Buick, overseas stablemate to Australia’s Holden, will unveil its new Verano small sedan at next week’s Shanghai Auto Show.

The current model, launched in 2011, is essentially a re-styled version of the Opel Astra sedan. Although it wears its own unique look at both ends, much of the Verano’s body and interior is shared with the Astra.

The new model, teased today in a single shadowy image, appears likely to again share an obvious connection with its Opel platform mate.

Opel has yet to reveal its next-generation Astra, although TMR’s spy photos of the new hatch model reveal tail-lights that are similar to the hooked design shown with today’s Verano teaser.

An integrated boot-lip spoiler can also be seen, along with a pair of sharply creased character lines through the profile.

Buick says that, up front, we can expect to see styling elements from the 2013 Riviera and 2015 Avenir concepts.

Technical details are still to come, but it is understood the new Verano will ride on the same Delta II platform that will underpin the Astra and the Chevrolet/Holden Cruze range, among others.
