From the immaculate interior, to sleek lines on the exterior, to the power of the turbocharged engine, Buick has blended luxury and performance. The 2104 Regal could almost drive itself. The Driver Confidence  package includes forward-collision alert, following-distance indicator and side blind-zone alerts. I enjoy the look of the Regal, and I have  a hunch it will appeal to a younger crowd for Buick.

Dislikes

Unfortunately, the touch-screen navagation and radio setup is not user-friendly. It took a lot of playing around with it to figure out the basics. Only after a full day of driving did I realize that the Regal was equipped with XM radio when I accidentally pushed a wrong button. If you are a taller person, you will feel cramped.

Verdict

The 2014 Regal offers comfort, performance and looks that — to my surprise —  will appeal to a younger generation. Buick has stepped up its game, and I would definitely buy one.  Well worth its $41k price tag.
