First and foremost, the Regal has been designed as a driver's car, explains GM product manager Fred Dixon. Typically, European cars get dumbed-down suspensions to give the squishy rides that North Americans presumably prefer and enthusiasts detest. Not so for the CXL, Dixon says. The Buick Regal comes to Canada virtually identical to the Opel Insignia, except for "minor, fine-tuning adjustments" to account for the use of different tires.
Both the CXL (normally aspirated 182-horsepower 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine) and CXL Turbo (220-h. p. 2.0L turbo four) feature steering, transmission calibration and throttle response designed to create a rewarding driving experience. Dixon explains GM engineers could have achieved greater fuel economy ratings (CXL: 10.8 litres per 100 kilometres in the city, 6.5 on the highway; CXL Turbo: not rated yet) but that would have diminished the driving experience they wanted to create, so trade-offs were made.
Another 60 horsepower would be nice, though, and Dixon confirms a GS Regal is in the works.

2010 LaCrosse breaks new ground for revived Buick brand. | Carguide Canada, 17 Feb 2010 [cached]
"We expect we'll have a whole host of new customers because this car is so different," said Fred Dixon, product manager with General Motors Canada "We are aiming at a younger crowd," he added, noting that traditional Buick customers are among the General's most loyal so they will be drawn to the new LaCrosse as well. The LaCrosse name has been used in the U.S. since 2004 for what we in Canada have called the Buick Allure.
