https://www.consumerreports.org - At a glance, buyers may miss that the stylish new 2018 Buick Regal Sportback is a hatchback, not a sedan. Under that exterior, drivers will find a competent and versatile car. This Regal has a suspension that impressively soaks up road imperfections. Its handling is responsive and capable, although this generation has become less engaging to drive than its predecessor. The old version chewed up twisty roads; the new model is happier on straightaways.
