Buick is generally not known for its sporty cars but that all might change with the introduction of the Regal. This vehicle combines luxury with sportiness at an affordable price. There is currently just one model available; the CXL, which is the upper level trim and the option to select the standard or the more powerful turbo engine.

The turbo charged engine is a four cylinder that features Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing. The turbo charged version outputs 220 hp and 258 lb feet of torque. A drive control system is in place which allows the driver to select from various driving modes. Standard is great for every day driving, Tour for long distances and Sport for a performance oriented drive.

Mileage for the turbo model stands at 28 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the interstate. The standard engine offers more than enough power for regular driving; the more powerful engine is only suggested for those who want extra power. The Regal Turbo is equipped with additional extras including ultrasonic rear parking assist and available 19″ wheels.

The Regal is well insulated and stays ultra quiet, even at high speeds. High quality materials have been used throughout and the dashboards and instruments are all intuitive and easy to use. There are two options available when it comes to interior colors; beige and brown.

The backseats are quite spacious while the front seats are comfortable and easy to sink into. The CXL model is equipped with features such as a stereo system with a USB port, Bluetooth and satellite radio. Trunk space is a bit on the small side at 14.2 cubic feet but can be easily expanded when you adjust the back seats.

Buick engineers have included a large number of features in order to maximize protection. Safety belts feature pre-tensioners and side impact beams absorb force during an accident. The Regal garnered high scores during safety tests conducted by the IIHS. Used GMC St Louis offers great deals on vehicles in the St Louis area.
