Buick has unveiled the 2014 Regal, ahead of its debut at the New York Auto Show.

Described as "sportier and smarter," the facelifted model has an evolutionary design with modified bumpers and LED-infused headlights. We can also see a ventilated hood, additional chrome trim and restyled taillights.

Interior changes are limited but include a new steering wheel, an upgraded instrument cluster and a revised center stack with an IntelliLink infotainment system.

Like the 2014 LaCrosse, the Regal gains several new safety features including Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Change Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert and Collision Mitigation Braking.

Under the hood, two different engines are available. The entry-level model is equipped with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine - that develops 182 bhp (136 kW) and 172 lb-ft (232 Nm) of torque - and an eAssist system that has an electric motor which contributes an additional 15 bhp (11 kW) and 79 lb-ft (107 Nm) of torque.

Moving up to the Regal Turbo or Regal GS rewards buyers with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 259 bhp (193 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. The models are also available with a new Haldex all-wheel-drive system which has an electronic limited-slip differential.

The 2014 Buick Regal will go on sale this fall and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
