2013 Buick Regal
2013 Buick Regal

New For 2013

The base 182-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine has been dropped. The formerly optional 2.4-liter with eAssist—a battery-powered electric motor that acts like a hybrid to improve fuel economy—is now the base powerplant. The turbocharged 220-hp, 2.0-liter four is the next step up. The GS, with a 270-hp version of the same turbo four, remains at the top and is now available with an automatic or a manual transmission.


Although it’s not yet Buick’s best-selling model, the Regal has become the center of gravity for the brand. It sits at the heart of the lineup—below the LaCrosse and above the Verano—and has the widest range of variants. All Regals are derived from the Opel Insignia and have a firmer, more-European-style chassis setup than you might expect from Buick. The Regal Turbo and the GS add driver-adjustable steering effort and adaptive dampers. The base Regal is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with the eAssist system (formerly a $2000 option), and fuel economy is an impressive 25/36 mpg, although the larger LaCrosse with this same powertrain does just as well. For those seeking more power, there’s a 2.0-liter turbocharged four that offers 220 hp and can be had with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The Regal GS has all kinds of serious sport-sedan hardware: a 270-hp version of the 2.0-liter turbo, deeply bolstered sport seats upholstered in leather, Brembo disc brakes, a lower ride height, a redesigned front suspension, and a standard six-speed stick (or an automatic at no charge). The big omission is all-wheel drive, as the high-output turbo’s 295 lb-ft of torque is an awful lot to send through the front wheels. The GS does, however, get GM’s HiPer Strut front suspension that mitigates, but doesn’t completely eliminate, torque steer.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags; ABS; a tire-pressure monitor; and stability and traction control are standard. Rear-seat side air bags come with the Premium II trim level or higher. OnStar includes crash response and emergency assistance and is included for six months.

You'll like:

  • Agile chassis

You won't like:

2013 Buick Regal GS Front Right Side View 1
There's a lot to like about the Regal GS. The engine is potent, the chassis is very willing to dance, and the cabin is comfortable and intuitive. One could make an academic argument against a front-wheel-drive sport sedan, but Buick has done as much as any other automaker to negate the inherent torque steer. It's unlikely the front-wheel-drive configuration will matter to anyone on public roads.
2014 Opel Insignia Sport Tourer Front
The updated Opel Insignia Sport Tourer has been caught cold-weather testing in Europe. This camouflaged Insignia gives us a sneak peek at what the Buick Regal's facelift will look like, as well as what a Buick Regal station wagon might look like.
2013 Gmc Terrain Denali Side View
Yes, the Chevrolet will always be the bread and butter of General Motors' sales sheet, but the shining stars last month were Buick, Cadillac, and GMC: the General's other brands turned in great performances in January 2013, helping GM secure a 15.9-percent sales increase over January 2013 (total sales were 194,699 units). Here are some of the winners and losers:
2014 Opel Insignia Test Mule Front Three Quarter 2
With the vehicles in Buick’s current range, people have taken notice of the long-neglected pseudo-luxury brand. To keep its new look fresh in the public’s mind, Buick needs to update some of its older models. The Enclave crossover was recently refreshed for 2013, and the Regal may be next in line as these spy shots show a face-lifted Opel Insignia testing in Europe.
Vauxhall Insignia VXR SuperSport And 1926 Vauxhall 30 98 1
Vauxhall, the U.K. wing of General Motors' Opel division, has done away with its Insignia VXR sports sedan -- and replaced it with the slightly faster Insignia VXR SuperSport. The key change is that the new SuperSport can now top 170 mph, whereas the previous Vauxhall Insignia VXR only managed 155 mph.
