Chevrolet version of the Buick Encore

It almost seems more appropriate. The Encore is such a small SUV.
But where would a Chevrolet version be sold?

Europe is already getting the Opel version of the Encore which is basically the same car with an Opel grille.
And we are getting the Buick here in the US. Although you can see that the Chevy does have its own, although very similar, design.

This could be for south America, or India.

The 'Chev' version is slated for Australia with Holden badging.

Maybe this is the reason the Orlando was left out of the US product plan.. this would seem to be a much more logical, fuel-efficient replacement for the HHR. Now if only they'd bring over the Cruze wagon or 5-door.

Chevy, going for a lineup of almost all CUVs/SUVs.

Pre-bankruptcy GM is back in full effect! Glad to see that these guys really got with the times.

Was it necessary?

Pretty soon GM will have more models than when they had 9 brands...

I didn't get the Encore and I don't get this.

What's the competition? Patriot? CRV? Juke?

I hope this Chevy is not meant for the US since it is barely differentiated from the Buick Encore.

BTW, I saw the Encore last week at the Dallas Auto Show. It's looks about the size of a Toyota Matrix--only even more awkward (if that is possible.) In short, it looks like a Buick grill was slapped on some product that was designed to sell in Korea or China. Not pretty. Even the interior looked like it had far more hard plastic than padding.
