The exterior of the MPV comes in two-tone theme, heightening the impact of its commanding presence. The grille of the Buick GL8 Century minivan stretches almost up to the hood and is paired with a set of distinctive arrow-shaped headlights, lending it the dynamic look that is naturally associated with MPVs. The two-tone paint also hints at the fact that the Century is meant for the luxury-seeking customer, something that becomes even more obvious once enters inside the MPV.
And even when one is not particularly in a mood to watch a screening, the wide chair seats in the second-row are good enough to simply relax while being chauffeured around. Buick's luxurious GL8 Century minivan joins the GL8 ES and GL8 Legacy to reinforce the brand's leading position in China's MPV segment, and is set to go on sale later this year.
