    2011 Buick Regal earns Top Safety Pick award

    The new Buick Regal earns the Institute's top safety accolade after achieving good ratings for front, side, rollover, and rear impact protection.

    The Top Safety Pick designation helps car shoppers zero in on the vehicles that afford the best overall crash protection. In addition to good crash test ratings, winners must have electronic stability control, an important crash-avoidance feature, which is standard on the Regal.

    The Regal is the seventh vehicle from General Motors to earn the award since the Institute implemented a new roof strength requirement for protection in rollover crashes. In this test, a metal plate is pushed against one corner of a vehicle's roof at a constant speed. The maximum force sustained by the roof before 5 inches of crush is compared to the vehicle's weight to find the strength-to-weight ratio. The roof of the Regal withstood a force equal to nearly 5 times the car's weight. For comparison, the current federal standard is 1.5 times weight.
