Vehicle Profile: 2020 Buick Regal GS
The 2020 Buick Regal GS is a midsize sedan with more than just a sporty attitude. Boasting racing-inspired performance and design, the Regal GS is the car to get when you need an exhilarating driving experience to go with your luxury.
The 2020 Buick Regal GS takes the refined ride of the regular Regal and adds some much-appreciated spice. Its 3.6-liter V6 engine produces 310 horsepower and 282 lb-ft of torque, which is 60 more horses than the Regal Sportback, and thanks to standard intelligent All-Wheel Drive with active twin clutch, it’s easy to make the best use out of all that power. The AWD’s ability to dynamically distribute power between the front and rear axles, as well as between the right and left wheels, gives you the kind of confidence-boosting grip on all road conditions that both novice and experienced drivers can appreciate. The Regal GS is also equipped with large Brembo® front brakes with dual-piston calipers and stiffer suspension than the regular Regal, contributing to enhanced stopping power and sharper handling. It doesn’t have to be all aggressive though: Thanks to advanced driving modes, you can adjust the character of the power steering, transmission and throttle on the fly to favor performance or comfort, whichever you prefer in the moment.
Interior comfort and space
Inside, the 2020 Buick Regal GS features stylish GS-exclusive, racing-inspired front seats with heating, cooling and massaging functions, as well as great support for spirited driving. Other than these unique seats, you get a hint of the car’s sportiness from the flat-bottom steering wheel and metal pedals, but the rest is all refined sophistication and classic Buick luxury. Your passengers will find it easy to get comfortable even in the back seat, and if you’ve got luggage to bring along, you’ll find the trunk’s sportback opening more than accommodating. With the rear seats down, it’s positively cavernous, with enough room to swallow 60.7 cubic feet of your stuff.
Advanced technology features
Every 2020 Buick Regal GS is equipped with a slick-looking, 8-inch digital instrument cluster that you can configure to show the information you care about most, such as speed, navigation directions and fuel level. Another 8-inch touch screen provides you with access to the infotainment system, which features Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration as well as a mobile 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot. Blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are also standard, while lane departure warning, lane keeping assistance and adaptive cruise control are offered as options. Other desirable options include a head-up display, eight-speaker audio system by Bose®, and wireless charging.
The 2020 Buick Regal GS is a top choice for drivers seeking a dynamic experience behind the wheel and lots of interior comfort and features, making it an excellent fit for both driving enthusiasts and small families with a taste for the refined.
