What Is the 2015 Buick Regal?

The 2015 Buick Regal is a mid-size sedan with seating for five that competes with the Audi A4, Acura TSX and Volvo S60. The Regal is offered in nine configurations and six trim levels, including the 1SV, Turbo, Turbo/e-Assist Premium I, Turbo Premium I, Turbo Premium II and GS.

What's New on the 2015 Buick Regal?

The OnStar communication system now features 4G LTE internet connectivity with a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot (subscription required). Additionally, the Buick IntelliLink system can read incoming text messages, and iPhone users can enjoy Apple's Siri Eyes Free mode.

How Does the Buick Regal Compare to Other Mid-Size Sedans?

Although the base MSRP of $27,990 may seem a bit pricey on paper, the Regal is significantly more affordable that rivals like the Audi A4, Volvo S60 and Acura TSX. Although it's easy to go overboard with optional add-ons, like a moonroof and advanced safety features, this near-luxury model deserves consideration.

What Features on the 2015 Buick Regal Are Most Important?

Under the hood, Turbo and GS versions are equipped with a 259-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. A six-speed manual is available for the GS. Drivers have the option of front- or all-wheel drive, depending on trim level. Eco-conscious commuters can opt for a mild-hybrid system in the 2.4-liter four-cylinder, which teams with an electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery pack.

Standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, LED taillights, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and the IntelliLink entertainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen. Available amenities include 18-, 19- or 20-inch wheels, a power moonroof, xenon high-intensity discharge headlights, LED daytime running lights, a Bose premium sound system and navigation.

As is required on all new vehicles, the Regal is outfitted with front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Front seat side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags and a backup camera are also standard. Available safety features include a blind spot warning system with lane change alert, lane departure warning, forward collision warning with automatic braking, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control with full-stop capability, and rear-seat side-impact airbags.

Should I Buy the 2015 Buick Regal?

This sedan's impressive performance, comfortable cabin and high-quality interior materials make it a contender in the class despite its less than ideal handling.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
