2016 Buick Regal OVERVIEW

Buick's premium midsize sedan, the Regal takes a sensible approach to luxury motoring. You'll find plenty of standard creature comforts and a robust selection of mechanical upgrades, all priced within the realm of less distinguished vehicles.

What's New for 2016

A non-turbo four-cylinder now serves as the base engine. The Regal also receives mild equipment updates, including Apple CarPlay capability. The hybrid-like eAssist engine option has been dropped.

Choosing Your Buick Regal

The front-drive Regal starts out with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 182 horsepower. However, most models are powered by a turbocharged 2-liter four cylinder with 259 horsepower, far more appropriate output for this class. A six-speed automatic transmission is used with both engines, and the 2-liter can be paired with all-wheel drive. Surprisingly, a six-speed manual transmission is available on top-trim models with front-wheel drive.

The Regal is available in four trim levels:

1SV

Gets the 2.4-liter engine and standard equipment such as leather upholstery, heated front seats with driver power, a rearview camera, and a seven-speaker sound system with satellite radio. Buick's IntelliLink infotainment interface and 18-inch wheels are also part of the deal.

1SL

Equipped like the 1SV, but with the more powerful 2-liter turbo. The newly available Sport Touring package adds unique wheels and a rear spoiler.

Premium II

Adds navigation, a nine-speaker Bose sound system, and a plethora of smaller upgrades, including a power passenger seat, remote start, a heated steering wheel, and rear parking sensors. The optional Driver Confidence I package furnishes blind sport monitoring, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and front collision warning. You can take the safety theme a step further with Driver Confidence II, which adds a adaptive cruise control and collision mitigation with automatic braking.

GS

Takes the Regal in a sporty direction with an adaptive sport-tuned suspension, adjustable driving modes, Brembo front brakes, 19-inch wheels, and more aggressive trim throughout. You can add 20-inch wheels with summer performance tires and even a six-speed manual transmission (n/a with all-wheel drive). The Driver Confidence packages remain optional.

Individual options for all Regals include a sunroof, chrome wheels, and ambient interior lighting.

CarsDirect Tip

The 1SV's engine is weak for this class and doesn't do justice to the rest of the car. We recommend starting with at least the 1SL, although the Premium II offers the best balance of luxury and value in our view.
