Great Car for the Money
August 12, 2018
I bought my 2017 Regal Turbo used a few months ago, and for $16,000 it's a pretty darn good car! The exterior styling has gotten many compliments from friends and strangers alike. The interior is both stylish and incredibly comfortable. My only complaint about the interior is that there are many little storage spaces, but most of them aren't really big enough to actually store anything, so things like phones, hand wipe containers, and sunblock have to compete for space in the cup holders or the center console. The controls take a little getting used to but aren't unreasonable, and there are some things like the climate controls and the trunk button that are brilliantly designed. I have the basic 7-speaker sound system, but it still sounds excellent. The ride quality is incredibly smooth and the cabin does a great job of keeping out noise from outside. The tech features even for my lower-trim model are impressive and come in handy a lot, like the remote keyfob, locator, and diagnostics, all of which you can access with the smartphone app. The turbocharged engine is quiet and very fuel efficient (I get around 40 mpg when I'm on the highway), but it certainly doesn't disappoint when you step on the pedal either. Despite looking tiny from the outside, the trunk is actually very large. All in all it's a great car with a lot of standard features that's simultaneously practical, luxurious, stylish, and even a little sporty.
