Picture shave been taken of a Buick in testing. It seems to be a new compact crossover. The photographer explained that it looked a bit smaller than the Chevrolet Equinox and GMX Terrain which ties up with the information that has come in saying that the GM crossovers will have a new platform. This new platform is supposed to mix the Delta platform that is used for the Chevy Cruze and Buick Verano with the Theta platform used for the Equinox and Terrain. Therefore it looks like it would be using the new platform, called the D2UX.
It has been expected that Buick would introduce a crossover that would fit in between the Enclave which is large and the Encore which is small. There have even been rumours about the name which is expected to be either Envision or Anthem. In 2009 there were plans by Buick to release a car in this part of the market but the decision was unpopular and it didn’t materialise. They obviously think that there is now a market for such a vehicle.
The spy shots show that the roof has an interesting item on the roof. It is a cylindrical device and can be seen quite clearly. The photographer said that it looked like the camera that Google uses to take photos for its Google maps system. It could be that they are working ith Google on an Autonomous car or it could be something completely different!
