2014 Acura TL vs. 2015 Buick LaCrosse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick LaCrosse than the Acura TL, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse, the Acura TL may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TL as you will with the Buick LaCrosse, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Acura TL or the Buick LaCrosse, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura TL and the Buick LaCrosse have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura TL is a little wider than the Buick LaCrosse, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Acura TL takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Buick LaCrosse.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura TL doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Buick LaCrosse.

Performance
The Acura TL has less horsepower than the Buick LaCrosse, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TL and the Buick LaCrosse. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Acura TL as you will in the Buick LaCrosse.

Warranty
The Acura TL comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Buick LaCrosse.
