Overview

What's New in the 2019 Buick Regal?

The Regal gains a range-topping Avenir trim level for 2019.  See the 2019 Buick Regal Sportback models for sale near you

Which Regal is the Best?

Buick really nickel and dimes you with the Regal's lower trim levels, and you even have to pay extra for accident avoidance tech on the upper trims. As such, we think the Regal's best value is found in the Essence with the Driver Confidence II package. It's comparably priced and equipped as upper trim level midsize sedans, but with sharper style and a more versatile body style. The new Avenir trim doesn't provide enough luxury equipment or ambiance to warrant its price premium. Find a Buick Regal Sportback for sale

How Much Does a 2019 Buick Regal Cost?

The 2019 Buick Regal Sportback is available in base (1SV), Preferred, Preferred II, Essence and Avenir trim levels. There's also the performance-oriented Regal GS and Regal TourX wagon that we review separately.

Standard equipment on the base Regal ($25,070) is a bit sparse with 17-in alloy wheels, automatic headlights, heated mirrors, proximity entry and push-button start, a backup camera, a manual height-adjustable driver seat, cloth upholstery, OnStar emergency communications, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, one USB port, a 7-in touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a 7-speaker sound system. Color choice is restricted to white, with silver and black as extra-cost choices. There are no options.

The Preferred carries a significant price jump ($27,670), but only adds an 8-way power driver seat, a manual height-adjustable passenger seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. You at least get access to options, including several more extra-cost paint choices. The Driver Confidence I package adds 18-in wheels, LED headlights, rear parking sensors, and blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems. The Sights and Sounds package adds an 8-in touchscreen, integrated navigation, two rear USB ports, HD radio and an 8-speaker Bose sound system.

The Preferred II ($29,770) adds the 18-in wheels and an 8-in touchscreen, plus dual-zone automatic climate control, a heated steering wheel and a 40/20/40-split folding back seat. The Driver Confidence I, and Sights and Sounds Package are also available on this trim.

The Essence ($31,770) adds heated front seats, a power-adjustable passenger seat and leather upholstery. Sights and Sounds is optional, as is Driver Confidence I, but on the Essence, it further includes driver memory settings and an auto-dimming driver-side mirror. With Driver Confidence I, the Essence is also eligible for wireless smartphone charging and the Driver Confidence II package, which adds forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control.

The Avenir ($35,270) has upgraded exterior trim and special diamond-quilted leather upholstery. It includes the Driver Confidence I and Sights and Sounds package, while further adding 19-in wheels, adaptive headlights and wireless smartphone charging. Like the base and Preferred trims, it is only available with FWD. Driver Confidence II is still optional.

Finally, there's the Regal GS ($39,070) that's equipped similar to the Avenir, but with a torque-vectoring AWD system, an adaptive sport-tuned suspension, an electronic locking rear differential, Brembo sport brakes, sportier styling than the base Regal and heated/ventilated front sport seats with adjustable bolster and massage functionality.

Is the 2019 Buick Regal a Safe Car?

The Regal comes standard with front, front-side, side-curtain and front-knee airbags, along with anti-lock brakes, stability control and AWD. Blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems are optional on the Preferred and Essence trim, and standard on Avenir and GS. Only the Essence, Avenir and GS are eligible to add forward-collision warning with emergency automatic braking and pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning and steering assist, along with automatic high beams. These items are often standard on similarly priced sedans, or at least optional on lower trim levels.

Competition

2019 Buick Regal vs the competition

2019 Kia Stinger -- The Stinger has a similar hatchback body style as the Regal, along with similar luxury aspirations and surprisingly sharp handling. Kia managed a more convincing luxury interior, though.

2019 Mazda6 -- In its Grand Touring and Signature trim levels, the Mazda 6 provides a more powerful engine, sharper handling and far nicer interior than the Regal Sportback for less money. It's not available with AWD, though, and is a standard sedan.

2019 Acura TLX -- Easy on the eyes and a more-than-competent cruiser, the Acura TLX offers lots of advanced technology and a strong V6.

Used BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe -- The Gran Coupe has the same 4-door hatchback body style as the Regal, but is a much higher-quality automobile. It's also much more expensive, so a used or certified pre-owned version is worth considering.
