Just a short while ago, we gave a rundown of all that could be expected from the 2018 Buick Regal TourX. (If you didn’t catch it, you can find the link below.) Of course, this was just a prelude to our second unveiling this week, that of the 2018 Buick Regal Sportback. Let’s enjoy this first look, shall we?
2018 Buick Regal Sportback Preview
What is the 2018 Buick Regal Sportback?
As with the Regal TourX, the 2018 Buick Regal Sportback represents another new direction for the popular nameplate. While it looks like a standard coupe or sedan on the outside, there is much more than meets the eye. Of course, the elephant in the room must be addressed: what is the Sportback, and what does it mean?
To describe it simply, the sportback is a rear access port that opens up a wide and deep space, much more than a standard sedan would provide. Operators may load much more cargo with this wide opening than they would otherwise, allowing for the carrying of much more cumbersome items.
2018 Buick Regal Sportback Tech Features and Performance
The 2018 Buick Regal Sportback does much more than simply grab the eye. It also provides first-rate technology features, starting with the in-car Buick Infotainment system projected onto a crystal-clear 8-inch touchscreen. Apps may be purchased through the SHOP interface, while in-car wireless charging helps keep all devices operating at full strength.

Not to be outdone, the performance of the 2018 Buick Regal Sportback is also fantastic. Powered by a standard 2.0L four-cylinder turbo, the Regal Sportback sprints with the surge of 250 horsepower. Meanwhile, with two transmission options helping to provide seamless shifting and available AWD, the Regal Sportback promises to be a model that’s difficult to paint into a corner.
