Buick Reviews

Buick

Buick is currently the oldest of all the American carmakers still in business. It was formed as the Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company in 1899, an independent engine maker, which was incorporated as the Buick Motor Company in 1903. The company's growth was founded on its ability to innovate, from the 1904 Model B, which was nicknamed the 'moving couch of America', to the 1911 closed body car - which hit the market four years before Ford's equivalent.

The company enjoyed massive post-war success as part of General Motors, introducing well-regarded lines such as the Century, Regal, LeSabre, and Park Avenue - names which remained in the company's line-up until into the 21st century. It remains a strong component in the GM marque portfolio, and as well as enjoying strong home sales, Buick has a huge presence on the Chinese market.

Good: Full-sized American, with power to match and elegant styling
Bad: Less of a following than some of the more obvious alteranatives
Good: Bold styling and a real head turner, without the cost of a Cadillac
Bad: Despite being an entry level car, it's still huge and thirsty in European terms
