2014 BMW 328 vs. 2014 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 BMW 328, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW 328 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse.

Convenience
The BMW 328 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 BMW 328 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 BMW 328 and the Buick LaCrosse have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 328 is much slimmer than the Buick LaCrosse, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 328, 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 BMW 328 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Buick LaCrosse.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 328 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 BMW 328 and the Buick LaCrosse. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 328 as you will in the Buick LaCrosse.

Warranty
The BMW 328 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Buick LaCrosse.
