The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently announced the 2015 Buick Regal five-star safety rating. This Buick is currently on sale at Buick Dealerships (like yours truly, College Chevrolet Buick).
2015 Buick Regal
Overall, the Buick sedan earned four stars for its response to the front crash test, five stars for the side crash, and four in the rollover test.
This rating is not only for the all-wheel-drive version of the Buick Regal, but also the front-wheel-drive version.
The standard safety package comes with a rearview camera, six airbags, stability control, traction control, and antilock brakes. Optional features include lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert, and side blind zone alert.
The 2015 Buick Regal has proven itself to be one of the safest vehicles on the road, and the US government has given the Regal its seal of approval with the Five-Star Safety rating.
Current Buick Encore
A few months ago, Chevrolet announced ago that they would be including 4G LTE abilities to some models for the 2015 model year. At the DENT Conference in Idaho, Buick announced that they too would be offering 4G LTE. With this new technology, drivers will be able to turn their car into a mobile hotspot allowing internet surfing and web browsing from inside the vehicle.
4G LTE will be available through OnStar and will require a subscription and data plan, although prices have not yet been determined. The hotspot will be able to allow up to seven devices to connect simultaneously giving each of your passengers internet access from their own devices. Along with internet, this new addition will offer in-dash app integration and also connect you to your vehicle diagnostics.
For the 2015 model year, the LaCrosse, Regal, Verano, and Encore are said to have LTE capabilities and all 2016 Buick models will include the new feature.
What do you think about GM offering 4G LTE on their new models? Will you turn your car into a mobile hot spot? Let us know in the comment section below and be sure to stop by College Chevy when the 2015s start rolling in!
