I think Buick still suffers from the past reputation of being an old person's car or a land yacht but that's good news for those who know better. The Regal is a great mid-sized car with plenty of luxury and one of its best features along with all other Buicks, quiet. Unlike previous Buick's, the new generation across the board handles really well and with regards the Regal, the 2.0 liter turbo with 259 hp and 295 ft. lbs of torque has plenty of power, especially for passing (torque). If you get the available options you can get it with modern safety features such as cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, etc... And probably best of all, the price is probably going to be way less than say a BMW, Audi, or Mercedes. The leather is really nice. The seats are relatively flat which I like, however some others would probably rather have more of a cradle feel. The Premium has a fully adjustable electric passenger seat, heated side mirrors, heated steering wheel (I didn't think I would need this but it is actually nice in cold weather), dual zone air conditioning, 110 power outlet, rear air conditioning (not adjustable), garage door opener, and other luxury items you won't find in your typical Chevy, Toyota, Ford, Honda, etc... The 8" touch screen for navigation, radio, Sirius, Pandora, etc. is very nice and easy to use. If you get the upgraded Bose sound system it is good and adequate for most, but could have a little more power behind it. The back seats fold almost flat and there is no hole like you find in some other vehicles that limits the ability to put long items through, it is fully open. The trunk is a decent size as well. Other reviewers seem to say the back seat is small, probably compared to an Accord or Camry but it is definitely bigger than our previous Acrua TSX. I think it is adequate. The only negative I can think of is the lack of storage in the front. The console is fairly small and the front pocket where the power outlets are is pretty small. Gas mileage doesn't look good on paper 21/29/24 but we got 34 mpg on the highway setting the cruise at 70. If you have a light foot you will get batter gas mileage than what it is rated. Kicking in the turbo will cut the gas mileage but it sure is nice having all that power. You can save money and put regular gasoline in it, but it runs a little better with Premium. I think just about all turbo's will perform better with Premium. White color outside comes with tan seats (probably some you can get in black) and chocolate brown dash (and a few other areas), plus the added fake wood touches makes for a very nice 3 tone luxurious looking interior. Lots of soft touch materials as well which also helps with sound dampening. Ours came with a sunroof which was mandatory for us. It's about a $900 option I think. This 2017 is the last year of the generation which makes for a very good price. We saved at least 12k over a similar Audi, BMW, or Mercedes. You should be able to get at least 7k off of MSRP and maybe more towards the end of 2017. Demand a good deal and you should get one.

I have owned 2 Buick Regal. The Regal is a very reliable car. It drives well and is a nice looking car. The turbo feature of the engine gives it plenty of power to get out into traffic on a busy highway and allows it to go several miles on a tank of gasoline, making it an economical vehicle to drive.

It is basically the same as my previous two cars. Woukldn't drive anything else. It is also the first car where the seats are so comfortable that I can drive long distances without any pain.

Great car, great handling, great interior(Ebony/Saddle). This car rides like a luxury sedan but it looks like a sports car. The interior is just roomy enough to acomodate me and my friends but feels small enough for just me.
