The 2014 Buick Regal impresses reviewers with a wide range of standard features and engine choices. Hi! I am Jim Sharifi, Senior Editor with U.S. News Best Cars. In this video, we will take a closer look at the refreshed Buick Regal. The Buick Regal receives a more powerful turbocharged engine and upgraded interior and several new driver assistance options for 2014. These include Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic alert, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning. The Regal gets an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, which is decent for an upscale mid size car. The eAssist model bumps those numbers up to 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. The 2014 Regal comes in four trims and starts at just under $30,000. Most test drivers agree that the Regal standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine is powerful however some think it can feel a bit slow from a stop. Experts call the optional mild hybrid eAssist model powertrain refined and fuel-efficient, though they say it's slower than the standard turbocharged model. The six speed automatic transmission gets high marks for its well-timed shifts. Test drivers like the base Regal suspension saying that it offers a comfortable ride and relatively agile handling. Experts write that the 2014 Buick Regal has an even nicer interior than the previous year's model. They like the high-quality materials in the cabin and note that it has a long list of standard features for the class. The Regal comes standard with heated front seats and Buick's IntelliLink infotainment system, which features a full-color touch-screen display. Optional features include navigation, and a sunroof.
