2019 Buick Regal Avenir Joins Buick’s Top-Tier Luxury Lineup

2019 Buick Regal Avenir

Since the introduction of the Buick Avenir trim level, Buick drivers have been excitedly embracing the new line of luxury models for the truly exceptional experience they offer. Buick drivers now have even more to be enthusiastic about, as the 2019 Buick Regal is getting an Avenir trim level. This is particularly good news for luxury drivers who want to enjoy all the benefits of the Avenir line but who prefer something smaller than the Enclave crossover or the full-size LaCrosse Sedan. The 2019 Regal TourX Wagon will not receive an Avenir trim this year.

 

Some of the most appealing features of the 2019 Regal Avenir include its nine-speed automatic transmission, 19-inch Pearl Nickel wheels, self-leveling and cornering headlamps, premium leather upholsterer, an advanced 8-inch infotainment touchscreen display, and a premium eight-speaker Bose audio system. Apart from these features, we also expect the 2019 Regal Avenir will come with distinctive badging and a three-dimensional mesh grille.

 

Another popular aspect of the Avenir models is the standard feature packages that improve every aspect of the driving experience. The 2019 Regal Avenir will come standard with the Buick Driver Confidence I Package, which includes four-way lumbar adjustment, heated outside mirrors, and an array of driver-assist features like Lane Change Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Rear Park Assist.

Mary Poppins Gala

Fans of Mary Poppins will love the Mary Poppins 72nd Season Gala in Spokane, WA. Held from September 14 to October 14, this event will be held at the Spokane Civic Theatre from Thursdays to Saturdays until 7:30pm and Sundays until 2:00pm. As one of the most popular Disney movies of all times, Mary Poppins  has held an important place in American culture and entertainment for decades.

According to Visit Spokane, the event celebrates Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s version of Mary Poppins  to bring you a performance like never before. Following the eccentric—and magical—nanny Mary Poppins as she meets and cares for the Banks family, the story has a range of unforgettable song and dance numbers. Mary Poppins has been nominated for nine Olivier Awards and seven Tony Awards over the years.

The performance is bound to be especially popular with Mary Poppins Returns, a new Disney film set to hit theatres sometime in late 2018. Starring Emily Blunt, the new film is a musical fantasy directed by Rob Marshall and featuring truly great songs. Inspiring for children and adults alike, Mary Poppins is all about how “anything can happen if you let it.”
