  Buick Verano's hatchback versioin
Buick launches Verano hatchback, sedan sales in China
Automotive News China | 2015/11/20

GUANGZHOU -- Buick is accepting purchase orders across China for the newly introduced Verano hatchback and sedan. The models, which debuted here on Wednesday, range in price from 145,900 to 205,900 yuan ($22,800 to $32,200).

Both models have Apple CarPlay, which allows car owners to integrate their iPhones with a vehicle infotainment system, as well as adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, collision mitigation braking, a fuel-efficient stop-start system and automatic parking assist, General Motors said in a written statement.

The Verano is built on the same architecture as the new Opel Astra. The hatchback and sedan have 1.5-liter turbocharged engines. The hatchback gets a six-speed dual-clutch transmission, while the sedan has a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

The new models should offer a boost to a brand that already is on a winning streak. In October, Buick sales in China jumped 42 percent to more than 100,000 vehicles on strong demand for the Excelle GT and Envision crossover.

Now that the locally built Envision is doing well in China, GM is likely to greenlight plans to export it to the United States for sale as early as late spring, two people with knowledge of the plans have said.
