Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Regal Sportback than the BMW 430, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick Regal Sportback, the BMW 430 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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 BMW 430 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Buick Regal Sportback, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 430 will cost more in transportation costs than the Buick Regal Sportback.

Dimensions
The BMW 430 is a little narrower than the Buick Regal Sportback, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the BMW 430, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Buick Regal Sportback.
