2017 Audi A4 vs. 2017 Buick Regal Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A4 than in the Buick Regal, due to the Audi A4's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A4 and the Buick Regal in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A4 as you will with the Buick Regal, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Audi A4 is somewhat more expensive than the Buick Regal. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A4 and the Buick Regal have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A4 is about the same width as the Buick Regal. The Audi A4 is slightly shorter than the Buick Regal, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Audi A4 has much less torque than the Buick Regal, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Audi A4 has about the same turning radius as the Buick Regal, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A4 is significantly less powerful than the Buick Regal. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A4 and the Buick Regal. The Audi A4 has less cargo capacity than the Buick Regal, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi A4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Buick Regal.
