2018 Buick Regal – Refreshing or Revolting

There are high expectations from the 2018 Buick Regal after the Opel Insignia has won the European market in past years and after the many novelties have been promoted on the car market by now. As the Buick has always been a car somewhere between the Audi A4 and cheaper cars from the bottom of the list of luxury cars, there are no many things we expected to see how. But, we were wrong because new Regal is made to beat up the competition, mostly in term of the design and engine strength, with the very attractive and favorable price.


There are many changes in 2018 Buick Regal when it comes to the exterior design. Made on already know the platform, called E2XX, currently used on Chevrolet Malibu, the new Buick should get closer to the high luxury cars, like BMW and Audi. As the matter of fact, many details are taken from those cars, upgrading the whole exterior to the next level. A classic front end with the rhomboidal mesh grille, rounded in chromatic line is slightly curved, supported by LED front lights. The bottom of the front bumper has wide air intake with the rounded fog lights at the ends. The car has discrete lines on the hood and the side, while the rear end has an average truck door, with the thin spoiler on the top of it. The rear bumper has plastic protection on the bottom with the wide air vents on the both sides of it. There are also thin rear lights spread on side of the bumper. The chromatic lines all over the door and glasses provide the special feeling of luxury, and there will be offered aluminum wheels, too, for the same purposes.


After we saw all above, it sounds odd that 2018 Buick Regal will have a small 1.5-liter inline-four engine which sends 163 horsepower to the rear wheels and optional all wheels on the car. The reason could be the favorable price which Buick has to keep in next generation of the cars. However, there are some rumors from the Buick which say that 2.0-liter four turbo capable of producing between 260 and 300 horsepower in higher trims. We are sure that we should not expect manual transmission after the previous models without it.

2018 Buick Regal Price

Concerning all, we said the 2018 Buick Regal should be very attractive and interesting car, with the favorable price around the $30,000. It supposes to be made as for the US market as for the Europe and beat up the competition there with the luxury and great features.
