Spy shots: New Buick GL8 MPV in the flesh
MPVs have stayed in the realm of business use in China, where as in Western countries they are used for larger families that require extra space for the road due to Chinese families being largely nuclear, there is of course not much need for a 7 seater van on every driveway in China (or rather apartment complex car park. The GL8 was originally designed to fill the luxury MPV gap that existed in the Chinese market, but other brands soon cottoned on to Buicks plan and have recently introduced their own offerings, the new generation of Buick GL8 is set to trump them all. Renderings of the new GL8 have been posted to China Car Times several times already, but this is the first time that internal pictures have been shown. The Buick GL8 will be powered by a 2.4L 4 cylinder engine or a 3.0L V6 engine.
The finished product is likely to see a Guangzhou Auto Show launch later next month.
