Its new hatchback allows for a good deal of cargo space without being a crossover. But will that be enough to sway buyers?
Every Regal Sportback, with the exception of the hopped-up GS trim, will come with a 250-horsepower turbocharged I4.
With front-wheel drive, the Regal Sportback packs 260 pound-feet of torque and a nine-speed automatic.
Opt for all-wheel drive, and the transmission loses a gear, but torque jumps to 295 pound-feet.
Standard equipment includes a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system (8-inch screen available, but optional), keyless entry and GM's ubiquitous 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
In terms of newfangled safety equipment, nothing is standard.
If you want adaptive cruise, automatic braking and forward collision warning, you'll need to move up to the highest trim and spend about $2,500 in options packages.
A base FWD Regal Sportback will set you back $25,915 (including destination), which is $2,000 less than what you paid for a base model from the previous generation.
The price rises to $32,655 for the top-trim Essence, with two other trims in between.
Only the top two trims are eligible for all-wheel drive.
Tick every box and you'll still be under $40,000, which is nice.
