Buick, these days, is NOT a name synonymous with driving pleasure, good looks, excellent value or superb quality. That is why we’re a bit surprised that something like this 2018 Buick Regal GS has come off their production lines. This thing is to all intents and purposes a great mid-range sports sedan.
2018 Buick Regal GS seems to have the perfect recipe for a hot sedan you can daily drive, beat the hell out of, and just enjoy. It doesn’t overdo it with power, just 310 horsepower from a smooth 3.6L V-6, and it comes with nine-speed automatic transmission and intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD) with active twin clutch. And don’t mind the fairly large displacement. The GS has direct injection, cylinder deactivation and stop/start technology for optimum efficiency.

Chassis-wise, too, the 2018 Buick Regal GS punches above its 40 grand weight what with second-generation Continuous Damping Control (CDC) capable of 500 adjustments per second and Interactive Drive Control with GS and Sport modes plus Brembo front calipers. On top of all this, the car also sounds and look good. It has a standard sport exhaust and sport front and rear fascias, side skirts and rear spoiler, 19 inch wheels, and sport flat-bottomed steering wheel.
See what we mean by perfect recipe? Everything a keen driver fancies in a $39,990 is there. We dare say that, all things considered, the Regal GS delivers more joy for the money than a BMW M3.
