When is the last time you put “sporty” and “Buick” in the same sentence? That’s about to change!

The 2018 Buick Regal GS made its world debut in July as a more powerful, sportier cq5dam.web.1280.1280 (1)version of the 2018 Buick Regal Sportback.

“This is a sport sedan designed for everyday driving, but one that makes every drive special,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC, in a press release.

It offers 310 horsepower, a V6 engine, and nine-speed transmission AWD with active cq5dam.web.1280.1280 (3)twin clutch. Its performance seats are heated, ventilated and — get this — massaging.

Nineteen-inch wheels are standard, as are a sport-tuned exhaust system and flat-bottom steering wheel and metal pedals. The vehicle has unique sport front and rear fascias, side skirts and a rear spoiler.

“With the all-new 2018 Regal GS, we set to make  a driver-focused, engaging and entertaining sport sedan without sacrificing the smooth ride and refined character expected of any modern Buick,” Aldred said.

The 2018 Regal GS offers a standard 8-inch diagonal touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, and cq5dam.web.1280.1280Android Auto. With an optional Driver Confidence II package, it includes safety features like Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Forward Automatic Braking.

Every Regal comes with a 3 month/3 gigabyte trial of OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, as well as 5 years of the OnStar Basic Plan at no additional cost.

With an MSRP of $39,990, the 2018 Buick Regal GS will go on sale in early 2018.
