China is the world?s biggest auto market where driving a foreign vehicle like a brand new Buick means higher status in their society. There?s not a car dealership in China that does not have at least one or two of the family Buick vehicles available on its lot. It?s the country?s hottest luxury car with over 254,000 of them rolling off the lot in the year 2011.
Here are some top Buick cars that are only found in the Chinese market and nowhere else.

This luxury vehicle has been a major part of the Chinese line up of Buick cars since the early 2000s. It was last updated in 2013 and is marketed to Chinese buyers as a luxury family car. While sales for this family car continues to grow as the years past, GM plans to release another model in 2017. It?s quite obvious that these vehicles will be in demand for quite some time now.
This sedan is considered by many Chinese buyers as the epitome of luxury. It is also the successor of the Buick Excelle GT but a much smaller executive car in comparison. It?s mainly popular among business professionals. There?s not an office building in China where one of these is not seen parked in the lot. It?s known as a very high end luxury vehicle in China.

Chinese consumers seems to not be able to get enough of the waterfall grille and classy interior that comes with this luxury sedan.
Buick Verano Hatchback
While hatchback vehicles in China have never been very popular when compared to a new sedan and new suv, this hatchback is sold to Chinese consumers as a more sporty alternative sedan. It;s a much more racier luxury vehicle as opposed to the other Buick cars.
This luxury Buick is considered the face of Buick cars in China. The Chinese refer to these vehicles as the business car. The car has been remodeled in recent years but has not fallen off the market not once with sales still going strong. While it?s become a much cheaper model in China, the company has since said that they have no plans of discontinuing this model.
