About 2011 Buick Regal

The Buick Regal 2011 model is one of the frontrunners for European mid-sized vehicles and is the brand’s answer to Honda’s Accord, Ford’s Mondeo, and Volkswagen Passat in the market. This particular vehicle model was rebranded for both US and China. This Buick has several offerings for anyone looking around for the best mid-sized family sedan that offers a luxurious feel.

In comparison to its closest competitors, the 2011 Buick Regal is a classier option for your family. The build and styling is very aesthetically appealing and has retained most of the styling elements of the Insignia. Changes were incorporated on a few of the physical features for the vehicle model, such as the taillight bulbs, grille, side mirror glass, and the badging. It comes with a standard 18-inch wheel but you can also switch to a 19-inch if you like. Everything else is pretty much standard for a Buick vehicle model.

The 2011 Buick Regal comes with surfaces made out of soft-touch plastic and an elegant finish, making it more high class in quality and appearance as other mid-sized family sedan in the market. It is also a good commodity offering passenger space of up to 97 cubic feet and a 14-foot cubic trunk. The rear seat offers a 37.3-inch leg room that is much better than its competitors in the market, such as Honda Accord and Audi A4.

You can also avail of up to 6-speed automatic transmissions for both types of engine.

Con’s of 2011 Buick Regal

*The 2011 Buick Regal is pegged to start at a price range of about $30,000 bracket, which is quite expensive as compared to other mid-sized family sedan.

The Bottom Line

General Motors is indeed posing the new 2011 Buick regal model as the newest soft-luxury vehicle from the brand, competing against some other well known brand such as Lexus, Volvo, Acura, and Lincoln. The only downside to introducing Buick as a new model, instead of sticking with Saturn would be a possible confusion among brand loyalists who might still be used to the earlier model.
