2014 Buick Regal vs. 2014 Dodge Charger Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Charger than the Buick Regal, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick Regal and the Dodge Charger in the front seats.

Convenience
The Buick Regal will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Dodge Charger, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Whether you pick the Buick Regal or the Dodge Charger, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Buick Regal will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Dodge Charger.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Regal is much slimmer than the Dodge Charger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Buick Regal, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Charger.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick Regal is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Charger. 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 Buick Regal and the Dodge Charger. The Buick Regal has less cargo capacity than the Dodge Charger, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick Regal than that of the Dodge Charger.
