2016 Buick Regal vs. 2016 Volkswagen Passat Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Passat you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Buick Regal, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Volkswagen Passat. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Buick Regal is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Passat.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick Regal has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen Passat. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher 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 Volkswagen Passat.

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