Front-wheel-drive models and the all-wheel-drive GS have a nine-speed automatic transmission, while the other all-wheel-drive versions get an eight-speed automatic. Competitors include the Acura TLX and Subaru Outback.

Should I Buy the 2020 Buick Regal?
Both the Sportback and TourX body styles emphasize versatility, but the Regal also comes with a strong base turbocharged drivetrain and delivers a refined, comfortable ride. There’s not much steering feedback, however, and considering Buick’s premium positioning in the market, the interior could be nicer. Many active safety features cost extra, too, as opposed to being standard.
