The 2018 Regal GS starts with the same five-door hatchback body as the 2018 Buick Regal Sportback.

Instead of a four-banger under the hood, it wields a 3.6-liter V6 good for 310 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque.

Buick added sportier front and rear bumpers, side skirts and a rear spoiler.

The wheels are bigger, too -- 19 inches, to be exact, and hiding behind 'em are performance brakes with Brembo calipers.

Inside, there's a slick set of heated and ventilated sport seats, which come standard with a massage function.

A head-up display is optional, as is a suite of active and passive safety systems that includes autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.
