Over the years, Buick has been working on transforming its image. As such, the automaker comes out with new surprises every year. This year’s surprise is that the 2018 Buick Regal is going to be featured as both a station wagon and a hatchback. Explore the 2018 Buick Regal Sportback and TourX to see why everyone is so excited.

Body Style

The 2018 Buick Regal Sportback is a hatchback that functions very similarly to a sedan, but the TourX is a much more traditional station wagon. As far as appearance is concerned, the TourX is a bit more rugged than the flashier Sportback.

Engine

When it comes to the engine, both models feature the same turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that gets 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. However, the all-wheel drive model pushed the torque up to 295 lb-ft. In addition, the all-wheel drive models come with an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the front-wheel drive models come with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Technology

As for technology, there are plenty of great standard features. A 7-inch color touchscreen is standard, as is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Forever paving the way with new, innovative models, new reports say that Buick will continue to evolve their brand by putting out four, stunning new models in the near future, likely aimed at a younger audience of drivers.

Right now, Buick is launching their new Cascada midsize convertible, all the while working on the advertising message for the Envision midsize crossover, which you can expect to see at dealerships this summer.

Plus, a redesigned full-size LaCrosse sedan will be revealed around that time, followed up by the next Buick Encore in the fall. With each of these, drivers will find an entirely new, stylish tone from the brand.
