Safety

For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Buick Regal TourX are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Jaguar XF doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the Regal TourX. But it costs extra on the XF.

Both the Regal TourX and the XF have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, rear parking sensors and rear cross-path warning.

Warranty

Buick’s powertrain warranty covers the Regal TourX 1 year and 10,000 miles longer than Jaguar covers the XF. Any repair needed on the engine, transmission, axles, joints or driveshafts is fully covered for 6 years or 70,000 miles. Coverage on the XF ends after only 5 years or 60,000 miles.

There are over 12 times as many Buick dealers as there are Jaguar dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Regal TourX’s warranty.

Reliability

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 Initial Quality Study of new car owners surveyed provide the statistics that show that Buick vehicles are better in initial quality than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Buick 16th in initial quality. With 53 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 30th.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Buick vehicles are more reliable than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Buick third in reliability, above the industry average. With 43 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 20th.

Engine

The Regal TourX’s 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. produces 3 more horsepower (250 vs. 247) and 26 lbs.-ft. more torque (295 vs. 269) than the XF 25t’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl.

Fuel Economy and Range

To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Buick Regal TourX uses regular unleaded gasoline (premium recommended for maximum performance). The XF requires premium, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

The Regal TourX has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The XF doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

Servicing Ease

Ergonomics

The Regal TourX’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge – which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The XF does not have an oil pressure gauge.

Recommendations

The Buick Regal outsold the Jaguar XF by over six to one during 2018.
