At the 2010 Detroit Motor Show general Motors has presented the revival of the Regal name plate for Buick, by crossbreeding the Buick Regal with the DNA of is Vauxhaull/Opel cousin from over seas, the Insignia.

If you have been up on your Top Gear episodes you will know that James May painstakingly test drove one around Great Brit, along with a woman who designed all the road signs in GB… typical James May fashion.

Once you get through his overwhelmingly detailed report you come to find that the power train and the handling of the vehicle is much to be desired.

Equipped with 215hp AWD turbo charged 2.0L Ecotec motor linked with a 6-speed manual gearbox there is little to say then of course this should be fun luxury sleeper.

Quite possibly bringing a little bit of life to the Buick name plate, previously synonymous with an older sunday driving kind of crowd. It is great to see GM on the path to regain enthusiasts to their buick line in America, lets hope it sticks.
