Buick Excelle XT Chinese Version

General Motors developed the Buick Excelle XT 5-door coupe at the Guangzhou Auto Show and it will go on sale in China in 2010. The XT incorporates the new design language of the Buick and sets a new visual standard for its class. It has a self-confident exterior and provides an expression that is appropriate for the compact segment. The interior is clearly up to the premium standards of the Buick with crafted flowing lines, low-gloss surfaces, and premium appointments throughout. It offers a warm and welcoming ambience. The carmaker offers four interior trim levels that provide a wide choice of decor. The Excelle XT offers a host of innovations and technologies. They include a class-leading choice of infotainment and communication systems, including three audio packages and two on-board navigation systems. The design and overall proportions maximize occupant space, the cab-forward windshield and raked center stack add to the roomy feeling. The model also has a separate under-floor stowage compartment. The ones interested should know that the carmaker is offering the XT with three choices of lightweight power-trains that offer high specific power output, low fuels consumption and reduced CO2 emissions. There is a 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder gasoline capable of developing 135 kW and 235 Nm of torque. The second option is a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter inline 4-clinder gasoline engine that delivers 116 horsepower and 155 Nm of torque, and last, but not least, there is a 1.8-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine that delivers 138 horsepower and 175 Nm of torque. All engines sent the power to the wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission offered as standard. With a maximum five-star NCAP safety rating anticipated, the body structure of the XT along with its restraint systems are designed to exceed crash safety standards around the world. The Auto Show will be opened for the public from November 24 to 30.
