The Car Connection's Take

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
A new GS flavor rounds out the 2012 Buick Regal menu, and leaves an even sweeter taste in our mouths. The 2012 Volvo S60 family shows that sport sedans can feel edgy without giving up their leading edge in safety, design, and interior interior comfort.
