2013 Buick Encore Teased Again: Looks Like the Corsa SUV

Buick has released the second teaser image for the brand new 2013 Encore compact crossover via its Facebook page, and we have to say the packaging is looking better and better - like an American badge job of a European product.

Two more portions of the car will be shown before the full reveal at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show next month. From the angles of the back end, it’s clear this is the same vehicle as the Corsa SUV we saw testing a while back. GM will likely also make a Chevy Sonic-based version.

We can tell you that GM has put a lot of effort into developing this vehicle, as the company expects to sell 200,000 units per year. “Anything below that wouldn’t make economic sense as we wouldn’t then be able to fill a factory,” said GM’s Bob Lutz back in 2009.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
