Withour careful market positioning this minivan will reinforce the boring image Buick is trying to lose. (see Verano compact)To stand out in the market, it must sell as a higher priced over the top luxo van. A van that Lexus or Cadillac would sell if they had one. If this is nothing special, just a "nice" van...General Motors better be smart & rebadge it as a Chevy or GMC.
oddly and obesely proportioned, and all that action on the lower bumper is in vain; as is much of the design. I get the same from their new small sedan, the "baby-buick" (excellero or whatever its called). Don't bring it to the states, it'll look dated real quick.
Yeesh! This won't help make Buick a sexy brand. Let Chevy battle Toyota and Honda selling practical, bland cars.
So the fact that it's named can be pronounced "Glate" and it's for the Asian market is a coincidence?
OK for the Chinese market where Buick is a VERY popular prestige brand. That boring box would flop in the U.S.
Looks like it should have a Geely or Ssangyong badge on it.
Unless it can upstage Honda, Toyota, Kia, and Chrysler...don't bother....as much as I WOULD like to see it over here.Either way GM already makes minivans here: Traverse, Enclave, and Acadia.Sliding doors don't make minivans.
TOO Narrow & short (for the US)... it will look ridiculous parked next to a Grand Caravan.
