2015 Buick Regal

Pros: Nimble, European-feeling driving character; unexpected availability of manual transmission; improved control interface with updated touchscreen system

Cons: Middling acceleration with 2.4-liter e-Assist engine; cramped back seat; GS model rides more firmly than other Regals

CG Says: The 2015 Buick Regal sees a couple changes of note: the OnStar communications system adds 4G LTE Internet connectivity with a Wi-Fi hotspot, and the IntelliLink infotainment system now includes Text Messaging Alerts along with Siri Eyes Free functionality for Apple iPhone users. Regal is arguably the sportiest car to come from Buick in more than two decades. Its European-flavored driving experience might be off-putting to brand traditionalists, but it surely will appeal to those who might not otherwise have considered a Buick. The Regal GS model is an interesting take on the factory-tuned performance car. It delivers solid handling with little sacrifice to overall refinement.
