2016 BMW 328d 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 BMW 328d, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW 328d will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse.

Convenience
With the BMW 328d you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Buick LaCrosse, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). The BMW 328d is somewhat more expensive 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 328d will cost more in transportation costs than the Buick LaCrosse.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 328d 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 328d, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Buick LaCrosse.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW 328d and the Buick LaCrosse do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW 328d has a smaller turning radius than the Buick LaCrosse, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 328d 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 328d and the Buick LaCrosse. The BMW 328d has less cargo capacity than the Buick LaCrosse, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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