Buick is bringing a new level of sporty luxury to its lineup. The automaker is now offering a Sport Touring trim that includes special exterior design cues to make it distinct from the other trims. It will be available on the LaCrosse, Regal, Verano, and Encore this fall.
“Buick is reaching an all-new generation of customers by reinventing itself in terms of design, function and capabilities. 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,” says Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick.
All of three of the sedan ST models come with the special exterior design touches of 18-inch aluminum black pocketed wheels and rear lip spoilers. The crossover Encore Sports Touring also gets 18-inch aluminum wheels along with a rear wing spoiler and body-color door handles.
The 2016 LaCrosse will be offered in five other trims: 1SV, 1SB, Leather, Premium I, and Premium II. The base 1SV will start at $31,065 and the top Premium II trim will start at $40,145. All models come standard with the new IntelliLink system with Apple CarPlay compatibility, a rearview camera system, eight airbags, remote keyless entry, and remote start. The Sports Touring trim will also come with heated front and leather-trimmed seats.
The 2016 Regal model will be offered in four other trims: 1SV, Premium I, Premium II, and GS. The base 1SV model starts at $27,065 and the top GS trim at $36,490 with AWD.

The 2016 model will offer five other trims: 1SV, 1SD, Convenience, Leather, and Turbo. All trims come standard with a USB port connectivity audio system, a keyless entry system, and QuietTuning technology.
