2011 Buick Regal Review

More about the 2011 Buick Regal
More About This Model

Please, for now ignore the car's name. Give up whatever associations you may have with the words "Buick Regal" -- squishy velour seats, lazy handling, bumper stickers proclaiming "My grandchild was student of the month." Just click and drag those descriptors to your mind's trash bin, because they certainly don't apply to this reincarnated 2011 Buick Regal.

Essentially a twin of the Opel Insignia, the 2011 Regal is without question a sport sedan. Considering GM's Opel division is based in Germany and the two cars are produced side by side there, this should come as no surprise. And this is a good gene pool -- the Insignia snagged the prestigious European Car of the Year award last year. But enough of that; the Buick Regal is here in the States to serve notice to entry-level luxury sport sedan buyers that GM's former AARP division is now looking to play hardball, not shuffleboard.

Coming into the sport sedan game, the 2011 Regal is suited up and ready to go. There are two trims: the mainstream CXL that's on sale now and a turbocharged version to follow shortly thereafter. But even the CXL (likely to be the volume seller) is tuned for responsive driving, and the engineers were adamant about keeping the donor platform's sporty personality intact.

Stepping up against the likes of the four-cylinder-powered Acura TSX and Audi A4 as well as the six-cylinder BMW 328i and Lexus IS 250, the Regal makes a solid showing. It boasts comparable performance to the TSX and IS (though it lags behind the sprightly A4 and 328i), a comfortable ride, a more accommodating rear seat, solid build quality and a much lower starting price even with its generous standard features list, which includes leather upholstery, heated seats and Bluetooth connectivity. All things considered, the 2011 Buick Regal should go a long way toward erasing old stereotypes and writing a new chapter for this hard-working car company.

Should I lease or buy a 2011 Buick Regal?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
