For 2014, the Buick Regal carries over with its base eAssist model, but both its turbocharged models--the Regal and the Regal GS--slot in a new turbocharged engine and an all-wheel-drive option for the new model year.

The Regal competes with the likes of the Lincoln MKZ and Acura TSX, so standard features are plentiful. However, the Regal's price has risen for the new model year as well; it's now priced from just over $30,000, up by about $1,000, while the Regal GS tops out at more than $40,000, as much as $2,000 higher than the 2013 model.

The base version is no longer the eAssist; a turbocharged model takes its place as the least-expensive Regal.

All Regals come with leather-trimmed front seats with a power driver seat and seat heating; a rearview camera; a leather-trimmed steering wheel; automatic climate control; cruise control; power locks, windows, and mirrors; and an AM/FM/CD/XM audio system with a USB port. 

The audio system and the Regal's connected mobile phones are controlled by IntelliLink, which now gets a larger 8-inch LCD touchscreen integrated into a much less complex center stack of controls. The touchscreen interface allows users to reconfigure the home screen, to choose up to 60 favorites across its suite of applications, and to store up to a thousand contacts--while integrating smartphone-based streaming audio and accessing navigation with natural-voice commands. IntelliLink also displays redundant information on a 4.2-inch screen tucked between the gauges.

The Regal eAssist and Regal Turbo sedans with Premium packages are both priced from $32,485, and get remote start; rear parking sensors; a heated steering wheel; and a power passenger seat.

The $37,830 Regal GS with front-wheel drive has the adjustable suspension as standard equipment and its own 19-inch wheels; 20-inch wheels and summer tires are an option, as is a sunroof. Also on the Regal GS, the center of the gauge cluster swaps out for an 8.0-inch LCD screen with customizable looks for different driving modes (Touring and GS). The Regal GS also offers the lineup's only manual transmission, a no-cost option. With all-wheel drive, the Regal GS' base price rises to $40,195.

Buick's latest navigation system, an option on the Regal, eliminates our biggest complaint with previous models. The touchscreen display makes entry of destinations much easier. You can choose a turn-by-turn navigation service offered through OnStar, which doesn't have any resident maps or POIs in the car.

 


 

Conclusion

Bluetooth and leather are standard; Buick's IntelliLink infotainment and navigation interface gets a bigger, better screen.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
