When it comes to consumer advocacy, Consumer Reports is one of the most trusted organizations. In its recent round of testing, it found the 2014 Buick Regal’s luxury was on par with the likes of the BMW 328i and the Mercedes-Benz C250.
In the final results, the Regal finished one point behind the BMW and tied for second with the Mercedes-Benz. Imagine having all that luxury and performance for thousands of dollars less.
“The Regal is a thoroughly developed and satisfying mid-sized sports sedan that’s more reminiscent of a German sports car than the softly sprung luxo-barges that Buick was once known for,” Jake Fisher, Consumer Reports’ director of automotive testing, said in the report.
Helping the Regal score well with the judges was its turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that makes it more fuel-efficient and quicker, without requiring premium fuel. It also shifts smoothly and accelerates quickly.

Buick’s rise up the ranks of luxury automakers has been swift and effective, as most recently seen in those commercials where Buick vehicles look so amazing that people simply don’t recognize them as Buicks yet. Now, Buick has found yet another way to set itself apart from the crowd, taking cues from the high fashion world to make the interior of the new Buick LaCrosse a luxurious den and a fashion statement all at once.
The LaCrosse combines sangria and ebony colors, the only luxury sedan to make such a bold choice. The color combination is currently featured prominently in many other luxury industries, and now Buick has beaten everyone else to the punch, bringing the stunning design to the LaCrosse. You’ll have to upgrade to the Ultra Luxury Interior Package to get the special colors, but seeing the dyed leather seats and ebony accents makes it seem well worth the investment.
“With this exclusive combination of premium materials and color execution, we are extending Buick’s distinction in interior design,” said Ven Lai, Buick lead creative designer for color and trim.”The Ultra Luxury Interior builds on the success and increasing demand for environments that evoke luxury and personal expression. Every detail matters: From the grade, pattern, texture and color of the leather to the layering of natural wood, metal and stitching, this interior moves beyond convention.”
