2014 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2014 Audi A4 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick LaCrosse than the Audi A4. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick LaCrosse and the Audi A4 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick LaCrosse as you will with the Audi A4, 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). The Buick LaCrosse is somewhat more expensive than the Audi A4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Buick LaCrosse and the Audi A4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is a little wider than the Audi A4, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Buick LaCrosse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi A4.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Buick LaCrosse and the Audi A4 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick LaCrosse has a much more powerful engine than the Audi A4. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick LaCrosse and the Audi A4. The Buick LaCrosse has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Audi A4.

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