Check Out The New 2011 Buick Regal!

June 4th, 2010 by

Have you had the pleasure of seeing the new 2010 Buick Regal yet? It’s a beautiful car. Consumer Reports has come out with their take on the new Buick Regal and I wanted to share that story with you. When you are ready to check out this all new Buick Regal head on over to your Cincinnati Buick dealer and check it out. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Who would ever have thought that a relatively compact, German-built, four-cylinder-only sedan would be sold through Buick dealers? Well, if you’re old enough to remember the Opel Kadett from the early 1970s—or if you actually remember the Kadett existed at all—then you qualify. Otherwise, the new Regal might come as something of a surprise.

The 2011 Buick Regal marks a dramatic change from the Regals of yore. Aside from the legendary Grand Nationals, Regals were known for their tufted velour interiors, floaty suspensions, and long hoods. The new car redefines the moniker.

The Regal is basically an Opel Insignia, GM’s mainstream family sedan in Europe. (It’s a full-size family sedan there.) Initial production will consist of well-equipped cars sourced from Germany; Canadian production and lower-level models will come later.

Our Regal CXL has the RL4 package with a power-passenger seat, sunroof, and park assist. It has the base 2.4-liter, direct-injected, four-cylinder engine that is essentially the same powertrain that’s in the Chevrolet Equinox and the four-cylinder version of the larger Buick LaCrosse. A turbocharged four cylinder will be available, as will be a manual transmission. (How times have changed!)

Our Regal stickers at $28,840. While it is amazingly close in concept and intent to the Acura TSX, the Buick costs about $1,300 less and has more equipment.

Our initial impression of the Regal is that it certainly can give a TSX a run for its money, especially if that run includes a windy road.

Well what do you think? It’s a must see right?!
