Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

By Aaron Bragman

CARS.COM — Buick's rising sales in the United States are no accident — GM's "premium" brand has benefited from updating its SUVs right when the market is super-hot for them. But the brand isn't letting its more traditional sedan offerings get stale: The Lacrosse full-size sedan was redesigned last year, and this year the Regal is all-new, as well.

The 2018 Regal is bigger, smoother, dramatically better looking and meant to go toe-to-toe with premium mid-size sedans from brands like Acura, Audi and Lincoln. While their market may not be as hot as crossovers, these are still important cars for their brands, which makes the mediocrity of the new Regal Sportback all the more confusing.

Hot Looks

The new model made a splash when it arrived at the 2017 New York International Auto Show earlier this year, with its dramatically low, swoopy styling that impressed everyone who laid eyes on it. And it does indeed look fantastic — there isn't a bad angle viewed from the outside. The hatchback design allows for an interesting combination of utility and style, preserving the backseat airspace for passenger headroom while allowing owners to drop the rear seats and open up a cavernous floorspace that can swallow an entire bicycle with the front wheel still attached. It's a sharp design, modern and sophisticated, and it's sure to turn more than a few heads.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
