Consumer Reports Recommends Buick Over BMW and Benz

USA Today is noting that Consumer Reports, America’s premier consumer advocacy publication, has recommended the updated 2014 Buick Regal over its pricier foreign competitors.

The Buick earned a “recommended” rating from Consumer Reports and scored 83 points out of a possible 100. That puts it in the same rating category as luxury cars from Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, and BMW. The big difference, though, is that the Buick is by far the least expensive.

“Regal beat the Volvo S60 in a head-to-head road test,” wrote Consumer Reports. “Ultimately, the Regal wound up finishing just one point shy of the class-leading BMW 328i and tied the Mercedes-Benz C250 for second place in the organization’s overall ratings of upscale sport sedans – while costing thousands less.”

Over $8,700 less, to be exact. That’s the price difference between the Buick Regal Premium 2-liter, 4-cylinder turbo, front wheel drive, sports sedan and the significantly costlier BMW 328i, rear wheel drive model – despite the fact that both cars scored almost identical ratings.

The magazine’s director of automotive testing, Jake Fisher, says, “The Regal is a thoroughly developed and satisfying midsized sports sedan that’s more reminiscent of a German sports car than the softly sprung luxo-barges that Buick was once known for.” To experience the luxury and value of a new and improved Buick for yourself, stop by Gjovik Auto today.
