General Motors plans to replace the Buick Regal sedan cars in the United States and possibly Canada with a sedan-styled five-door hatchback and Buick’s first wagon in many years, according to two auto forecast organizations and writers with information online.  We came upon this news when researching on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealer in Ontario.  In the Buick cars lineup, the newest Regal models are looking at being rebadged copies of the Opel Insignia Grand Sport hatchback and Insignia Sports Tourer Wagon.  Both of these were recently put on display and highlighted at the Geneva Auto Show.

Getting rid of the Regal Sedan in the New Buick Cars in Thunder Bay ON, is rather aggressive on the part of Buick as a manufacturer.  The market and consumers in the US and Canada are proving that they are more interested in higher riding vehicles and SUVs though, so the move is not really a surprise either way.  “Cutting the Regal sedan is an aggressive move for Buick, but not surprising given the market’s shift from cars to higher-riding and more spacious crossovers and SUVs.”

U.S. and Canada sales of midsize sedans and cars in and out of the Buick category have dropped for two consecutive years, and the segment is off 20 percent in the first two months of 2017 already, suggesting that the above trend is far from over, as more people still value more room in their vehicles.  Even single people and couples without children like to spread out with their things and would seem to prefer a larger car, a crossover or an SUV to a sedan of yesterday.
