The rating applies to front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the Regal, which is expected to arrive at Buick dealerships this summer.

Standard safety equipment on the 2016 Regal includes a rearview camera and six airbags. Premium II and GS models feature rear-seat thorax airbags, for a total of eight standard airbags.

Other standard safety features include stability control, traction control and antilock brakes. Front and rear park assist is standard on the Regal GS.
