2017 Audi A4 vs. 2017 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 Audi A4, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A4 and the Buick LaCrosse in the front seats.

Convenience
The Audi A4 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Buick LaCrosse, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Buick LaCrosse. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A4 and the Buick LaCrosse have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A4 is a little narrower than the Buick LaCrosse, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Audi A4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Buick LaCrosse.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Buick LaCrosse.

Handling
The Audi A4 has about the same turning radius as the Buick LaCrosse, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A4 is significantly less powerful than the Buick LaCrosse. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A4 and the Buick LaCrosse. The Audi A4 has less cargo capacity than the Buick LaCrosse, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi A4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Buick LaCrosse.
