The interior features a sleek, fluid design with a layered appearance on the dashboard that incorporates a quilted surface with chrome accents and wood accents. The large 8 inch screen dominates the center of the board and electronic analog meters are placed in front of the driver. The comfortable front compartments are divided by a huge central console offering plenty of storage space. The controls are logically arranged and easy to use in conjunction with the touch screen. As mentioned before, the second row bench no longer exists, but there are two comfortable chairs for the second row captain and the third row offers comfortable seating for two and three people in case of trouble. With its front wheel drive architecture, the standard 2018 Buick Regal sportback is not as athletic as its rear wheel drive rivals such as the Kia Stinger or the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé. As far as the brand is concerned, Buick is still present in the luxury and large markets, and continues to struggle with the perceptions of its past and former vehicles.
Exterior and Interior
The 2018 Buick Regal sportback deserves praise for its versatile and practical interior. The fact that this is not done at the expense of an elegant exterior is equally impressive. In fact, if you did not know that the hatchback is lifted, you probably would not even know that the Sportback had one. Viewed in profile, the new Buick Sportback looks more like an elegant sedan. With its majestic grill, athletic stance and elegant tail, we do not think it’s too much of a statement that it’s the most beautiful 2018 Buick Regal ever made.
The interior of the 2018 Buick Regal for 5 passengers varies from respectable to very pleasant, depending on the setting. Lower trim fits fabric seats and lower trim gets stuck with manual adjustments. All models have sunshades that do not slip. In addition to detractors, the even less expensive Regal Sportback features a contemporary dashboard with a 7 inch touchscreen infotainment system (or an 8 inch screen in the best equipped models). The best thing about the interior of the 2018 Buick Regal is its space reserved for freight and humans. The rear space is good and the rear cargo space is even better. As we noted in the Preferred Functions, if you fold down the rear seats, you will have a cargo space similar to that of an SUV. We put a full size bike in the hatch without having to remove the front wheel.
According to recent reports, the 2018 Buick Regal sedan power unit will be available in two different types. The basic version of the engine comes from a new 1.5 liter EcoTec with 163 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Another possible engine will be a turbocharged four liter inline 2.0 engine that could produce 260 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque. The coupled transmission system will be the 8 speed automatic transmission.
Price and Release Date
Although the official information was not extended, the closest prediction was that the 2018 Buick Regal would be launched for dealers in the second half of 2017. It is estimated that the base price of the sedan would be around 30,000 $.
