The 2016 Buick Verano / Excelle has been spied for the first time.

Caught undergoing testing in Germany, the redesigned model has an evolutionary appearance but adopts a sportier front bumper and a more prominent grille. We can also see door-mounted mirrors, a more dynamic roofline and a dual exhaust system.

The fact that the car is undergoing testing in Germany suggests it will be heavily influenced by the next-generation Opel / Vauxhall Astra sedan. This isn't too surprising as the current Verano is closely related to the outgoing Astra sedan.

There's no word on what will power the model but General Motors is in the midst of launching a new family of Ecotec engines.  This likely means there could be some new additions under the hood.
