Buick Regal Keeps Columbia SC Safe and In Control On the Road

Buick Regal Suspension

MacPherson struts and a host of other technologies keep the Buick Regal planted and in control on Columbia, SC's roads.

It doesn’t take an engineering degree to appreciate Regal’s adhesive handling on the roads and highways around Columbia, South Carolina. Designing and calibrating all of its precision intricacies certainly does. True driver appreciation for Regal’s confident handling comes from its uncanny ability to seamlessly respond—in sync with your steering wheel commands. You encounter a tight curve, and Regal stays exactly where you place it, carving a precise line through the turn’s arc. Your geometry teacher would be proud.

MacPherson strut front suspension utilizes aluminum components to optimize unsprung weight. Also available are lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels on CXL Turbo. Together with the MacPherson struts, these chassis and suspension elements provide precise steering and excellent body and wheel control for a smooth ride and firm, stable braking. StabiliTrak and full-function traction control combine to offer Columbia drivers a stronger bond with the road even in adverse conditions. Both integrated systems constantly monitor the vehicle to help retain traction and assist the driver in maintaining their steering path for optimal control.
Variable effort steering on CXL Turbo models automatically reduce hydraulic assistance at high speeds for heightened steering feel. More assist comes at city speeds to provide low-effort maneuverability. Regal’s four-link independent rear suspension uses an aluminum lower link for reduced weight and enhanced response. Suspension geometry and kinematics are specifically tuned to give excellent ride and handling characteristics even on rough surfaces. It helps keep Regal stable when set on a driving line, making it a very easy car to drive.

Safety Features in the Buick Regal Protect Columbia SC Drivers and Passengers

Everything in the all-new Buick Regal is about heightening your senses, including your sense of well-being. That’s why it’s designed to take a highly active approach to safety.
It starts with an optimized Body Frame Integral (BFI) structure that helps protect you and fellow passengers in impact situations. This holistically designed structure strategically positions high-strength steel. This helps enable a refined ride and handling while creating a protective safety cage for occupant protection. Technology includes dual pretensioners for front safety belts, a patented Pedal Release System, side-impact door beams and a lot more.  (Of course, all of this is no substitute for wearing your seat belt and keeping your children in the back seat in an appropriate child or booster seat.)
Regal’s front air bags use two-stage inflation to help prevent injuries caused by the air bags themselves. Front-seat side-impact air bags and head curtain side air bags for front and rear outboard occupants provide additional protection in side crashes. Regal also offers available rear outboard seat-mounted thorax air bags. And with OnStar’s Automatic Crash Response, you can get be connected to emergency services quickly and automatically–even if you can’t ask for it.
