No big surprises here, since these are the same changes we saw on the Chinese version.
It does look a bit more upscale, but also more conservative.
Which I guess is what GM wants for "The big Buick". Especially now that you can get the same car as the Chevy Impala for less.
I really liked the angled console design on the current model (lower pic). Now it's all flat, like anywhere else.
All they needed was to tone down the shiny plastic chrome everywhere. (Which they did also)
