DETROIT — General Motors announced today that prices for the 2012 Buick Regal GS, a sporty performance model that aims to endear the brand to younger drivers, will start at $35,310, including transportation costs.

When the Regal GS goes on sale later this fall it will be the most expensive car in the Buick line, trailing only the Enclave crossover — which starts at $36,600.

With a 270 horsepower 2.0 liter direct-injected turbocharged four-cylinder engine, GM says the Regal GS gets an estimated 27 mpg highway. At first, the GS will only be available with a six-speed manual transmission, but GM says that a six-speed automatic transmission will be available later in the model year.

GM also announced pricing for the 2012 Regal with eAssist, which will start at $29,530, including transporation. eAssist is a $2,000 option on the base model Regal, which starts at $27,530. The 2011 Regal started at $26,360.

The Regal with eAssist gets 25 mpg city and 36 mpg highway – exceeding the highway fuel economy of the higher priced Lexus HS Hybrid and the Lincoln MK7 Hybrid, GM said.

The base model 2012 Regal gets 19 mpg city and 31 mpg highway, GM said.

GM sold 3,524 Regals last month – more than double what it sold in July 2010. Buick’s U.S. sales were flat last month but are up 27 percent this year through July to 110,472 units.
