“That’s not a Buick!” chanted both people and pets in the most recent (and the most recognizable) Buick commercials.

If you were not familiar with a popular nowadays brand Buidillac, that’s what you’re going to discover while test-driving the new Regal GS.

The interior is luxurious, and all of the elements are accomplished with a great attention to detail. The new Buick GS features leather within the seats and throughout the whole interior. The driver’s dash boasts a huge display that could be set up completely to your heart’s desire. Another plus you would definitely notice in the interior is its extreme simplicity. The manufacturer didn’t intend to add as many knobs and buttons to the center console as it’d be “physically possible,” and I’m really thankful for that. All that you will notice is going to be basically focused on climate and audio control, which is more than enough for your everyday use of the center console.

The interior overall is one of the biggest things in the new GS; however, it doesn’t go without some of the negatives, too. For instance, the beautiful leather seats I have previously mentioned turned out to be not so comfortable, to say the least. The central armrest isn’t wide enough (even while there is enough space to make it wider), and as a result you have to move your right hand further back, which within just a few days of driving to and from work caused me some back pain.
