The 2018 Buick Regal Sportback was released in late 2017, so drivers have now had some time to experience all this midsize sedan has to offer. The Regal was attracting attention long before its release date and now that it’s been turned loose on the streets, people are really taking notice.

So what do the early reports on this car look like?

6 Reasons To Love the Buick Regal Sportback

The performance is hardly sedan-like.

The Buick Regal Sportback may be classified as a sedan, but it performs like a sports car. The turbocharged engine, intelligent all-wheel drive powertrain, and 250 horsepower combine to offer a unique driving experience for this segment of cars. And you can get it all with an EPA-estimated 32 mpg on the highway.

It makes you believe in love at first sight.

The coupe-inspired exterior design, with its dual exhaust outlets, available power moonroof and LED headlamps, and athletic stance help the Regal Sportback stand out from the crowd and complement the car’s performance.

It’s surprisingly practical.

The practical nature of a sedan can often take a backseat when style and performance are highlighted. But the Sportback remains true to its roots in this respect. A rear access opening allows for more than 31 cubic feet of cargo space that nearly doubles when the rear seats are folded down.

Luxury is an understatement.

The inside of this Buick is dotted with premium materials, available leather-appointed seating, and a heated steering wheel as just a few of the interior highlights.

It’s also as quiet as it is luxurious. Buick’s QuietTuning™ technology uses tech like triple door seals and an acoustic laminated windshield to all but eliminate outside noise for a peaceful and enjoyable commute.

Safety has been redefined.

Concerned about safety? The Buick Regal Sportback features the most advanced safety technology such as Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone, Forward Collision Alert, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, all backed up by OnStar®.

It’s driven by technology.  

A built-in WiFi hotspot and an 8-inch touchscreen display serve as the foundation for a range of technology applications inside the Sportback, including navigation, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, hands-free calling, and more.
