Following the success of the Buick Enclave and LaCrosse, the car giant has just added a new addition to the family that has a European design that says fresh and modern. So far Buick has only launched the Regal CXL models that are fitted with a 2.4-liter DOHC inline-four all aluminum engine that conjures 182 hp. This model not only has a standard six-speed automatic (Aisin AF40), but a six-speed manual is in the works and scheduled to come out later this year.
The Regal really does invoke royalty with its Opel stripped badging both inside and out of the four-door sedan. It also drives like an average European front-drive sedan, maneuvering potholes, bumps, and broken pavement with grace. Buick has successful positioned the Regal as a direct competitor to the Acura TSX and Volvo S60.
