A if it weren’t enough, the changes won’t stop there because Buick has prepared new wheel set, rear area, and different rear shape. If you are looking at the spyshot pictures, you know what I’m talking about.

The changes are also happening on the interior cabin where new technologies and comfort of ambiance are improved.
