Images from a Chinese government website have leaked online showing off the design of the facelifted 2020 Buick LaCrosse.
Our spy photographers first caught a glimpse of the refreshed LaCrosse a few months ago but it was bathed in camouflage. These leaked images from Auto Verdict reveal that the new model’s exterior design will be a welcome change from the existing car’s bloated and unappealing look.
Viewed from the front, the new LaCrosse shares a host of similarities with the smaller Regal, also sold as the Holden Commodore in Australia and the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia in Europe. Key similarities include the headlights and grille.
Much more appealing than before.
The rear of the refreshed Buick LaCrosse also looks very familiar thanks to near-identical taillights to those of the Regal. The most obvious point of difference between the two is that the LaCrosse adopts a chrome accent running the width of the rear fascia and splitting the taillights. The larger LaCrosse pictured also comes complete with dual tailpipes and what appears to be a slim reversing light between them.
As the LaCrosse pictured is the Chinese-spec model, it’s hard to know if the U.S. model will look exactly the same.
Considering the bold new exterior look, it’s likely that the updated LaCrosse will adopt an overhauled interior. Possible areas of modification include the steering wheel, dashboard, infotainment display, and seats.
In terms of powertrains, we expected to see an inline-four mild-hybrid option offered alongside a V6.
Stay tuned for a full debut of the new Buick LaCrosse in the next few months.
