The Excelle GT is a compact notchback built by Shanghai-GM. Its hatchback version is known as Excelle XT. Based on GM’s Delta II platform, they are variants of the fourth-gen Opel Astra (Buick Verano) which was launched in 2009. The Excelle XT was released on January 23, 2010, and the GT five months later.

While bearing the Excelle nameplate, the XT and GT are neither siblings nor successors of Shanghai-GM’s Buick Excelle. The last-mentioned was a re-badged Daewoo Lacetti.

In March 2015, Shanghai-GM released the revamped Excelle GT, which gets a shorter wheelbase and engines of smaller displacements. The 2015 model gets multi-link independent rear suspension, which replaced the trailing arm on the previous generation. It is slotted below the all-new “Buick Verano” launched by Shanghai-GM in April 2015.

In 2012 Shanghai-GM sold 45,737 GTs. Annual sales rose to 150,521 in 2013 and 195,932 in 2014.
