2011 Buick Regal Priced at $27,000
The Regal will sticker for $26,995 including destination, with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and comfortable amenities like a 12-way heated driver's seat, heated leather passenger seat and several connectivity and safety options.
For the $27,000, you start with the ecotec engine with 182 horsepower. But although the prices may not seem favorable when compared to budget luxury cars like the 2011 Hyundai Sonata, buyers will be getting a bargain.
That's because the Regal is based on the European-made Opel Insignia which sells for as much as $37,000. The cars are being built there and shipped here starting in March. Although a plant in Canada will start producing them later this year, all Regals for now will be built in Germany.
If you'd like a German-built luxury car that offers a fresh exterior compared to many American cars, the Regal might be an affordable option to consider. As always, we recommend waiting a few months after a new model launches to allow supply to catch up with demand.
