2011 Buick Regal Values

The 2011 Buick Regal is an all new car for GM’s Buick division. Based on the European Opel Insignia 4-door, five passenger sedan and dubbed "the Enthusiast’s Buick", the Regal is powered by a 182 hp direct-injection 2.4-liter Ecotec four-cylinder. A 220 hp, 2.0-liter turbo will be available in late 2010. A first for Buick in many years is a choice of 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Even with all this performance, fuel economy is estimated to be 18mpg city and 29mpg highway with the automatic. This new Buick Regal promises a high quality, sophisticated interior; numerous technology options, with a sporty ride and handling.

Although the Regal name has been used before, it's being brought back for an entirely new sedan that has very little in common with the previous vehicles of the same name. The Buick Regal is a sporty, internationally tuned luxury sedan that will go on sale for 2011. It is an all-new mid-size sedan, to be powered by a new generation of powerful and economical 4-cylinder engines. Regal models will only be offered as mid-range CXL and sporty GS models for 2011, though a base CX is on the way for late in the model year.

The Regal is sized slightly smaller than mainstream mid-size sedans like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord or Nissan Altima but a little larger than mid-size performance/luxury sedans like the Acura TSX or Volvo S60. At a price that's well below those premium brand sedans, GM is pitching the Buick--especially the performance-oriented GS--as a sporty alternative. That said, with a very full range of standard convenience and safety features, plus a fashionable new look, the Regal CXL is safe and sporty, yet still comfortable, alternative for families who see the mainstream offerings as a little too boring.
