Chinese-Spec Buick Enclave Shows Up As A Shorter Five-Seater


Buick’s upcoming crossover has been just been revealed ahead of its official launch in China.

As you can see in these pictures posted by Car News China, the model features a unique front fascia with split lighting units and a bold grille with horizontal chrome accents that spawn nearly the full width of the vehicle.

Moving further back, there’s plastic body cladding and a prominent character line, along with a sculpted bodywork, a relatively flat roof and a blacked out D-pillar.

The rear follows in the footsteps of the US-spec Enclave, as the model has a distinctively shaped rear window which sort of resembles a wide “W.” The crossover also has a tailgate-mounted spoiler, dual exhausts and wraparound taillights that are connected by a thin strip of chrome trim.

Overall, the model measures 196.1 inches (4981 mm) long, 76.9 inches (1953 mm) wide and 68.2 inches (1732 mm) tall with a wheelbase that spans 112.7 inches (2863 mm). This makes the crossover approximately 8.2 inches (209 mm) shorter, 1.8 inches (47 mm) narrower and 1.9 inches (48 mm) lower than the US-spec Enclave.

Despite these differences, the crossover will be called the Enclave as the larger US-spec model isn’t offered in China. That could make things confusing as rumors have suggested the crossover could be offered in the United States where it would slot between the Envision and Enclave.

Regardless, the Chinese variant is a five-seater powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four that produces 230 hp (171 kW / 233 PS). It will reportedly be connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to an all-wheel drive system. Detailed performance specs haven’t been announced, but it will reportedly have a top speed of 130 mph (210 km/h).

The Chinese-spec Enclave is slated to be launched later this year, so we expect more info to come out shortly.
