A true reinvention and vehicle thatâ€™s surprising critics, MI Auto Times is announcing the Buick Regal MI Auto Times Top Pick in the â€˜Rising through the Ranksâ€™ category.
Online PR News – 17-September-2010 – – Buick Regal MI shoppers have a new reason to ensure theyâ€™re on the right path to choosing a great vehicle. MI Auto Times has recently released its Top 10 Picks buying guide and the Buick Regal made the list under the category â€˜Rising through the Ranks.â€™
Those looking to purchase Buick Regal MI vehicles will be happy to know itâ€™s received better reviews than the Lincoln MKZ and the Acura TSX. The Buick Regal is a significant step for General Motors away from older generations in a move to attract younger buyers. The vehicle is also a reflection of GMâ€™s inclination toward smaller engines and better fuel economy. Add all of that together in a luxurious package and Buick Regal MI buyers are getting one vehicle for much less than luxury class competitors.
There are many things that contributed to the Buick Regal outpacing the competition and making the MI Auto Times Top Picks list. First and foremost are the Buick Regalâ€™s engines: a 2.4-liter EcoTec 4-cylinder direct-injection engine or the 220 horsepower 2.0-liter EcoTec Turbo engine. Long gone is the driving sensation of being at the helm of a boat; now the handling is exceptionally sporty and much more responsive.
The MSRP starts at $26,245 allowing more people access to a vehicle with more luxury touches such as rear parking assist, leather-wrapped steering wheel, 12-way power driverâ€™s seat and heated, leather seating.
But the Buick Regal was not the only car to make the list.
The Toyota Prius was chosen as the top Green Car for its demonstrated fuel economy, reliability, low emissions and driver-controlled selection modes giving the driver full ability to gauge how their driving is directly affecting fuel efficiency.
The Honda Civic takes the Small Sedan field, and it should come as no surprise because this model has long been associated with longevity and high resale value.
The GMC Sierra leads the Pickup Truck top pick because of its towing and payload capacity. The GMC Sierra was also the MI Auto Times Best Truck winner. Buyers also get On-star with this vehicle for one year.
The Dodge Grand Caravan takes the Minivan top pick because of its abundant safety equipment and enhanced seating flexibility.
The Buick LaCrosse makes an unconventional though well-deserved appearance in the Family Sedan category because it packages luxury, safety and performance into a more affordable price for families looking for extras without great investment.
The Chevrolet Equinoxâ€™s sharp design and supreme carlike handling gave it the win in the Compact SUV category.
