Not to be confused with Ford’s ST lineup, Buick’s Sport Touring models is all about show. The only exception is the 2016 Encore Sport Touring, which receives more power from its turbocharged 1.4L I4 Ecotec engine.
Each Buick Sport Touring model features 18-inch wheels with machined faces, complimented by black pockets to offset the look plus a taller lip spoiler in the rear. Buick says the Sport Touring trim was added in an effort to expand the lineup with more design focused choices.
“Buick is reaching an all-new generation of customers by reinventing itself in terms of design, function and capabilities,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick. “These new ST models underscore the importance of design choices, while complementing the safety, refinement and connectivity technologies that are drawing new customers to Buick dealerships.”
Like all 2016 model year GM vehicles, each Sport Touring Buick has standard with OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity. The equipment group also adds heated front seats, while the 2016 LaCrosse and Regal add Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.
Look for Buick’s 2016 Sport Touring lineup to arrive at dealerships this fall.
