The Regal, part of Buick's lineup for decades, is a large sedan with seating up to 5. Strong on technology, it has offered Android Auto and Apple CarPlay since 2016. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it handles mud, snow, and sand with ease. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. Buick offers a 4-year, 50,000-mile basic warranty, and a 6-year, 70,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2014 Buick Regal has a score of 82, implying a 0.039% chance of driver death (3.5% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.037%, and the chance of injury falls to 3.3%.

We estimate that the 2014 Buick Regal has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0388% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.4364%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0388% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.4364% chance of being injured.
