The current Buick Regal has a narrow set of competitors, what with its premium price tag and less than huge interior room.
Our Best Car To Buy 2013, the new Ford Fusion, has style that's just as fetching, handling that's even more confident, better interior space, and a hybrid model that's capable of 40-plus miles per gallon in the real world.
The Nissan Maxima has grabby styling, but it also has a CVT, an unappealing transmission with few virtues outside of simplicity and fuel economy.
The VW CC is closest to it, spec for spec, but has even less sporting intent.
Volvo's S60 is a wedgy Swedish delight, and offers all-wheel drive to go with its turbo boost.
The Acura TSX is big in its targets, and the Regal has comparable space and handling, with the boost of turbocharging on its side, not to mention much better styling.
