Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Buick Regal Sportback than in the FIAT 500L, due to the Buick Regal Sportback's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick Regal Sportback and the FIAT 500L in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Buick Regal Sportback you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the FIAT 500L, due to its larger tank size and better 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 Sportback will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the FIAT 500L, 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 Buick Regal Sportback carries a much lower Destination Charge than the FIAT 500L.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Regal Sportback is much wider than the FIAT 500L, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Buick Regal Sportback, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the FIAT 500L.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Buick Regal Sportback does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the FIAT 500L.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick Regal Sportback has a much more powerful engine than the FIAT 500L. 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 Sportback and the FIAT 500L. The Buick Regal Sportback has less cargo capacity than the FIAT 500L, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick Regal Sportback is not as nearly as extensive as that of the FIAT 500L.
