2018 Buick Regal OVERVIEW

Hatchbacks were once the pariah of automotive body styles, but manufacturers have developed a new breed that deliver both handsome looks and utility. The 2018 Buick Regal Sportback offers a sporty, coupe-like design to take on some of the best premium models on the market.

What's New for 2018

The Buick Regal Sportback is a new model. It replaces the previous Regal sedan.

Choosing Your Buick Regal

Buick offers the 2018 Regal Sportback in Sportback 1SV, Preferred, Preferred II, Essence, and GS trims. Front-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is available. The Regal Sportback seats up to five. Standard cargo volume measures 31.5 cubic feet or 60.7 cubic feet with the rear seat folded.

Two engine choices are available, including a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, generating 250 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque (295 lb-ft of torque with all-wheel drive). Front-wheel drive models work with a nine-speed automatic transmission, while all-wheel drive versions have an eight-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy ratings come in at 22 miles per gallon in the city and 32 mpg on the highway for the front-wheel drive model and 21/29 mpg city/highway with all-wheel drive.

Buick Regal Sportback GS models are powered exclusively by a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 310 hp and 282 lb-ft of torque. This all-wheel drive model comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission and makes an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.

The 2018 Regal Sportback offers eight exterior colors, including five metallic ($395) and one tri-coat ($995) paint choices. Buick doesn't offer any factory options.

Base

The base model starts at $25,915 (prices include the $925 destination charge). Standard equipment includes halogen headlights with LED daytime running lamps, automatic headlights, LED-accented taillights, heated power-operated side mirrors, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. Other features include keyless entry with push-button start, a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, cloth seats, air conditioning, a rearview camera, OnStar 4G LTE with a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 7.0-inch color display, two USB ports, and a seven-speaker audio system. Buick offers no packages on the Sportback 1SV.

Preferred

Beginning at $28,590, the Preferred trim adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an eight-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support, and an automatic dimming rearview mirror. Two package options are available. The Driver Confidence I Package (Preferred) costs $1,245, adding LED headlights, cornering lamps, auto-leveling headlights, 18-inch wheels, rear park assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change alert with blind-spot monitoring. A Sights and Sound Package ($1,720) brings remote start, an eight-speaker Bose audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, and navigation.

Preferred II

With a price of $30,665 ($32,605 for all-wheel drive), the Preferred II brings in such features as fog lights, 18-inch machined-faced painted aluminum wheels, a heated steering wheel, the 8.0-inch Buick Infotainment System with a color touchscreen, and a 40/20/20 split-folding rear seat. The same packages as offered in the Preferred trim are available, but priced at $945 for the Sights and Sounds Package and $1,080 for the Driver Confidence I Package (Preferred II).

Essence

Buick prices the Essence trim from $32,655 ($34,705 for all-wheel drive). Added features include leather seats and heated front seats. The Sights and Sound Package ($945) carries forward as does the Driver Confidence Package I ($1,580) with a few additions, including wireless charging and power lumbar front seats. A Driver Confidence II Package ($1,090) builds on the basic package, adding adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, a following distance indicator, forward automatic emergency braking, and front pedestrian braking.

GS

Costing $39,990, the GS pulls out all the performance stops for the 2018 Regal Sportback. Besides standard all-wheel drive with active twin clutch and the V6 engine, the GS has a performance suspension system, Brembo front calipers, a sport-tuned suspension, 19-inch wheels, a flat-bottom steering wheel, metal pedals, front and rear park assist, and lane change alert with blind-spot monitoring. Package options include the Driver Confidence Package II ($1,690) that adds a head-up display and the same safety features as on the Essence's package, the Sights and Sounds Package ($945), and an Appearance Package ($485) that adds LED headlights with automatic leveling, cornering lights, and wireless charging.

CarsDirect Tip

The Preferred II trim gives shoppers the option of all-wheel drive and two package options we think customers want. That brings your final cost to about $35,000, or within the range of the competing Acura TLX.
