There have been some big changes to the Buick Regal sedan—which is no longer a sedan at all. You might not even recognize the new 2018 Buick Regal at first glance, so here are five things you should know about what’s new in this car.
There Are Two Models
The new 2018 Buick Regal comes as two different cars. The first is the Buick Regal Sportback, a five-door hatchback disguised as a sleek sedan. The second is the Buick Regal TourX, a capable and luxurious wagon.
They Come With Strong Engines
Both models of the new Buick Regal come with a standard 250-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. The Buick Regal Sportback also comes in a GS version which gets a 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 engine.
The Cabins Are Quiet
With Buick’s Quiet Tuning technology, the cabins of the 2018 Buick Regal TourX and Sportback are peaceful, even on highways.
They Have Great Standard Technology
Each 2018 Buick Regal TourX and Sportback comes with a standard 7-inch color touchscreen with the Buick Infotainment system and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
Standard All-Wheel Drive on the Regal TourX
The 2018 Buick Regal TourX in particular is crafted for adventure, and comes with standard all-wheel drive so that it’s set to travel off road or on slippery pavement with confidence. All-wheel drive is also available on the Buick Regal Sportback.
This is just the beginning of a long list of exciting news about the 2018 Buick Regal Sportback and TourX. Stop in at Ewing Buick GMC in Plano, TX to learn more and to check out these models in person.
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.
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.
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.
As for technology, there are plenty of great standard features. A 7-inch color touchscreen is standard, as is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The fact that the awards are based on consumer ratings is just icing on the cake for the Buick brand.
“Earning this recognition three consecutive years indicates that we’re shifting consumer perception,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick. “Consumers now understand that great products and service is what to expect from Buick.” One of those products is the new Buick Regal, which wears an elegant exterior design over a comfortable interior and a capable engine.
In fact, the standard engine is a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder beast with 259 horsepower, yet it still gets 30 mpg on the highway.

Buick can hang its hat on being a top ten Consumer Reports auto brand, according to the neutral testing company.
The Consumer Reports evaluation involved road testing every vehicle of each brand factoring in safety and reliability, and compiling a comprehensive list of all 28 automakers.
Buick scored the highest of all U.S. brands and ranked number seven overall thanks to their restored image and more aggressive styling. “Buick has a reputation for large, cushy cars, and they’ve really reinvented themselves pretty quickly,” says Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing at Consumer Reports. Their revamped image vaults the Buick brand past Honda, Acura, and BMW.
This is a huge transcendence from vanilla slow-lane comfort cruiser, to feature-packed luxury thriller.
In a separate “top picks” category of the Consumer Reports, Buick Regal topped the sports sedan segment by de-throning the BMW 328i, which had reigned supreme the last two years.
Overall, Buick earned the highest percentage of Consumer Reports recommended models of any of the competition. So be sure to come to Ewing Buick GMC, and see our top-rated Buick lineup. Discover the Buick Consumer Reports for yourself.
Buick isn’t just a model for the older generation, and honestly it never has been! Buick has a long history of performance starting back in 1936 with the introduction of the Buick Series 60 Century. This model was powered by a 320-cu.in. overhead valve straight 8 engine. The Series 60 Century could run at 100mph which was a huge feat back in the 30s.
Another performance-packed Buick was the 1970 Buick GSX Stage 1. This track-ready car was powered by a 7.4-liter V8 engine which made a whopping 360-hp and an unheard of 510-lb.ft. of torque. The GSX Stage 1 was followed by the 1978 Turbo Regal Sport Coupe. This Buick set a sales record for the Buick brand by offering V8 performance matched with better fuel economy.
In 1984, the Buick Grand National was introduced followed by the 1987 Buick GNX. It is likely that you have seen these Buicks at the track. The GNX was an instant collector’s edition type car. The newest performance car in the Buick lineup is the 2014 Buick Regal GS. This sporty sedan is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is tuned to make 259-hp and 985lb.-ft. of torque.

When it comes to consumer advocacy, Consumer Reports is one of the most trusted organizations. In its recent round of testing, it found the 2014 Buick Regal’s luxury was on par with the likes of the BMW 328i and the Mercedes-Benz C250.
In the final results, the Regal finished one point behind the BMW and tied for second with the Mercedes-Benz. Imagine having all that luxury and performance for thousands of dollars less.
“The Regal is a thoroughly developed and satisfying mid-sized sports sedan that’s more reminiscent of a German sports car than the softly sprung luxo-barges that Buick was once known for,” Jake Fisher, Consumer Reports’ director of automotive testing, said in the report.
Helping the Regal score well with the judges was its turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that makes it more fuel-efficient and quicker, without requiring premium fuel. It also shifts smoothly and accelerates quickly.

A few years ago it was unclear about the future of the Buick brand. Known for its 65+ age demographic, Buick seemed like a choice for only the older generation. If you had asked back in 2009 what the future looked like for Buick, many would have said it would be extinct by 2010. Buick took 2009’s harsh reality and decided to change and refresh the dying Buick brand.
In the last few years, Buick has completely redesigned their lineup giving the younger generation something to be excited about! Buick is no longer and old timer’s brand, you will now see that it is a top choice for young families. With the introduction of the Regal GS, the brand has been able to capture younger drivers by offering style and sport.
