2015 Buick Regal
They include OnStar with 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, as well as IntelliLink with Text Messaging Alerts and Siri Eyes Free. The new features build on the vehicle-wide enhancements introduced in 2014, making the European-bred midsize sedan a smarter choice for customers seeking technology-infused performance matched with the brand’s signature luxury and refinement.
Regal wears the appearance of contemporary Buick, with cues that reinforce its low, wide proportion and convey an upscale ambience through technology. The prominent, sweptback headlamps are available in two versions, including halogen projector beams and Xenon high-intensity discharge.
The interior of the new Regal blends sculptural beauty and refinement with technology, centered on Buick’s next-generation IntelliLink infotainment system. The instrument panel center stack houses the system’s 8-inch color touch screen. It is designed for easy operation with intuitive controls and smartphone-influenced swipe recognition for easier navigation.
Regal is equipped with a choice of two efficient engines: the standard 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine rated at 259 horsepower and a 2.4L four-cylinder engine with eAssist light electrification technology, rated at 182 horsepower.
Six-speed automatic transmissions are matched with the engines. The Regal’s Haldex all-wheel-drive system is designed to make the most of handling and stability in all driving conditions. It is an advanced, fully automatic and on-demand system that includes developments in wheel-slip management and an electronic limited-slip rear differential. Base model estimated mpg: 25/36. Estimated starting price: $29,840.
