Editor's Overview

In its simplest form, the 2017 Buick Regal is a stylish and fuel-efficient family sedan with a bit more flair and individuality than a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry. Add all-wheel drive to the mix, and the Regal compares well against the Subaru Legacy and Chrysler 200 AWD, while the GS aims for luxury models like the Lexus IS 250.

Fast, small, sporty, gets you from point A to B faster than you would think.

Small, but quick, super comfortable for a small sized mildly sporty vehicle. It does not lack in get up and go, and it retains great gas mileage for a car that is this fun to drive as a commuter. The only thing I dislike about the car is how uncomfortable it is to have your arm out the window while you drive because the top of the door is so thin.

- Zach D

It has a lot a value but a reasonable price.

I love the looks and how it handles when driving. It has great acceleration with the turbo and great gas mileage. It's great with the backup camera for safety but it sincerely needs a beeper when maximum distance has been achieved. Also would be nice if there was a way to reduce road noise when driving with window closed.

- Martha D

It's perfect if you're looking for the combo of luxury and sporty at a reasonable price point.

I love how it drives/handles with a tight, sporty feel. However, it still has the comfort and luxury feel. I enjoy the technology it is equipped with. Only thing I don't like is getting in and out of the backseat... the back windows curve down such that you have to bend over too far to keep from hitting your head.

- Brenda D
