2016 Buick Regal vs. 2016 Nissan Altima Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Nissan Altima requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Buick Regal, 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). The Buick Regal is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Altima. 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 Nissan Altima.

Performance
The Buick Regal has less horsepower than the Nissan Altima, 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 Nissan Altima.

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