First Drive: 2018 Buick Regal GS is the Friday Night Lights of Sport Sedans…

Minor complaining time.

Why, oh why does the Buick Regal GS come with Brembo brakes, sport buckets, a 310-hp V6 awith sporty pretenses, yet, there are no paddle shifters?

The Opel Insignia GSi comes with paddle shifters, the Holden-not-a-Commodore VXR comes with paddles shifters. Both the overseas models also get a 10 mm suspension drop and beautiful 20-inch directional wheels, the Regal does not.

In conclusion, the Regal GS is the Friday Night Lights of sport sedans: so close, yet so far.

Now watch our man in Detroit drive one for the first time…
