When you are looking for a new car to invest on, you will surely think of buying from the most popular brands out there. Two of the car models that will come to mind is the 2018 Volvo V60 and the 2018 Buick Regal TourX. Which is better between these two? It is too early to tell. You need to read this comparison first before making your final judgment.

Design & Style

When you take a look at the 2018 Volvo V60, the first thing you will notice is its very polished exterior finish. Inside it, you will notice that it really defines how premium it is as a wagon. You will also give plus points to it noting that it has a level of roominess you are looking for in a compact wagon that you want to bring home with you. The seats have been made such that everyone else will enjoy the space and comfort that they bring.

Just like the 2018 Volvo V60, the 2018 Buick Regal TourX is a five-passenger wagon. It comes with a slightly raised ride height and is a standard all-wheel drive. The elongated look of the car from the outside will give you the impression that there is plenty of space inside it. That is true for this car and you will surely feel comfortable getting in and out of it. What it lacks is the seat comfort provided by the V60.

Technology & Safety

You will find the inclusion of a simple set of standard features very usable for the 2018 Volvo V60. It comes packed in terms of safety features with the inclusion of Distance Alert and Queue Assist in the Volvo Technology package. Volvo's Sensus connect infotainment system is found in the V60 as well. This one includes a 7-inch touchscreen display, an 8-speaker audio system, USB ports, Bluetooth interface, and satellite radio among others.

The 2018 Buick Regal TourX, on the other hand, has the OnStar communication for its technology feature. It is also gifted with a touchscreen interface that is easy to use. It has to be noted though that the touchscreen becomes unreadable when it is exposed to sunlight. Add to that, you will be dismayed that adaptive cruise control is oversensitive especially when you automatically apply the brakes.

Performance

The base trim for the 2018 Volvo V60 comes packed with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. This has the capacity to produce a maximum output of 258lb-ft of torque and 240 horsepower. The turbocharged four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine in the 2018 Buick Regal TourX, on the other hand, is capable of producing up to 295lb-ft of torque and 240 horsepower. The lack of extra ground clearance makes it perform less efficient than the V60 though.

The Bottom Line

The comparison above shows the many different points where the 2018 Volvo V60 defeats the 2018 Buick Regal TourX. You will surely get your money's worth once you decide to own the Volvo.
