2019 Buick Regal vs. Its Competition

2019 Buick Regal Avenir
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2019 Buick Regal straddles the lines between sedan, hatchback, and wagon, which makes its rivals a scattershot affair.

The Ford Fusion is the closest domestic competitor, although this generation will be the last for the mid-size sedan.

The Nissan Maxima's sporty look has resonated with some sedan buyers, although its interior space is a little cramped because of it.

The Acura TLX offers a sporty look with two powertrain options, but it's not particularly thrilling to drive.

The Volvo V90 and V90 Cross Country are lux wagons compared to the Buick, but have a higher price tag to match.

The Subaru Outback is popular among mountain-state buyers, although base versions don't feel as sharp as the Buick.

Quick Specs
6.2
The 2019 Buick Regal is a new idea on an old name. Available as a fastback or wagon this time around it's certainly sharp, but could use a little more polish.
6.5
The 2019 Acura TLX is a sharp luxury mid-size sedan, but lacks the performance pedigree and options that others may offer.
6.0
The 2019 Ford Fusion’s good looks get shoppers in the door, but this sedan is starting to show its age.
6.2
The 2019 Nissan Maxima is a break from the familiar mid-size four-door sedans.
6.7
The 2019 Subaru Outback makes a sensible crossover SUV alternative.
