All new 2016 Buick Regal is an average size, four-entryway vehicle that weds alluring game car styling with extraordinary street conduct. It's exquisite, refined, and makes a fantastic pitch for the sort of auto customers Buick needs a greater amount of - the ones who pay somewhat more for premium components and completions for an auto that is comparable in different approaches to less costly family vehicles. 

The Regal games all the hardware it needs to make it a persuading entertainer in the game car and extravagance vehicle world: a turbocharged motor, cutting edge safetyequipment, and a propelled infotainment framework. The Regal is basically one of GM's best cars, and some of that is because of its roots. It's basically a rendition of the Opel Insignia, an auto created and sold by GM's European deals arm. 

The astounding, sleekish, and firmly made watch out of the most recent Regal is one of the reasons we suggest this mid-sizer so frequently. It's the most athletic-looking vehicle in the Buick lineup, and it's totally disposed of any Buick signals from the past. This time it shake and move down its sides says as much in regards to its central goal, as the truant chrome ventiport openings that can be found on pretty much every other Buick, over a significant time span.                                                           Inside, the Regal is mostly intuitive and completely pleasing. Its two-tone wood and leather trim on top models is handsome but subdued, and the cockpit's been progressively updated for a smoothish integration of buttons, screens and new technology.

On the road, the Regal splits its identities into fun and frugal. On the frugal side, there's a base model powered by a 2.4-liter, 182-horsepower four-cylinder. It's just adequate in power and in refinement; there's a reason it's been on and off again in the Regal lineup over the past few model years. Off the menu this year: the Regal's mild-hybrid eAssist model, which is only offered to fleet buyers in 2016.   We'd take both of Buick's Regal turbos, regardless. Whether it's the standard or the Regal GS version, both get a solitary turbocharged 2.0-liter four-barrel with 259 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Zero to 60 mph times beneath seven seconds and a sweet four-barrel snarl give this powertrain the gesture, yet in the event that you're hoping to move it yourself, the base turbo just accompanies a six-velocity programmed. 

With respect to the GS, it's the main spot to get a manual transmission now, and the main Regal to have the three-mode Interactive Drive Control systems. It's not a 3-Series, or an ATS, in the level of taking care of accuracy it offers, however the GS remains our most loved Regal on the grounds that it grants a lively vibe without giving up its all around controlled ride, though at a value that covers some genuines port sedans.

The Regal also can be fitted with an all-wheel-drive system, with an electronically controlled limited-slip differential across the rear wheels. The reasonably taut feel baked into the Regal's ride and handling is still here--it has the muted damping of a good German sedan, and electric power steering that avoids the heavyweight cliches. With all-wheel drive, there's more effective power delivery out of corners--and maybe more interest from shoppers.

The Buick Regal is comfortable for four adults, assuming the rear passengers aren't too large, as the car is slightly smaller than some other mid-size cars in the segment. It doesn't come up shy in front-seat space; the Regal's back seat may be rated for three people, but two adults could have trouble fitting in, if they're very tall.

As for safety, Buick's earned great crash-test scores with the Regal in the past. It has a standard rear view camera and on the GS, front and rear parking sensors, and adds optional adaptive cruise control,  a lane-departure warning system, and a forward-collision warning system.blind-spot monitors, 
Bringing the Regal's infotainment system another step forward, Buick recently upgraded the available Intelli Link system to a simpler, more brightly colored interface based on Cadillac's CUE, without its haptic feedback but also without the Regal's old knob-style controllers. The touchscreen interface allows users to reconfigure the home screen, to choose up to 60 favorites across its suite of applications, and to store up to a thousand contacts--while integrating smartphone-based streaming audio and accessing navigation with natural-voice commands. Bose audio tops off the package.

As an assist to the touchscreen interface, the Regal sports a 4.2-inch screen tucked in between its gauges, to display info from the available nav system, phone, audio system, and vehicle. On the Regal GS, the center of the gauge cluster swaps out for an 8.0-inch LCD screen with customizable looks for different driving modes. The Regal also has an option for 4G LTE connectivity via OnStar, and can turn itself into a WiFi hotspot.
