2020 Buick Regal Performance Review

Scorecard

Performance: 7.4

The 2020 Buick Regal has capable engine options and a smooth ride, but plenty of rivals have sharper handling and better fuel economy estimates.

  • "We would not call this Sportback 'sporty.' The Regal swaps some handling prowess for ride comfort, and that's OK in this case. Overall, it's composed but exhibits pronounced body movement with every bump it encounters. The Regal Sportback GS should handle more crisply." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "The overall driving experience in the Regal Sportback honestly doesn't feel that much different from a high-spec Chevrolet Malibu, with which it shares a platform and powertrain, but the Regal doesn't advance the sport or luxury quotient appreciably." -- Cars.com (2018)
  • "This isn't a hardcore performance sedan, but it's quiet, comfortable, and sporty enough for most people." -- Autoblog (2018)

Acceleration and Power

You can choose between two powertrains in this Buick. Most models have a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an output of 250 horsepower. The higher-performing GS trim instead has a 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes 310 horsepower. Sportback models come with a nine-speed automatic transmission, and TourX models have an eight-speed unit.

Both engines provide ample power for most driving scenarios. Although the V6 is more potent, the base turbo-four will get you up to speed with little trouble. The Regal Sportback's nine-speed transmission can be slow to downshift at times.

This Buick earns subpar fuel economy estimates of 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. The TourX wagon delivers 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, and the GS gets 19/27 mpg city/highway.

  • "Power is ample from the standard turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which is comparable to upgrade engines in midsize sedans (such as the Honda Accord and the Mazda6) as well as entry-level luxury cars like the Audi A4. The throttle response is a bit sluggish and the FWD car's 9-speed transmission can be a wee bit slow to respond at times, but in total, the powertrain is a plus." -- Autotrader
  • "The Regal Sportback is powered by a powerful and efficient turbo 2.0-liter that offers acceleration on par with some V6s. " -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "It's hard to find a situation where the Regal Sportback doesn't have enough power. It gets up to speed quickly on the highway, and it produces a growl you wouldn't expect from a Buick." -- Motor Trend (2018)

Handling and Braking

The Regal focuses on comfort more than agility. Its suspension soaks up most road flaws. The handling isn’t bad, as the Regal has confident brakes and well-weighted steering, but most rivals feel nimbler. Front-wheel drive is standard in the Sportback. All-wheel drive is available in the Sportback and standard in the TourX.

  • "The ride quality is also quite good, but don't expect LaCrosse cushiness here -- the Regal still has relatively low-profile tires and a suspension tuned to provide sharp handling. And indeed it does, granting the driver plenty of confidence around corners and in emergency situations. The steering is pleasingly responsive and consistently weighted. Things get surprisingly spicy in the Regal GS." -- Autotrader
  • "Confident brakes and quick steering are also highlights. But a soft, comfort-oriented suspension and slow-to-downshift transmission take the sport out of this Sportback." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "Steering was a little overboosted for our taste, but accurate and easy to point. Above all, ride quality on both test cars was neither too stiff nor too soft, but instead balanced enough to soak up undulating backroads and provide a comfortable highway ride." -- Autoblog (2018)
