Buick is back. Because while we watched their big sedans draw admiration overseas, GM is now hoping to recapture hearts in the heartland— especially those of younger buyers. And the all-new Buick Regal Sportback and TourX Wagon are worthy contenders. First off? Power is respectable. The Buick Regal Sportback luxury hatchback is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo engine that generates a hearty 250 horsepower, and if you’re looking for all-wheel drive, you only have to go one trim level up to the Essence trim. It’s a worthy upgrade and also scores you leather seats and 18- inch wheels.
Still, those looking for more can opt for the Buick Regal Grand Sport. You’ll enjoy serious performance upgrades and a lengthy list of features, along with a refined interior several price points above its class. This next level up gets you a 3.6-liter V-6 that generates a grin-inspiring 310 horsepower. You’ll positively glide along, and have plenty of muscle to back it, which will make short work of entrance ramps on your daily commute, and give you plenty of opportunity to exercise the burly Brembo brakes.
If you’re into wagons—and we know plenty of enthusiasts are—you should definitely consider the TourX wagon. The sleek elongated roofline will have you wistfully conjuring up wagons of yesterday. But these babies have all of today’s technology, along with a sleek, bold look. Overall, both these new Buicks blend power and elegance, provide cubic feet comparable to the crossover class, and offer a bevy of family-friendly convenience and safety features. We think they’ll make a lot of buyers who’d forgotten about the brand take another look.
