2017 Buick Regal vs. 2017 Lincoln MKZ Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Regal offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lincoln MKZ with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick Regal, drivers may find the Lincoln MKZ a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Regal as you will with the Lincoln MKZ, 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). Based on MSRP, the Buick Regal is clearly a better financial choice over the Lincoln MKZ. 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 Lincoln MKZ have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick Regal is about the same width as the Lincoln MKZ. The Buick Regal is slightly shorter than the Lincoln MKZ, 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 Lincoln MKZ.

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

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

Warranty
The Buick Regal comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKZ.
