2017 Buick Regal vs. 2016 Kia Cadenza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Regal offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Kia Cadenza with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Kia Cadenza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Regal.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Regal as you will with the Kia Cadenza, 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 Kia Cadenza. 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 Kia Cadenza.

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

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

Handling
The Buick Regal has a larger turning radius than the Kia Cadenza, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Buick Regal has less horsepower than the Kia Cadenza, 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 Kia Cadenza. The Buick Regal has less cargo capacity than the Kia Cadenza, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick Regal is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Cadenza.
