|2016 Buick Regal||VS||2016 Subaru Legacy|
|2.4-Liter I-4||Base Engine||2.5-Liter H-4|
|Driver & Front Passenger||Heated Seats||Optional|
Under the hood of the Regal is a 2.4-liter inline-four-cylinder engine that puts out an impressive 182 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque. When you compare that to the 2.5-liter H-4 engine under the hood of the Subaru, you'll be sure to feel the extra horses of the Regal when you accelerate. Praised for responsive handling and a smooth driving experience, the Regal sets the standard when it comes to luxurious midsize sedans. The Subaru's sportier appearance and drive-style makes it a fun car to spend time inside, but it lacks the truly confident and easy-going appeal that makes the 2016 Regal stand out from other vehicles on the road.
When it comes to the interior, the Regal's smooth and modern design shines. The blocky and basic design of the Legacy's interior leaves a little to be desired. The Regal's clean lines and smooth appearance seems to give a comfortable flow to the entire cabin. Both vehicles come with standard technology features like a first-row LCD screen and an auxiliary input for listening to media devices. The Regal has standard heated front seats, giving them the advantage of additional comfort for cold winter drives.
Safety is a top priority for vehicle designers and that is why optional safety features for the Subaru and the Regal include a rear view camera, parking assist sensors, active collision avoidance, and lane departure warning. Be sure to ask our sales team to find out what other great safety and technology features are available for the 2016 Buick Regal.
