2014 Buick Regal Newnan, GA 2G4GK5EXXE9286010

Luxury vehicles are not what they used to be. In fact, they have more amazing features now than they did even 10 years ago. Brands such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo are making room for new and improved models from other manufacturers. When you think of the phrase luxury vehicle, you come to expect to see the abovementioned brands. However, one of the newest on the scene is Buick. That’s right. The redesigned 2014 Buick Regal is giving their sporty competition a run for their money.

It was only a matter of time before the Buick’s Opel division came out with something that felt like you were driving more like an Audi A4. If you used to think of older people driving these vehicles, once you test drive the new Regal, your mind will soon change. The new Regal features a 2.0L turbocharged I4 engine that churns out around 259 horsepower which is quite a lot of ponies from a car of this size. This engine is optimized to give you more power while still doing great on fuel efficiency.

Other changes that were made to this already stunning vehicle were updated controls, an improved infotainment center and includes more features that come standard with every new Regal. All of these changes and more to this vehicle mean that the car accelerates easier and its transmission shifts smoother. The engine also doesn’t require a premium fuel which saves you more money unlike its rival counterparts who also cost thousands more in price tag.

Imagine stepping into your vehicle in the morning to heated leather seats for both you and your passenger. Even the steering wheel is heated giving your hands a fighting chance against low outside temperatures. Another handy feature is the automatic adjusting mirrors and seat so you can spend more time doing what you love, driving. Light the way with the Xenon headlamps which light the road up to three time more.

The Regal has tied recently with the Mercedes-Benz C250 for second place. Move over BMW and Mercedes, there’s a new car in town. The Buick Regal is advancing and the company only sees bigger and better improvements for their already stellar lineup.
