Since a little visual makeover can't do anything wrong regardless of what carmaker we're talking about, Buick saw fit to refresh its line-up with the Sport Touring trim.
Buick made it available on three models: LaCrosse, Regal and Verano sedans with the intention of turning them into more design-focused choices.

“Buick is reaching an all-new generation of customers by reinventing itself in terms of design, function and capabilities,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick. “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.”

In essence, the models gain 18-inch wheels with machined faces and black “pockets" plus a rear spoiler on the visual side.

The LaCrosse Sport Touring comes with Buick IntelliLink with Apple CarPlay capability, OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot and remote start. Safety and comfort wise, eight standard airbags (including rear-seat thorax air bags) and leather-trimmed seats (those in the front are heated) are offered to buyers.

Those keen on the Regal Sport Touring need to know this particular version comes with standard rear-vision camera system, heated front seat and leather-trimmed front and rear seats.

As for the Verano Sport Touring, the menu includes dual-zone climate control, eight-way-adjustable power driver’s seat and heated front seats.

This range refreshment comes after the brand presented last month the 2016 Buick Encore Sport Touring, a slightly pumped-up version of the crossover known as the Vauxhall/Opel Mokka in Europe.

In the meanwhile, Buick has also been busy testing mules that will turn into the 2017 LaCrosse, which could signal an upmarket move from the brand. The new Buick LaCrosse will use the 3.6-liter LGX V6, which can now be found on the sixth-generation Camaro, but we'll wait for more official info to surface.
