Buick Regal Overview

The Regal is a well-honed sports sedan with a taut and steady ride, somewhat sporty handling, and quick steering. Wind noise is well suppressed. The 2.0-liter turbo version we tested was quick, fairly quiet, and delivered 23 mpg overall. For 2014 the standard engine is the 259-hp 2.0-liter turbo. The nicely furnished interior has firm, supportive seats and excellent fit and finish, but the rear seat is snug. The optional eAssist mild hybrid got 29 mpg overall in the similar Chevrolet Malibu we tested. In addition to the engine change, the 2014 freshening includes a better infotainment system and available AWD on all trimlines.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
