The 2014 Buick Regal isn’t your grandfather’s car. The brand maybe older but at the Regal’s debut at the New York Auto Show, the company showed off all the bells and whistles you’d expect in a modern-day midsize sedan.
The Regal packs a nice combination of beauty, brains and muscle. The interior is designed around the IntelliLink infotainment system while the all-wheel-drive has electronic limited-slip differential for better traction and the car is equipped with new radar- and camera-based safety features.
The Regal run on a 2.0L turbo engine with 18 percent more power in Regal Turbo. A 2.4L engine with eAssist light electrification technology is also available on the 2014 Regal. Six-speed automatic transmissions are matched with both engines and a six-speed manual is available in the Regal GS. Electric power steering is now featured on all models.
“The new 2014 Regal is more expressive, more connected and more technologically advanced,” said Tony DiSalle, U.S. vice president of Buick marketing. “Nearly half of new Regal buyers are conquests who are new to Buick and they represent the youngest median age among the brand’s lineup.
“The new Regal gives those discerning buyers more of the technologically advanced features they want in a modern luxury sedan, all with the style and refinement they expect from Buick.”
New front and rear styling, with bold, signature wing-shape LED daytime running lamps and LED taillamps were designed to give Regal a more contemporary and premium presence.
The Regal goes on sale this fall. Prices haven’t been announced.
