Editor's Overview

Regardless of which 2016 Buick Regal sedan you choose, you’ll be getting a stylish 4-door big on value, luxury and performance. From its turbocharged engine to the available all-wheel drive, the Regal is so much more than the average family sedan. With Siri Eyes Free, 4G LTE and a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, the Regal is a technological tour de force.

The air conditioner and heat work great.

It's cute and cozy. I haven't had many issues with it so far. My window motors went, but that happens with any car eventually. I felt the price was fair. I feel my kids and I are safe in it. Overall I guess you really like my car. The ac and heat works amazing too.

It looks sporty yet classy and drives fantastically.

I love the car. Others also let me know that it's a nice looking car. We recently had to have one of the wheel bearings replaced and we were told to expect the others to need to be replaced also. I wish there was a bit more room between the seats for the carseat.

- Crystal P

I feel safe driving my car. It's gotten rave safety reviews

I have a leased 2016 Buick Regal, Champagne color. I have hands free and navigation in my vehicle. I love the ride. It's smooth and quite. I drive 100 miles round trip to work and it gets great gas mileage. It's a very comfortable & affordable vehicle to drive
