Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Regal TourX as you will with the Ford Transit Connect, 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 TourX is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Transit Connect.

The Buick Regal TourX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Transit Connect.

The Buick Regal TourX is a little wider than the Ford Transit Connect, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Buick Regal TourX, which is slightly longer than the Ford Transit Connect.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Buick Regal TourX does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Ford Transit Connect.
