What You Will Like

The Buick Regal's chassis tuning is aimed directly at luxury sedans from European manufacturers such as Audi and BMW. As a result, the Regal features a smooth, quiet ride, a powerful 2.0L turbo engine and more rear legroom than its rivals with an astounding 60 cubic feet of storage space with the rear seats folded down.

The Regal Sportback, being relatively unique in the segment, makes for a good value in the segment. Other options, such as the Kia Stinger, starting at around $32,000 and European manufactures, like the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe and Audi A5 Sportback both start at well over $40,000.

What's New For 2019

The Buick Regal enters into 2019 with relatively few changes. The up-market Avenir model is now available, while several new interior colors also make their debut, as do a new interior air cleaner and new 19-inch aluminum wheel options.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 6 Years / 70,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 6 Years / 70,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


The 2019 Buick Regal has left its sedan past behind. The current Regal comes in hatchback and wagon guise, and delivers either with confident road manners and satisfying handling.

A new range-topping Avenir trim level has joined the lineup for the 2019 model year, fitted with special upholstery, unique 19-inch wheels, and more standard equipment.

Regal Sportback hatchbacks are offered in six trim levels: base, Preferred, Preferred II, Essence, Avenir, and sporty GS. Regal TourX wagons come in three trims: base, Preferred, and Essence. Each is nearly identical to the equivalent Sportback.

The Regal’s turbocharged 4-cylinder engine makes 250 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. With all-wheel drive, torque output drops to 260 pound-feet.

Front-wheel drive models get GM’s 9-speed automatic transmission, but AWD Regals use an 8-speed automatic. Occupying a more sporty position, the Regal GS switches to a 3.6-liter V-6 that develops 310 horsepower and 282 pound-feet. Equipped only with all-wheel drive, the GS features adjustable shock absorbers, sport seats, and sporty body details.

Riding about an inch higher off the ground than Sportback Regals, TourX wagons are nearly a foot longer than principal rivals.

The 2019 Regal offers a sizable suite of advanced-safety technology, but only at upper trim levels. Essence and GS models can add a Driver Confidence Package that includes blind-spot monitors and rear parking sensors. Another Driver Confidence Package adds forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keep assist.

Neither the IIHS nor the NHTSA has crash-tested the 2019 Regal.


Prices do not include $925 destination charge.

Base Sportback ($25,070) has 2.0-liter turbo with front-wheel drive and comes with cloth upholstery, power windows/locks, keyless ignition, and 17-inch wheels. The 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen works with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Only two colors are offered: white and silver.

Sportback Preferred ($27,670) includes a power driver’s seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and auto-dimming mirror. Options include blind-spot monitors.

Sportback Preferred II ($29,770 with front-drive, $31,770 with rear-drive) adds foglights, sport seats with synthetic leather bolsters, a 40/20/40 folding rear seat, heated steering wheel, and 8.0-inch touchscreen.

Sportback Essence ($31,770 with FWD, $33,870 with AWD) brings heated leather seating front and rear, plus a power passenger seat.

Sportback Avenir $35,270) comes only with front-wheel drive, and includes quilted leather upholstery, LED cornering headlights, blind-spot monitors, lane-departure warnings, and 19-inch wheels.

Sportback GS V-6 ($39,070) has the 3.6-liter V-6 and all-wheel drive. Standard features include Brembo front brakes, adjustable dampers, drive-mode selection, 19-inch wheels, rear spoiler, adjustable seat bolsters, and active-safety features.

TourX wagon ($29,070) has 3.6-liter V-6 and all-wheel drive, with cloth upholstery, 7.0-inch touchscreen, and 18-inch wheels.

TourX Preferred ($32,670) adds a power driver’s seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, height-adjustable passenger seat, and auto-dim mirror.

TourX Essence ($35,070) includes heated leather-appointed front seats, heated steering wheel, hands-free power liftgate, and 8.0-inch touchscreen.


Both body profiles please the eye, but the wagon is a more familiar shape. The Sportback looks more sleek and disguises its hatchback well in a sloping roofline.

Chrome strips accent the grille and outline each side window. The chiseled nose suits this car’s sporty aspirations.

LED taillights and a lip spoiler round off the clean look. Avenir trim adds 19-inch wheels and a unique grille. The Regal GS flaunts more aggressive lines up front, coupled with sharper bodywork and 19-inch wheels, while the TourX wears tough plastic cladding.


In both body styles, passengers and cargo can expect ample space. Though the cabin looks uncluttered, it never feels sparse. Interior lines stretch from the dashboard to the rear end, making the cabin look longer.

Front seats are spacious, but power adjustments aren’t included in lower trim levels. Rear seats also are roomy and comfortable, even for taller occupants. The Regal’s interior is a bit of a letdown, though, with just average materials at hand.

Cargo volume excels. Sportbacks have 60.7 cubic feet of cargo space with rear seatbacks folded – a figure that approaches crossover territory. TourX wagons are roomier yet, totaling 73.5 cubic feet. Taller items might not fit beneath the sloping roof, though.

Driving Impressions

Regals blend a comfortable ride with decent performance. Though responsive and even fun to drive, coping well with corners, Sportbacks are more utility vehicles than they are sporty machines.

Buick’s 2.0-liter turbo-4 provides lively acceleration, without losing refinement. Reaching 60 mph takes about 6.2 seconds. Better yet, the transmission invariably manages to find the best gear for the occasion.

Performance feels even more intense with the GS model’s V-6, dipping 0-60 mph times below the six-second mark. Paddle shifters are absent, but carefully-programmed Sport or GS mode can hold gears longer.

The GS also provides sharper handling and stopping power. Relatively heavy steering helps deliver confident handling and maneuverability, helped by continuously-adjusting dampers. Though firm, the suspension is compliant. Sport mode provides good balance between crisp performance and a smooth ride.

Optional twin-clutch all-wheel drive balances power between front and rear to improve traction. It’s one of GM’s better AWD systems.

The Regal benefits from Buick’s intensive sound-deadening, including active noise cancellation. Foam in tires even absorbs road noise.

Fuel economy is competitive. The turbo-4 engine is EPA-rated at 22/32 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive or the TourX wagon reduces those estimates to 21/29/24 mpg. With its V-6 engine, the GS is EPA-rated at only 19/27 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined.


The 2019 Buick Regal has graceful looks and lots of utility to its credit. It limits safety equipment to top models, but it handles like a premium car should. The best value is likely to be found in lower-priced models, too.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
