Buick announces new Regal sport sedan for 2011 model year
Posted: November 17, 2009, 11:01 AM by Brian Harper

Buick has revealed its plans for the 2011 Regal sport sedan. Armed with turbocharged horsepower, a driver-selectable suspension system and a European-tuned chassis, the General Motors brand says the car delivers a driving experience that rivals the best import sport sedans in the segment.

The new Regal arrives in the second quarter of 2010, with its sights aimed squarely on competitors such as the Acura TSX and Volvo S60. It has a longer wheelbase and greater trunk volume than those vehicles, along with standard features — including a six-speed automatic transmission, 18-inch wheels and OnStar – that aren’t offered standard on either competitor.

The Regal’s development is rooted in Germany, where the engineering team created the Opel Insignia — the 2009 European Car of the Year. The Insignia has garnered more than 31 awards and is the best-selling mid-sized sedan in Europe. The Regal will bring all of the Insignia’s design, technology and performance capabilities to the American market.
