2017 Buick Regal vs. 2016 Ford Taurus Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Taurus 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 Ford Taurus 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 Ford Taurus, 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 Ford Taurus. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Ford Taurus.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Regal is much slimmer than the Ford Taurus, 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 Ford Taurus.

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

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

Performance
The Buick Regal has less horsepower than the Ford Taurus, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick Regal and the Ford Taurus. The Buick Regal has significantly less cargo room than the Ford Taurus, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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