Is that the new Regal. I really like what buick is doing with their lineup. How's visibility out of there, the windows look small.

It's actually quite good, but that's my opinion.

Chevy Cruze will be built in Lordstown. The Regal will be coming from Germany for a short while until the plant in NA is ready.

Thats because it essentially is. There was supposed to be a European Insignia, a Chinese Buick Regal, and a North American Saturn Aura. Saturn got killed, so the Aura got reskined as a Buick (though its not the same as the Chinese Regal) as has been brought over here.

Yep, Oshawa...But, Shank is correct there are a lot of rumors flying on Ytown speculating what will built there in addition to the Cruze...But it is not this.

I wonder why they just didn't call it the buick aura. Seeing as how saturn got scraped, no one would give a flying f*** about the name.

But still... buick has come a long way
