Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Regal Sportback than the Toyota Prius. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick Regal Sportback, drivers may find the Toyota Prius a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Regal Sportback as you will with the Toyota Prius, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Prius. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Buick Regal Sportback will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Prius.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Regal Sportback is much wider than the Toyota Prius, 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 Toyota Prius.

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 Toyota Prius.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick Regal Sportback has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius. 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 Toyota Prius. The Buick Regal Sportback has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Toyota Prius.

Warranty
The Buick Regal Sportback comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Prius.
