stays up to date. The GL6 also enables enhanced voice recognition and cloud-based data sharing.

    No, This is a GM platform, Peugeot is no longer using GM platforms, no? I do not know for sure though.

    Zafira-C was exclusively GM, introduced in 2011 long before any arrangement or sale to PSA.

    Looking at pictures of the GL6, it looks like a light reskin of the Zafira-C

    Wasn't D2XX just an evolution of Delta II ?

    Since both platforms were developed by Opel i assume they didn't start from scratch.

    I remember seeing lots more minivans on streets in past. Opel Zafira, Citroen Picasso, Peugeot 5008, Renault Espace, Kia carnival, Ford B, C and S max ,etc.
    Now only new minivan I see are Ford S max and models from Renault (Espace, Grand Scenic).

    Not sure what constitutes luxury here, this would barely counter the Pacifica.

    Motortrend says its luxury, therefore it is

    At least they took the looks up a notch, I'd now call it bland instead of ugly as I'd call the current generation. Looks decent inside, maybe low end luxury is a more descriptive term for it.

    Is it still a called a minivan if the rear doors are hinged, not sliding?

    I'd like to have a vehicle with large side windows, but I don't want hot glass over my head.
