value writeup

The Buick Regal is aimed directly at luxury sedans from European manufacturers like Audi and BMW. In pursuit of this goal, the Buick Regal offers a smooth quiet ride, a powerful 2.0L turbo engine and more rear legroom then its rivals with an astounding 60 cubic feet of storage space with the rear seats folded down.

With the Buick Regal Sportback starting at around $25,000 for a base model going up to $35,270 for the top of the line Avenir model, it easily undercuts its main competition in the Kia Stinger, which starts around $33,000, as well as the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe and Audi A5 Sportback, which both start at well over $40,000.
