The lineup now includes more than 20 versions.

Buick is now betting on completely different values than a decade or two ago, with a range of only crossover and SUV vehicles in the United States. However, in China, the American luxury brand has some rather intriguing products, one of which is the GL8 multi-purpose vehicle. This model has been given a facelift, which includes an expanded portfolio of versions as well as a new bolder design.

To begin with, the refreshed GL8 has a completely redesigned front fascia with different grilles depending on the trim level. In line with current design trends in the automotive industry, the GL8 Avenir, for example, bets on tonnes of chrome and a wide grille. The GL8 ES, in turn, has a slightly more restrained and sporty-looking front end.

Depending on the grade, the minivan can be equipped with features such as matrix LED headlights, 18-inch wheels, and electric swivel seats that rotate to the outside of the vehicle to allow disabled people easy access. The GL8 Legacy is a safety-focused model, with standard features such as adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and an automatic parking brake.

A new family-oriented variant based on the GL8 ES joins the lineup, with a special design for the rear seats that allows for easier entry and exit for elderly people and children. The equipment of this model also includes a dual 12-inch instrument panel on the dashboard, electric sliding doors on both sides, an electric liftgate, and foldable tables, as well as what Buick says is a segment-only set of self-healing tires from Continental.

The MPV has been sold on the Chinese market since 1999, with over 1.6 million units sold to date. There’s no word on mechanical changes introduced with the facelift, which most likely means a 2.0-liter hybridised powertrain mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission is available.
