Buick knows a thing or two about building vehicles, having been in the business for, oh, only 115 years. The lineup has changed a bit over the last century, and the current portfolio is as strong as ever. Recently, the brand launched the all-new five-door Regal Sportback, possessing coupe-like styling, a turbocharged engine, and loads of room under the hatch. Still not enough space? Then there’s the Enclave. The seven-or-eight-seater SUV boasts a lengthy list of safety equipment, high-resolution 6.5-inch interior display and a silky-smooth 3.6-liter V6 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Not too often does one hear a Buick described as sporty. But that’s exactly what the Buick Regal Sportback is. Introduced just last year, this version does away with the sedan body style, opting for a five-door form factor instead. Not only does this instantly give the vehicle a sleeker look, but effectively doubles the cargo space to 31.5 cubic feet. Fold the rear seats down, and the number balloons to 60.7.
Matching the performance-oriented appearance is a boosted four-cylinder motor sending 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels, mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Alternatively, an all-wheel drive layout is available as well, mated to an eight-speed auto gearbox and producing an additional 35 lb-ft of torque.
Sometimes, life just calls for a full-size sedan. No other segment looks quite as classy when done right, like GM has done with the LaCrosse. Redesigned in 2017, it debuted the modern signature face of Buick featuring a winged chrome grille and the return of a red, silver, and blue colored tri-shield insignia. Many luxurious appointments are found throughout the car, depending on trim level, including combination HID and LED headlamps, electronically adaptive suspension and perforated leather massaging front seats.
Weighing 300 pounds less than the outgoing model, the LaCrosse is light on its feet thanks to the application of high strength steels and advanced materials. For example, the sound deadening used is better at dissipating unwanted road noise yet is lower in mass. One engine is offered: a 310-horsepower 3.6-liter V6.
Families need not feel left out, as the Enclave checks all the important boxes. Awarded a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating by the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA), the organization’s highest crash test score, the crossover contains a total of seven airbags, a backup camera, and lots of accident avoidance technology such as blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert, and lane departure warning. The subscription-based OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot keeps child and adult passengers alike entertained on long road trips, while a companion RemoteLink mobile app gives drivers the convenient ability to remotely fire up the ignition, lock and unlock the doors, honk the horns, and flash the lights.
Under the hood, a capable 3.6-liter V6 similar to the one found in the LaCrosse generates 288 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, plenty for easy merges onto the highway hauling a full load of people or towing up to 4,500 pounds.
