Buick has gone public with reveal dates for two, all-new products this year, but both have been captured testing ahead of their respective launches.
New photos show the 2018 Buick Regal and 2018 Buick Enclave testing as a pair with typical Michigan manufacturer plates. The shapes mimic what we’ve seen from 2018 Enclave and Regal prototypes, so there’s no denying these are Buicks. They were also seen with a 2017 Buick LaCrosse keeping them company.
The 2018 Buick Regal is expected to drop its four-door sedan layout for a five-door hatch orientation, making it a carbon copy of the 2017 Opel Insignia Grand Sport. Although not seen here, the 2018 Regal hatchback is expected to be joined by a wagon variant, also a copy of the 2017 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer.
The Enclave is shrouded in a bit more mystery, though, we can make some educated guesses. The 2018 Enclave will retain its full-size layout via the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse, but we expect the latest Buick design to grace the CUV, as seen in the teaser image provided by Buick.
Four-cylinder and V6 engines are likely candidates and we know for sure the all-new Enclave will be the first vehicle to receive the Avenir sub-brand treatment in North America.
The 2018 Buick Regal will be revealed on April 4, while the 2018 Buick Enclave will show face at an event ahead of the 2017 New York International Auto Show on April 11.
