2020 Buick Regal vs. Its Competition

Buick generally splits the difference between mainstream and luxury, and the Regal is no exception.

The lineup squares off against the plusher (and pricier) Acura TLX.

The Mazda 6’s optional turbo-4 and high-end trim packages are a compelling value.

With its redesigned Legacy sedan and Outback tall-riding wagon, Subaru continues its slow march upmarket.

The new cars are packed with safety and convenience features and are available with a modest price tag.

Nissan’s recently redesigned Altima sedan has a fastback-like shape and the option of all-wheel drive or turbo power.
