Multi-Functional Driver's Seat in the Acura TLX

Additional Vehicle Information

When it comes down to a decision between the 2017 Acura TLX vs 2017 Buick Regal near Fairfax, VA, there’s only one choice to make. The Acura TLX far surpasses the capabilities of the Regal, from the impressive powertrain, to the expansive cabin, to the exterior and interior features that are sure to inspire you. Schedule a test drive in this luxury sedan when you visit Pohanka Acura today!

You’ll find both the Acura TLX and the Buick Regal equipped with a 2.4L base engine, but the difference is found in how well this engine performs in each vehicle. With standard transmission equipped, the Regal boasts a 6-speed shiftable automatic, while the Acura TLX boldly trumps that with an 8-speed automated manual transmission for optimal maneuvering. The Acura TLX boasts 206 horsepower and 182 lb.-ft. of torque and the Regal falls behind with only 182 horsepower and 172 lb.-ft. of torque at its disposal. The Regal will provide you with a fuel economy of 19/30 MPG city/hwy1, but you’ll gain a much better rating of 24/35 MPG city/hwy2 in the Acura TLX.

When you enter the cabin of each of these luxury sedans, it is evident which one is truly the superior brand. The Acura TLX brags its 42.6-inch legroom space over the Regal’s 42.1 inches of room. And if you’re not looking to be cramped into a small area, opt for the Acura TLX’s 57.5 inches of shoulder room in the front and 55.4 inches in the back, instead of the Regal’s 56.7 inches of front row shoulder space and 54.4 inches for back-row passengers. With all of this convenience at your fingertips, you can already determine the clear winner of this 2017 Acura TLX vs 2017 Buick Regal near Fairfax, VA, comparison.

The driver’s seat in the Acura TLX offers 2-driver memory modification and adjustable seat height functionality, but the Regal lacks both of these features in its lowest trims. Utilize the front armrest storage for all of your small necessities in the Acura TLX because you can’t find it in the Regal. A night out at Epicure Cafe should start with a convenient Push Button Ignition, which comes standard in the Acura TLX, but seems to be missing from the Regal. The Acura TLX also brags its inclusion of an integrated garage door opener, noise cancellation abilities, and even an active head restraint, all of which the Regal cannot claim as standard.

You won’t find a power moonroof in the Buick Regal, but the Acura TLX will be the first to boast its offering of this lovely amenity. The external mirrors feature a 2-position memory system in the Acura TLX, which also provides speed-sensing interval wipers for the heaviest storms. The Regal once again fails in these departments.

When you consider the 2017 Acura TLX vs 2017 Buick Regal near Fairfax, VA, comparison, you can clearly understand how the Acura TLX takes the winning spot as the best luxury sedan in the market. Get behind the wheel of one today when you visit Pohanka Acura, located at 13911 Lee Jackson Highway in Chantilly, VA!
