Vehicle Profile: 2018 Buick Regal Sportback
A new, better version of the Buick Regal

The 2018 Buick Regal Sportback is an all-new car that ventures into territory American cars rarely brave and — thanks to a sublime combination of style, convenience and performance — actually comes out ahead of its more established German rivals.


There’s no denying a great deal of what makes the 2018 Buick Regal Sportback so interesting is its styling. In terms of shape, a sportback is like a cross between a hatchback and a coupe. It has the roof-mounted trunk characteristic of the former and the sloping roofline and truncated rear end more commonly associated with the latter. The Regal Sportback is, however, a four-door sedan — and thanks to these design choices, one with an indisputably gorgeous profile. What’s more, because of the wide-opening tailgate, the car’s sleek looks do not compromise its utility, but rather enhance it.


The 2018 Buick Regal Sportback enhances comfort at a truly personal level via an eight-way power driver’s seat with premium leather appointments, contrast stitching and French seams. Its QuietTuning™ technology uses acoustic laminated glass, triple door sealing and clever suspension tuning to remove all unwanted noises from the cabin. A Bose® sound system ensures that what you do hear is only in crystal-clear quality. The Regal Sportback also offers Onstar® 4G LTE and built-in Wi-Fi Hotspot, wireless charging, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, among various other technologies and apps designed to provide maximum convenience and accessibility.


Every 2018 Buick Regal Sportback is motivated by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 250 horsepower. Front-wheel drive models use a nine-speed automatic and have 260 lb-ft of torque, while models that use Intelligent All-Wheel Drive get an eight-speed automatic and an extra 35 lb-ft of torque. The latter also uses a completely different rear suspension design: five-link instead of four-link, making it the definitive performance model for those seeking more responsive handling. It also gets a twin-clutch system that can distribute torque across the rear axle so effectively that the car can still drive even if only a single wheel has traction.

With the 2018 Regal Sportback, Buick has established itself as a major competitor in the growing luxury sportback market.
