2020 Buick Regal Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.2

The 2020 Buick Regal has some low-rent cabin materials and hard plastic surfaces. The infotainment system looks dated, but it’s easy to use. There’s also plenty of room for passengers and cargo.

  • "Never mind entry-level luxury sedans, which the Regal strives to compete against -- the quality of its materials and general construction trail that of midsize sedans such as the Accord, the Mazda6 and the Toyota Camry. Their top trim levels do a much more convincing impression of a luxury car than even the new Regal Avenir." -- Autotrader
  • The quietness and design of the interior are appealing, although its parts-bin switchgear and garish chrome highlights definitely detract. Details such as these, plus a notable lack of arm padding, chip away at the Regal's regalness." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "GM's love for plastic panels with faux stitching best exemplifies the interior quality -- fine to look at, less than fine when any other sense is involved." -- CNET (2018)

Seating

The five-seat Regal comes standard with cloth upholstery. Leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are available. The top-trim GS gets ventilated and massaging front seats.

Head- and legroom are generous in both rows, and little road and wind noise permeate the cabin. For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the second row, as well as a single tether anchor for the rear middle seat.

  • The seats lack breathability and the material feels cheap, but the cushions balance firmness and compliance well. There's a good amount of adjustment, including four-way adjustable lumbar support. Lateral support is average, and the armrest padding on the doors is thin." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "And indeed, the Regal is always quiet – especially considering that it's a hatchback, lacking the insulating benefits of a fixed rear bulkhead." -- Car and Driver (2018)
  • "Even with its sloping rear end, headroom is ample for a six-foot-tall passenger, and when sitting behind a six-foot-tall driver, there's loads of legroom." -- CNET (2018)

Interior Features

Standard features in this Buick include a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, four USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a seven-speaker sound system, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a rearview camera.

Available convenience upgrades include navigation, an eight-speaker Bose stereo, HD Radio, satellite radio, wireless device charging, remote start, and a moonroof.

It’s easy to adjust most climate and audio settings, thanks to the Regal's well-placed physical controls and a large touch screen. However, the infotainment system is a bit dated compared to the newer versions found in other GM vehicles.

Optional safety features include lane change alert, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, front and rear parking sensors, a following distance indicator, a head-up display, and adaptive cruise control.

  • Everything works relatively well, but there's nothing special, which you'd expect at this class level." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "The Regal Sportback doesn't have the latest version of GM's infotainment system, which started rolling out to Cadillac and GMC models this year, so the UX feels behind its time if you've been within 100 feet of the new one." -- CNET (2018)
  • "Simple controls that include buttons and dials for climate and audio, a large touch screen and voice recognition promise to make the Regal a particularly driver-friendly sport sedan." -- USA Today (2018)

Cargo

Both the Sportback (hatchback) and TourX (wagon) versions of the Regal have more cargo space than most midsize cars. The Sportback has 31.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and 60.7 cubic feet behind the front seats. The TourX wagon is even roomier, with 32.7 and 73.5 cubic feet, respectively. A hands-free power liftgate is available.

  • "At least the interior space is excellent, as the standard Sportback body style provides far more versatility than you'd get in a typical sedan. In fact, with a maximum 61 cu ft. of cargo space, the Regal can carry as much as or more than many compact SUVs can. The Regal TourX wagon has a whopping 73.5 cu ft. of maximum cargo space." -- Autotrader
  • "With 31.5 cubic feet of cargo space, the Sportback's trunk dwarfs any comparable sedan's trunk. The rear seats have a 40/20/40-split arrangement and fold almost flat, giving you nice, convenient options. These cargo advantages have no downsides, so why would anybody choose a sedan over a Sportback?" -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "The Regal's tall hatchback opening makes it particularly easy to load large items." -- Motor Trend (2018)
