Why the 2017 Buick Regal Should Be Your Next Car


Although classified as an affordable midsize, the 2017 Buick Regal features enough upscale features and high technology to turn it into an entry-level luxury sedan. Its elegance and comfort make it a contender for both an executive commuter or family transportation. If you need more reasons for making the Regal your next ride, here are a few.


Premium Interior

Even the entry-level Regal 1SV trim grants you such premium touches as:

  • Ebony leather appointed seat trim highlighted by Ebony interior accents,
  • Heated driver and front passenger seats for warming up on cold mornings,
  • And dual-zone automatic climate control so both you and your front passengers can set different comfort levels that compensate for outside weather changes.

Elevate your drive to the top-level GS trim, and you gain the following pluses:

  • Eight power adjustments for both the driver and front passenger to customize seating positions. Both seats also include two-way lumbar adjustments for making long trips more comfortable.
  • Racing-inspired front bucket seats, pedals, and a steering wheel to emphasize the sporty fun of every drive. The steering wheel also gets heating and a leather wrap to enhance grip comfort.



Infotainment Access

Standard on all trims is an integrated OnStar® Wi-Fi Hotspot that allows up to seven devices to access the Internet at 4G LTE speeds. This free trial lasts for three months but can be extended with a paid subscription. Control this and other infotainment features through the high-resolution 8-inch Buick IntelliLink® touch screen, which also comes with a three-month trial of SiriusXM® Radio and over 150 stations of commercial-free music, news, sports, and weather. If you prefer to focus on the road, use natural-language voice commands instead.

Pair your compatible smartphone to the system using Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, or Bluetooth® wireless technology. In the GS trim, high-quality audio springs to life from the nine speakers of the Bose® Premium Sound System (with custom equalization). The available IntelliLink® navigation displays turn-by-turn directions with three-dimensional renderings of roads and structures.



Whether you’re commuting solo or taking the kids to school, you and your riders will stay protected by numerous driver-assist technologies. Standard on all new Regal trims is a Rear Vision Camera that switches on automatically when you shift to reverse. The dash-mounted screen displays a real-time feed of what’s behind you, inspiring confidence when you back up. Available Rear Park Assist relies on ultrasonic sensors to warn you of potential hazards, and an available version in the front sounds alerts when you move forward. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert issues warnings if a car runs across your backward path, too.

The optional Following Distance Indicator keeps you at a safe distance from the car in front with the help of radar sensors mounted on the front bumper. If Forward Collision Alert detects a potential front-end collision, it engages Front Automatic Braking to stop the car, if you don’t react in time.

When you want to change lanes by activating a turn signal, Side Blind Zone Alert informs you of any vehicles that have entered your blind zone by displaying a vehicle icon on the appropriate side mirror. If you don’t activate a turn signal and start drifting from your lane at 35 MPH or more, Lane Departure Warning alerts you so that you can steer your sedan back to safety. These features helped the Regal secure a five-star overall rating with the NHTSA.
