The 2018 Regal design is getting some drastic changes for the upcoming year, offering new hatchback and station wagon options. The Sportback and TourX options are two new variants offered by Buick to add styling and versatility to the existing Regal, bringing European-inspired designs to the US to make driving more enjoyable than ever before.
According to AutoWeek, the new Buick Regal comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine under the hood, a power plant that comes on the two new models as well. This allows for up to 250 horsepower, and, when equipped with all-wheel drive, you can get up to 295 lb-ft of torque. The new models also come with either an eight- and nine-speed automatic transmission to improve acceleration.
“When the 2018 Buick Regal goes on sale later this year, customers will have two new variants to choose from — the Sportback and TourX. The Sportback is a hatchback in sedan’s clothing, while the TourX is an honest-to-God wagon that rides slightly higher than the Sportback with some cladding for the added appearance of ruggedness,” said the editors at AutoWeek.
The latest TourX model comes with up to 73.5 cu ft of cargo space to improve versatility, while the Sportback gets some added space thanks to movable rear seats. The new Regal also comes with a lighter design thanks to some intelligent weight cuts, especially on the Sportback which lost over 200 pounds in excess weight.
