The Buick LaCrosse is a midsize sedan built in China by the joint venture of Shanghai-GM. The first-gen, launched in China on February 22, 2006, shared the W-body platform with the Regal. Deliveries started in March 20, 2006. It gets the same underpinnings as the North American version, but localized powertrains and appearance (the localization was done by PATAC, or, Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center).

The re-designed LaCrosse, launched in China at the 2009 Shanghai auto show, drew inspirations from the Buick Invicta concept unveiled on April 19, 2008, in Beijing. It is based on GM’s Epsilon II platform. In April 2012, SAIC, a local partner of GM, released a re-styled second-gen LaCross, the Roewe 950. While getting a similar body and appearance, the SAIC variant skips some upscale features and is priced lower than the LaCrosse.
