Ahhh, the Buick Regal.
Royalty abounds in this five-seat luxury vehicle whose 2019 model sports the addition Avenir trim, previously reserved for the Enclave and LaCrosse. Soothing surfaces, warm wood tones, signature styling, premium wheels, and a power moonroof are just a few of the amenities that landed Regal in the Avenir line. You’re welcome, drivers.
The 2019 Buick Regal offers a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder for 250 horsepower, or a 3.6-liter V6 for 320 horsepower. Respectively, they’re paired with 8- and 9-speed automatic transmissions. EPA-estimated fuel economy ranges from 22 mpg in the city, and 32 for highway.
We asked some staff what they thought about the available features inside, and our favorite answer was: “You could probably just live in this thing.”
Inside, an ionizing air cleaner compliments the ultimate driving experience, supported by Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™, heated steering wheel, Wi-Fi hotspot, dual-zone climate control, and Bluetooth speakers, among other features. The vehicle’s safety package alerts for lane departure, rear cross traffic, pedestrians, forward collision, blind spot, and lane changes, and includes rear view camera, adaptive cruise control, and collision mitigation braking.
