TCC’s Bottom Line
Roomy and pleasant to drive, the 2018 Buick Regal is a crossover in car clothing. Only poor crash test scores keep the Grand Cherokee down, as this talented family hauler offers luxury and utility and buyers can choose off-road capability, track talent, or even more luxury. Unless you really need three rows of seats, the 2018 Subaru Outback is the sensible SUV alternative.
