Five stars overall

"Good" ratings in all tests performed

The Regal comes with a standard array of airbags, and rear seat-mounted side airbags are available in the two most expensive option packages.

The Regal earns good, but not perfect, crash test scores from the Feds, and the insurance industry's given it good marks in the past.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) hasn't yet updated its Regal scores for the new model year, but in 2013 it scored a "good" rating in all tests. The IIHS hasn't yet put the Regal through its new, tough, small-overlap front-impact test, though.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awards the Regal a rating of five stars overall. It's given four stars for front-impact protection and rollover resistance, but five stars for side-impact protection.

For 2014, the Regal's body structure doesn't change, but its safety offerings are upgraded considerably. A rearview camera is now standard on all Regals, while the GS also gets standard front and rear parking sensors. That's in addition to the usual airbags, and the Regal's optional rear-seat side airbags.

The Regal doesn’t have much of a problem with visibility, and uplevel Regals do have rear parking sensors, with an option for front sensors. Still, some of its new safety options may appeal: adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, a lane-departure warning system, and a forward-collision warning system are all now available in the Regal.

 

Conclusion

The Regal gets good crash-test scores, with a slightly lower front-impact score from the NHTSA.

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.
