  • 2018 Buick Regal GS
    2018 Buick Regal GS first drive review: six appeal

    The 2018 Buick Regal GS wears lots of letters and words on its flanks and in its cabin. Two you won’t find? “Gran Sport.” That moniker’s a relic of an era when rear-drive Buicks prowled the roads, leaded fuel their Muscle Milk. Today’s Buicks lean heavily on recently...

  • 2018 Buick Regal Sportback
    2018 Buick Regal Sportback first drive review: the crossover of cars

    The decision to do away with a sedan shape and offer the 2018 Buick Regal as a hatchback (called Sportback) and a wagon (called Tour X) is an odd one at first blush. After all, mid-size sedans traditionally have been among the strongest selling vehicles, while hatchbacks and especially wagons have...

  • 2018 Opel Insignia GSi Sports Tourer

    Hot wagons are a rarity in the United States but over in Europe they’re all the rage, outselling their sedan equivalents in many cases.

We’ve already seen the car in fastback sedan form, which we’re getting as the 2018 Buick Regal GS, but a wagon option, which Opel refers to as a Sports Tourer, will also be offered.

  • 2018 Buick Regal TourX

    Buick’s new Regal TourX soft-roader wagon offers superb value thanks to sharp pricing. Cars Direct has learned from order guides that the 2018 Regal TourX is priced at $29,995, including destination.
