The 2019 Buick Regal can be optioned up to include helpful features without breaking the bank. The Regal has value in the low-$30,000 range, and buyers have quite a few add-ons to choose from even then. We rate it 7 for its reasonable price and wide variety of available features. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
The 2019 Regal Sportback is offered in four trims: base, Preferred I, Preferred II, and Essence.
Base models start just shy of $26,000 and include cloth upholstery, manual seats, power windows and doors, air conditioning, keyless ignition, folding seats, and 17-inch wheels. OnStar with 4G LTE hotspot and emergency assistance, USB, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen are also standard at the entry level. Buick has added a neat feature that allows parents to set parameters for their teen drivers as well.
The Preferred II set brings a $32,695 price tag, 18-inch wheels, fog lights, three-way folding rear seat, heated steering wheel, upgraded 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, remote start, and ambient interior lighting. Essence adds heated leather seating, bumping the price up to $34,795.
GS models are a different animal altogether, with Brembo front brakes, adjustable dampers, drive-mode select, 19-inch wheels, rear spoiler, sporty body work, and active safety features. The GS’ interior is enhanced by heated and cooled sport seats with adjustable bolsters and memory settings. The GS rings the bell at about $40,000.
The TourX can be had in three trims, ranging from right at $30,000 to almost $36,000: TourX, Preferred, and Essence. These levels are nearly identical to the Sportback’s, with the addition of 18-inch wheels at the base level and the combination of Preferred II and Essence into one top trim in the TourX.
