One of the company’s best-known nameplates will march on without bigger changes in this case. Most likely, the 2022 Buick Regal will come with the same characteristics, featuring minor tweaks only. This seems logical, considering that the current generation has been introduced recently. The new Regal is very European in many aspects. It is pretty much the same vehicle as Opel Insignia, featuring only different badge on the grille. Expect to see the new model late in the next year.

Pros

  • Powerful engines
  • Attractive styling
  • Plenty of cargo space

Cons

  • Below-average fuel economy
  • Low interior quality for the price

Exterior

The current generation of the Regal came recently and it features lots of improvements compared to the previous model. First of all, there is a new platform, which provides some significant weight savings, which go between 300 and 500 pounds, depending on the engine, standard equipment, body style etc. Speaking of the body styles, there the variants in the offer – a fastback, sedan, and station wagon. The new platform also improves driving dynamics, though the new Regal still can’t compete with Japanese models like the Accord or Camry in this aspect. Changes in terms of base design characteristics definitely won’t come. Same goes for the styling, which is pretty much the same as on the Insignia. The biggest novelties for the next year could be things like new color options, wheels designs etc.

Interior

While the most Buick models walk on the fine line between mainstream and premium segment, this models is rather practical. The 2022 Buick Regal will continue in the same way, offering a spacious cabin with lots of legroom and plenty of cargo space. Other than plenty of space, this model doesn’t have too many great things to offer. The overall interior quality is good, but definitely not on par with Honda Accord, Toyota Camry or many other models in the class. Things will become worse once you see the price. Most experts agree that the Regal is a little bit overpriced car.

Engine

The 2022 Buick Regal won’t feature some spectacular driving dynamics, but you can count on plenty of power. There are two engines in the offer which will carry on for the next year. The smaller one, 2.0-liter turbo inline-four is good for about 250 hp. It comes in a pair with a new 8-speed automatic transmission. The bigger one is a familiar 3.6-liter V6, which delivers around 310 horsepower and comes coupled with a 9-speed gearbox.

2020 Buick Regal Release Date and Price
