I checked to see if it was April Fools Day. Buick has big styling issues. Their crossovers are nondescript. The Lacrosse look like a throwback to the Lacrosse of about 2005. The Regal is duller than dull.

And that new Regal Sportback seems to look good for a romp.
this only confirms that the chinese completely lack good taste. nuveau riche syndrome. and the Regal IS good looking. It's European..... and pretty much the only Buick worth looking at.

I'm sure there were "Opel" projects in motion when GM flushed Opel.

Total Opinion Alert :

The endless appetite for such vehicles as the X1, X3, GLA, Velar, Navigator, Ewoke, Escalade, Levante, RX and such leave little respect for US tastes either.

The CT6, CTS, LS 500 and Continental would sell in a market that had better taste.

Excellent point ^^^

I do think the LaCrosse, Regal, and the new Enclave look good. I can't help myself, but I think the Encore is kind of huggable.

Its cute in a way that an SUV shouldnt be, and I dont mean GMC's forced grotesque wreck either.

I think that it looks too small, too vertical, and too tipsy to (1) be a Buick and (2) be compelling.
