Buick has released a teaser image with the 2015 Excelle set to be fully revealed online on March 2.

The Excelle is a China-only model programmed to receive a makeover and most likely its design will heavily influence the next generation Opel Astra which will be sold in United States as a Buick Verano. Judging by this teaser image, the headlights appear to be more elegant than the ones of the recently spied Opel Astra K prototype but it is understandable taking into account the Buick version is considered as being a luxury model which is also why the Excelle's shiny front grille probably won't be seen on the Opel/Vauxhall Astra.

It's unknown at this moment whether the Excelle being teased here is a facelift of the current model or it represents the third generation. Buick started selling the second-gen Excelle in China in January 2010 as an XT hatchback while about a year later they added the GT sedan. Taking into account a facelift was launched in early 2013, it could mean the Excelle is about to get a new generation.

The 2015 Buick Excelle is scheduled to make its public debut at Auto Shanghai on April 20 during the first press day.
