The 2011 Buick Regal’s sleek design blends the sweeping silhouette and proportions of a coupe in a package that suggests motion from all angles.
Great attention to detail complements that aggressive styling, with Buick’s signature design cues, such as the waterfall grille, select use of chrome trim and superior fit and finish of the exterior panels.
Regal’s performance-oriented spirit is conveyed in sleek, sculpted body-side detail and aggressive headlamps that further suggest motion. Eighteen-inch wheels are standard.
The 2011 Buick Regal’s firm, highly bolstered seats were benchmarked against the top import competitors for comfort and support. a new era in Buick design is also seen in the satin metallic, piano black and new, Kibo-patterned interior trim materials. Kibo is a rich, dark, progressively grained wood that lends an international flair to the Regal.
With its all-four-cylinder powertrain, the Regal relies on the excellent horsepower-per-liter ratio of the Ecotec engine family to deliver smart, on-demand performance that is also very efficient.
Both the standard 2.4L engine and the available 2.0L turbo use Direct Injection technology to optimize performance, reduce emissions and maximize fuel efficiency. Distinct, uniquely calibrated six-speed automatic transmissions are paired with each engine.
Interactive Drive Control System chassis technology (available on models with the available 2.0L turbo engine) offers enhanced vehicle stability and greater driving safety. Chassis settings are adjustable by the driver, with Normal, Tour and Sport.
