Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Regal offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Acura TL. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick Regal and the Acura TL in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Regal as you will with the Acura TL, 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 Buick Regal will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Acura TL. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Buick Regal and the Acura TL have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Buick Regal transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Acura TL.

Handling
