When it comes to hugging turns and cruising down I-94, only one of these vehicles is equipped with the power and performance you expect from a luxury sedan. The 2016 Acura TLX comes with a standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that will get your heart racing with 206 hp and 182 lb.-ft. of torque. Quickly falling behind, the 2016 Buick Regal’s standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine can only get 182 hp and 172 lb.-ft. of torque. You’ll also enjoy a more spirited ride thanks to the TLX’s standard 8-speed automated transmission, compared to the 6-speed shiftable automatic that comes standard in the Regal. Whether you log a lot of miles each day, or simply want to get where you need to without always stopping for fuel, you’ll appreciate the impressive 24/35 MPG city/hwy1 in the TLX. The Regal can’t top this either, with only 19/27 MPG city/hwy2.
You’ll get everything you want, and more, without having to blow your budget on expensive trim upgrades in the 2016 TLX as can be seen in this 2016 Acura TLX vs 2016 Buick Regal near Milwaukee, WI, comparison. Acura keeps things simple with only three main trim levels for the TLX, grouping the features you want together, whereas Buick groups its features for the Regal into four different trim levels that are complicated to sort through. When it comes to standard offerings, some advantages in the TLX include LED headlights and taillights to see and be seen, a sunroof that both you and your passengers will enjoy, keyless ignition for getting on the go with ease, and a four-way power passenger seat. Go up one trim level and you’ll receive advanced technology features such as 10-speaker audio system and adaptive cruise control. You’ll have to get a higher trim level just to get these features on the Regal, and it still only offers a 9-speaker audio system at best.
Although they both offer advanced technology features, you’ll be able to utilize them better on the Acura TLX’s modern center console. The ergonomic design features an available dual-screen display that allows you to see your route while changing the music or other settings on the second screen below it. The cup holders are placed along side the shift knob as opposed to below it, as in the Regal, so they are out of the way but still easy to reach. You’ll also only get one touchscreen in the Regal’s dated center console.
