The Buick Regal is a compelling and sophisticated option in the midsize sedan segment. New paint colors and wheel designs complement the model’s already extensive features list. The base model comes with a 2.4-liter engine, antilock disc brakes, stability control, and 14.2 cubic feet of trunk space, among other useful features.
This sleek sedan is available in four well-equipped trim levels. You can opt for the base 1SV Regal which comes standard with an eight-way power driver seat, remote keyless entry, and Siri Eyes Free®. The next trim level, the Sport Touring, adds a turbocharged engine, and the Premium II adds front LED signature lighting, rear-seat side airbags, and more. The luxurious Regal GS comes with two selectable driving modes, a sport-tuned suspension with adaptive dampers, and a host of other luxury features.
The Perfect Ride for…
Value-minded drivers searching for a competitive daily driver with a solid foundation of standard features and reasonable cost of entry. The Regal combines the qualities of a midsize family sedan with those of an entry-level luxury sedan, so drivers get the space they need along with the elegance they crave.
Drive & Handling
The 2017 Buick Regal has sporty, practical, and efficient powertrain options that appeal to any type of driver. The base model is outfitted with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. EPA fuel-economy ratings for the 1SV base model are 23 mpg combined (19 mpg city, 30 mpg highway)*.
The EPA fuel economy ratings for the remaining trims are 24 mpg combined (21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway)* with front-wheel drive and the automatic transmission, and 22 mpg combined (19 mpg city, 27 mpg highway) with all-wheel drive. All Regal trims deliver a ride that’s smooth and remarkably quiet, which further adds to its luxurious feel.
Buick IntelliLink® audio system with Navigation
This standard system comes complete with an eight-inch full-color touchscreen, Bluetooth® connection, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, AM/FM/Sirius XM® Satellite Radio, Sirius XM® Travel Link®, and built-in GPS navigation on select trims. The IntelliLink® system has everything a driver could want or need—whether for a longer road trip or simply the daily commute.
This safety feature is designed to keep your vehicle on the road and under control during any type of weather condition, whether it be ice, snow, wet pavement or gravel, and other uneven road surfaces. StabiliTrak® comes with Traction Control and activates when the sensors detect that the path the driver is traveling on has abruptly changed.
Rear Vision Camera
This useful camera turns on automatically when the vehicle is in reverse, allowing drivers to see a live image of the area behind them. Along with checking the mirrors and surroundings, drivers can use this feature as a useful tool to aid them in backing up.
For those who are looking for a slightly different driving experience, the 2017 Buick Verano or 2017 Buick LaCrosse are alternative sedan options. The Verano is slightly more compact than the Regal, so it’s an ideal choice for those who need less space (but still want a luxurious feel). The LaCrosse is larger and has more trunk space, as well as equipped with a bit more high-quality features. Any Buick sedan on the market offers comfort, performance, and overall ease of use.
