The Excelle XT hatchback and its notchback version, the GT, are compact cars built by Shanghai-GM. Based on GM’s Delt II platform, they are variants of the fourth-gen Opel Astra 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 2012 Shanghai-GM sold 127,575 XTs and 45,737 GTs. 50,373 units of the XT were delivered in 2014.
