2014 BMW 320 vs. 2014 Buick Regal Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW 320 than in the Buick Regal, due to the BMW 320's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick Regal, the BMW 320 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 320 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 320 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 BMW 320 and the Buick Regal have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 320 is much slimmer than the Buick Regal, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW 320 is slightly shorter than the Buick Regal, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The BMW 320 has much less torque than the Buick Regal, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 320 has a smaller turning radius than the Buick Regal, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 320 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 BMW 320 and the Buick Regal. The BMW 320 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 BMW 320 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Buick Regal.
