Buick is launching its the Regal Turbo sport sedan in Mexico. The turbocharged midsize luxury four-door retains all the features of its U.S.- and Canada-market brethren, including the 2.0 liter turbocharged Ecotec engine good for 220 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque… even though most GM Authority readers think that the mill should make at least 250 horsepower; but we digress.
Other familiar features include Quiet Tuning, IntelliLink infotainment, Xenons, 18-inch 13-spoke aluminum wheels, ice blue LED cabin and ambient lighting, a leather-appointed interior with heated front seats, and the excellent Harman/Kardon nine-speaker sound system with amplifier and subwoofer.
The sedan is priced from 499,900 pesos, or $38,901 by today’s conversion rates. It will be available starting late October and joins the LaCrosse and Enclave as the least expensive Buick in the lineup — a title it will likely not enjoy for long due to the impending Mexico launch of the compact Verano. For reference, the Mexico-market LaCrosse carries a starting price of $565,800 pesos and the Enclave starts at 638,100.
