Dallas: The Buick Regal is a Top Safety Pick and It’s Fun to Drive

According to Consumer Reports, The Buick Regal has earned IIHS Top Safety pick.

The Buick Regal is the latest in a fast-growing group of cars to earn a Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). (Read the full results.)

Earning that designation means a car has performed well in all of the Institute’s tests, including a front crash test, side-impact test, head-restraint design, and its stringent new roof-crush test. IIHS rates cars in all these tests on a scale of Good, Acceptable, Marginal, and Poor. The Regal earned a Good in all these tests.

The Regal is the smallest model from Buick, brought over from GM’s German Opel subsidiary. Look for a full test in our October issue and even sooner online.
