Buick's cars aren't typically known for their track prowess, but as you can see, these cars did just fine on a winter rallycross in Connecticut.

The car proved quite capable in the snow, surprisingly so.

The car not only did great in the deep snow, it was very composed on slush asphalt.

Of course, a big help was having Bridgestone Blizzak tires.

Both cars feature winter luxuries, like heated seats and heated steering wheels.

The AWD Regal GS starts at $33,000 well-equipped, and while it is far from the ultimate luxury performance sedan, it does make for a luxurious wintertime ride.
