2014 Buick Regal vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Regal than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. The Buick Regal will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Convenience

The Buick Regal and the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.
