2019 Buick Regal Introduction

The 2019 Buick Regal has left its sedan past behind. The current Regal comes in hatchback and wagon guise, and delivers either with confident road manners and satisfying handling.

A new range-topping Avenir trim level has joined the lineup for the 2019 model year, fitted with special upholstery, unique 19-inch wheels, and more standard equipment.

Regal Sportback hatchbacks are offered in six trim levels: base, Preferred, Preferred II, Essence, Avenir, and sporty GS. Regal TourX wagons come in three trims: base, Preferred, and Essence. Each is nearly identical to the equivalent Sportback.

The Regal’s turbocharged 4-cylinder engine makes 250 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. With all-wheel drive, torque output drops to 260 pound-feet.

Front-wheel drive models get GM’s 9-speed automatic transmission, but AWD Regals use an 8-speed automatic. Occupying a more sporty position, the Regal GS switches to a 3.6-liter V-6 that develops 310 horsepower and 282 pound-feet. Equipped only with all-wheel drive, the GS features adjustable shock absorbers, sport seats, and sporty body details.

Riding about an inch higher off the ground than Sportback Regals, TourX wagons are nearly a foot longer than principal rivals.

The 2019 Regal offers a sizable suite of advanced-safety technology, but only at upper trim levels. Essence and GS models can add a Driver Confidence Package that includes blind-spot monitors and rear parking sensors. Another Driver Confidence Package adds forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keep assist.

Neither the IIHS nor the NHTSA has crash-tested the 2019 Regal.
