2015 Buick Regal vs 2015 Audi A4
You might not realize it, but Buick is actually the oldest active American automotive manufacturing marque in existence. That makes the brand one of the richest in history and accomplishments, but perhaps going hand in hand with being the oldest brand on the market came a stigma of being a “grandma” car. So a few years ago Buick pretty much wiped out the entire lineup and started fresh, but with four out of the 5 vehicles being completely new they also brought back one nameplate with a lot of history behind it as well: the Buick Regal. The Regal can lay claim to having the fastest vehicle in Buick’s history as one of its special grades, so we wanted to see how it measured up against another fairly famous luxury-sport car by comparing the 2015 Buick Regal vs 2015 Audi A4.
Advantages of the 2015 Buick Regal
One might think, due to Audi being more popularly associated with being a luxury brand, that its extremely popular A4 model might have some pretty substantial advantages over the Buick Regal midsize sedan, but if you take a look at the table above it’s actually the Regal that has a leg up in four of the most important specifications in a luxury-sport vehicle: horsepower, torque, cargo capacity and interior volume.
The one area that is perhaps the most surprising is horsepower. The Audi A4 is a well-known sports car, so we came into this research half expecting the Buick to be the lesser in that category, but as it turns out the 2015 Buick Regal has an impressive 39-horsepower advantage over the A4. Not just that, but in torque as well, with 37 extra foot-pounds. But space is nearly as important as performance in the midsize segment, and the Regal has nearly 2 extra cubic feet of cargo capacity in the trunk, and just south of 10 extra cu. ft. of space in the interior.
