Buick Regal Sportback Reportedly the Next Buick Vehicle to Receive an Avenir Model
So far, Buick’s Avenir line of luxury vehicles has been a massive success. With Avenir trim levels for both the Enclave and the LaCrosse, Buick’s new sub-brand is set to expand as even more motorists choose to select the Avenir trim level as their model of choice.
Reportedly, the next Buick vehicle to receive an Avenir model will be the 2019 Buick Regal Sportback.

Entering its second model year, the Regal Sportback will add an Avenir trim to its existing model lineup. The Buick Regal Sportback Avenir will be slotted above the Essence trim, but below the Buick Regal GS model.
As the Avenir line is Buick’s premier collection of top-of-the-line luxury models, the Regal Sportback Avenir is set to receive some impressive interior upgrades. With a Sights and Sounds Package, the 2019 Buick Regal Sportback Avenir will include a Bose premium eight-speaker system and a Buick Infotainment System with Navigation.
Another package added to the Regal Sportback Avenir will be the Driver Confidence Package. This lineup of features includes many of Buick’s most advanced safety technologies, such as Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Alert.
A new feature for the Regal lineup will be a cabin air ionizer. This feature won’t be exclusive to the Regal Sportback’s Avenir trim, as it will also be included with the model’s Essence and GS trims.

Powering this new addition to the Buick Regal Sportback family is a 2.0-liter turbo LTG four-cylinder engine, which comes paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Unfortunately, it does not appear that AWD will be an option for the Regal Sportback Avenir, at least not for the 2019 model year.
Even though the 2019 Buick Regal Sportback is set to receive the Avenir treatment, its station wagon-based cousin, the Buick Regal TourX, is reportedly not receiving the same treatment just yet. However, Buick hasn’t ruled out the possibility of a Buick Regal TourX Avenir model in the future. For the time being, Buick fans will have the 2019 Buick Regal Sportback Avenir to look forward to.
