While we would highly suggest you wait for the all-new, 2018 Buick Regal to arrive, if you must have a Regal today, its safety ratings have sweetened the deal.
Edmunds reports the 2017 Buick Regal has received a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration. The rating also applies to both front- and all-wheel-drive variants.
Specifically, the 2017 Regal received four stars in the front crash and five stars in the side-impact test. Rollover test ratings have not been posted.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not rated the 2017 Regal, but similar results can be inferred from these government tests.
The 2017 Buick Regal will arrive at dealers shortly while the 2018 Regal awaits its official debut likely early next year.
