There’s a lot to like with the 2018 Buick Regal GS, but the mid-size sport sedan sports one feature no other General Motors vehicles in North America is available with. Those would be the AGR front seats.
The AGR seats, or Campaign for Healthier Backs in German, have long been used by Opel and Vauxhall vehicles in Europe, but the 2018 Buick Regal GS is the first North American car from GM to receive them. As we found out, they’re pretty darn comfortable.
Not only are the seats AGR certified, they also feature a massage function and also sport heat and cool functions. We’ll admit, they also look really great inside the car and fit the 2018 Regal GS’ sporting attitude.
As we proclaimed in our first look at the 2018 Buick Regal GS, there’s more luxury per dollar this go around. The seats are one component, but the materials are of better quality, an eight-inch touchscreen is present, a flat-bottom steering wheel is installed and a full heads-up color display is optional.
So, thanks, Buick, for looking out for North Americans’ back health. The brand could have easily chose a different set of seats, but we’re sure they’ll be appreciated by drivers all the more.
