Review of the Buick Regal Turbo
10 Reasons to fall in love with the Buick Regal Turbo
Here are some reasons why I love my Buick Regal! No more is this just a car for our experienced generation, but a car that everyone of all ages will appreciate.
#1) SLEEK STYLE:
The body style of the regal is sleek, smooth, and luxurious. With its sharp lines, distinctive waterfall grille, and sophisticated look, this car is bound to turn heads! If you want a car that not only is classy on the exterior, but also the interior, you want a Buick.
#2) LUXURY INTERIOR:
Buick has always styled the interior of the vehicle to speak for itself. With the soft touch moldings and high quality leather, this car takes away the look and feel of plastic pieces. You can not only see the quality that they put into their cars, but can also feel that as well. The wood trim details also add and carry the luxurious feel all the way around!
2.0L Turbocharged engine gives you more gusto when out on the road! If you have a bit of a lead foot, like I do, it is very easy to get used to the power that the turbo gives you! With 259 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque, I have no issues passing other vehicles on the highway.
#4) INTELLILINK INFOTAINMENT:
I now have my phone, my music and my navigation right at my fingertips! For being a first time BlueTooth user, I couldn’t get over how easy and fast it was to sync my phone and start listing to my music! Don’t want to listen to your phone anymore? A quick click of a button and now I can choose between radio, CD, my I-pod or Sirius Satellite radio which I have 3 months free! Plus, when you have Navigation, Buick now enables you to save up to 60 favorites which can include: Contacts from your phone, songs, artists, destinations, and even a generic destination like “Tim Hortons” or “Starbucks”! It will then show you all the Tim Hortons or Starbucks in that city/town.
Leather seats are where it’s at! Buick definitely uses high quality leather and cushioning when it comes to their seats. Along with having lumbar support, tilt, and 8 other power options, these seats have been extremely comfortable on long drives. Don’t forget about the heated seats! Having 3 heat levels is the ‘icing on the cake’.
#6) SMOOTH RIDE:
Built with the available option of AWD, which I have, Buick’s suspension system is perfectly tuned to balance the comfort of a smooth ride, with precise handling and powerful braking. Great for long trips or just to unwind on the open road.
#7) THE BUICK REMOTE LINK APP:
Imagine having the ultimate key fob as an app on your phone. With the Remote Link app you can not only start/shut off your vehicle via this app, but can also unlock/lock, check your fuel range, flash & honk your horn, send directions to your vehicle, schedule a service appointment, check your OnStar Account and much more! It is a neat little tool to use and is completely free for 5 years!
There are many new available features such as forward collision alert, front and rear park assist, lane departure warning and side blind zone alert, which help to keep you focused and to make you more aware of your surroundings. They do help with the safety of ourselves and passengers, but does not replace my own responsibility to drive safe on the road!
Buick has a great line up for warranty on their vehicles, When you purchase new, you also receive 2 year/48,000kms Lube Oil Filter Maintenance pkg! They have a 4 year/80,000km New Vehicle Warranty, and then a 6 year/110,000kms PowerTrain Limited Warranty! Everything to keep you covered if you have any issues on your vehicle within that time!
Along with having OnStar in your vehicle, Buick has now updated to a 4G network which allows your to hook up to WiFi right within your vehicle. It used the data from your OnStar account instead of the data off your phone. If you have a passenger that would like to use their Ipad for a long trip, no problem! Each WiFi account is personalized for each vehicle with its own username and password that you as the customer select.
I could go on and on about the benefits that come with owing such a beautiful luxury vehicle, but I would be here for awhile! As Buick has made changes to their vehicles to keep up with the demands of our technology driven world, I am excited to see what they come out with in the future. If you are at all intrigued by Buick’s lineup of vehicles, I challenge you to come in and allow yourself a chance to get hooked on this car like I have!
