Should Buick bring over the Corsa?

Recommended Posts

I think so, and so does Jalopnik.

If Buick improves the Regal GS (ahem, stop restricting the LNF and have AWD) makes a GNX based off the ATS (or even the coupe) with that vicious twin turbo 3.6L V6, AWD and a six speed manual...maybe even bring over the Astra and the XVR/OPC performance version of it, and have the Corsa as a fun entry level hot hatch... Holy crap, LOL BYE OLD MAN STIGMA.

Looks interesting but I really don't see this as a Buick, unfortunately.

Bad idea for a Chevy because of the Sonic, nobody would buy it as a Cadillac, and GMC...well, no.

If Buick really is going to exist as a gap between Chevy and Caddy...this is a good way to do it.

Yeah, the only spot I see it fit is Chevy but like you said Sonic...

Buick to me is still a little more refined to accept a small hatchback. It would definitely kick the "old man" stigma but don't know who would buy a high $20k Buick small hatchback. I wouldn't... (pricing is my estimate)

I would have rather seen a German hot hatch under the Vibe moniker versus the Toyota Corolla we got. >_>

Finally had time again to pick up the controller and play some Forza 5 last night. Did a small hatch career section and chose the Vauxhaul Astra VXR, GM bring tthe Astra VXR over! Make sure it retains it's power and is relatively cheap and I'll eat my words and buy my first hatch.
