Review

The new 2017 Buick Regal is well suited for people looking for an alternative to either midsize sedans or entry-level luxury sedan thanks to features such as a long list of standard features, an all-wheel drive system – a plus as many of its rivals lack one, brisk acceleration, and an optional turbocharged engine that offers a stonking power. All these for a reasonable price tag estimated to be $27,000.

That said, the new Buick Regal 2017 continues with Buick’s long history of offering an-almost unrivaled value proposition. But even with such impressiveness, there’re a couple of gripes that can hinder such a seemingly successful streak. The bae engine, for instance, offers a mediocre acceleration that might be a complete turn of for a driving enthusiast. The 2017 Buick Regal interior lacks refinement of a true luxury sedan. Loading luggage might be troublesome as the trunk has a narrow opening. And the fuel economy are rather middling relative to the available competition.

But if you can manage to live with the aforementioned foibles, then the 2017 Buick Regal will arguably offer you more than you bargained for. For one, there’s the optional 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that offers 259 horsepower available for all the models except the ISV model. With such a mill, you’ll be save from the standard lethargic, inefficient 2.4L engine. On the refinement front, the lack of refinement can be solved by opting for the top-of-the-line models but that will cost you an extra and thereby rip off the value proposition you thought you enjoyed.

While no one can contest Buick Regal 2017 strong suits, the market offers plenty of options as well.
