Shortly after revealing the first official images of the refreshed 2024 Buick Regal in China, General Motors has just launched Buick‘s updated midsize sedan in the Asian country.
The SAIC-GM joint venture officially launched the refreshed 2024 Buick Regal on July 24th during a special event in Shanghai, introducing the second facelift of the sixth-generation Regal that adopts the Tri-Shield brand’s new design language and corporate image. The Chinest-market-exclusive sedan enters its seventh model year with a revised exterior look and improved connectivity features.
Notably, the refreshed 2024 Buick Regal is the second member of Buick’s family of sedans to adopt the latest design evolution and new logo after the all-new fourth-generation Buick LaCrosse recently launched in China. The only bodywork change is the new shark-nose front fascia and massive trapezoidal grille, which completely transforms its appearance while further accentuating the vehicle’s low stance.
The refreshed 2024 Buick Regal lineup is comprised of Premium and Enjoy trim levels. Both come standard with a comprehensive set of features and essentially share the same stylishly finished look, with differences limited to wheel design and size as well as the 25T and 28T badging on the decklid that identify powertrain options.
Mechanically, the 2024 Buick Regal continues to offer the same existing configuration consisting of the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LFV for the base Premium trim, developing 166 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, as well as the familiar turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY in the Enjoy, which produces 233 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are mated to GM’s nine-speed automatic transmission.
The refreshed 2024 Buick Regal is now available for sale at Buick’s extensive network of official dealers in China, which remains the only country where both this nameplate and the others that make up the brand’s portfolio of sedans (Excelle, Verano and LaCrosse) are manufactured and marketed. Since its local introduction in 1999, more than 1.7 million units of the Buick Regal have been sold in the Chinese market.
Here is pricing for the two 2024 Buick Regal trim levels in China:
- 2024 Regal Premium: 159,800 yuan (about $22,240 USD at the current exchange rate)
- 2024 Regal Enjoy: 175,800 yuan ($24,460 USD)
