2018 Buick Regal GS looks the business

Yes, Virginia, that's a Buick.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

The Regal GS is the most sophisticated-looking vehicle to come out of GM in a long, long time.

The emotional design is very reminiscent of the Audi A5 Sportback.

Under the hood is a 3.6-liter V6 producing a respectable 310 horsepower and 282 pound-feet of torque.

That is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission putting the power down to all four wheels.

With normal, Sport and GS driving modes, I expected this Buick to be somewhat of a moody runabout, but alas, that is not the case.

Instead the there isn't much difference between the three modes, resulting in a mere practical and good-looking hatchback rather than a fun corner carver.

There is nearly 61 cubic feet of space in the GS. If you're looking for utility in something that's not an SUV, this might be your jam.

The standard front seats are heavily bolstered and come with heating, cooling and massage functions.

The interior design is a little dated, with chunky buttons and lots of plastic.

Standard massaging seats on a car under $40,000? Yep.
