The Buick Regal was first introduced in 1973 and will be discontinued in the US after the 2020 model year. The Regal was a midsize upscale sedan, originally also available as a coupe, which transitioned to a liftback sedan and station wagon in a 2018 redesign. Recent models of the Regal are available in the Sportback, GS or TourX (station wagon) versions. The Sportback and TourX feature the standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine while the GS has a more powerful 3.6-liter V6 engine. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available.
Sales of the Regal have been steadily declining since its return to the market in 2011. Buick points to shifting consumer preference to crossovers and SUVs as the reason for this decline, however, the Regal has been criticized for its poor fuel economy, outdated technology, and cheap cabin materials, which make it uncompetitive in the premium vehicle market.
Consumers have also complained about defects with the Regal, including malfunctioning airbags, unresponsive or lurching brakes, a lagging Stop/Start engine feature and an exploding sunroof. Recent recalls of the Regal have related to a failing power-steering assist (2016); defective rear seat belts (2018) and rear brakes (2018; 2019); and improper welding on front seat frames, which may not provide adequate protection in the event of a crash (2019; 2020.)
