Verano motors replaced along with appearance. Devoid of fringing grille with a modified structure adjoins the new led headlights. Under the logo with a larger “wings” is a more aggressive bumper with chrome “boomerangs”. It seems that the hood also had to be replaced.

In July, three-cylinder engines replaced the entire engine range of the Opel Astra family. Now the same reform has come to a relative Asters in China by the name of the Buick Verano. Instead of “four” 1.5 SIDI (118 HP and 146 N•m) and its turbulence (169 HP, 250 N•m) now put Turbotronic — 1.0 (125 PS, 180 N•m) and 1.3 (165 HP, 240 N•m). The first is from the old six-speed “automatic”, and the second from a CVT, while semidiapazonnym “robot” is forgotten.
