The Buick Regal receives a mid-cycle freshening for 2014, including an exterior facelift with wing-shaped LED lighting, a slightly revised rear end and an interior that benefits from upgraded materials. The Regal gets a larger, 8-inch touchscreen with the IntelliLink infotainment system. Under the hood, a more efficient turbocharged 2.0L offers 259 horsepower and 295 ft-lb of torque, an 18 percent increase over last year's 2.0L. The engine also delivers an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. An available all-wheel-drive system is new, which includes a limited-slip differential that optimizes traction in inclement conditions. Finally, the new Regal features impressive new technology in the form of radar- and camera-based safety features.
Handsome styling; excellent turbocharged engine; hybrid availability; quality build; luxury interior; available all-wheel drive; overall value
The Buick Regal is sized slightly smaller than mainstream mid-size sedans like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord or Nissan Altima but a little larger than mid-size performance/luxury sedans like the Acura TSX or Volvo S60. At a price that's well below those premium brand sedans, GM is pitching the Buick as an affordable luxury car-alternative. With its improved standard 2.0L turbocharged engine, the Regal is now more powerful than many of its competitors. With a full range of standard convenience and safety features, plus a fashionable look, the Regal is a safe, sporty and comfortable alternative for families who see the mainstream offerings as a little too boring.
