2014 Subaru Impreza WRX vs. 2014 Buick Regal Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Regal than the Subaru Impreza WRX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru Impreza WRX will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Regal.

Convenience
With the Buick Regal you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Subaru Impreza WRX, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Subaru Impreza WRX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Buick Regal. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Subaru Impreza WRX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Buick Regal.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru Impreza WRX is much slimmer than the Buick Regal, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Subaru Impreza WRX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Buick Regal.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Subaru Impreza WRX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Buick Regal.

Handling
The Subaru Impreza WRX has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Buick Regal, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Subaru Impreza WRX and the Buick Regal.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Subaru Impreza WRX and the Buick Regal. The Subaru Impreza WRX has significantly less cargo room than the Buick Regal, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Subaru Impreza WRX is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Buick Regal.
