2017 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2017 Buick Regal 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 Buick Regal. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick LaCrosse and the Buick Regal 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 Buick Regal, 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 Buick Regal. 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 Buick Regal have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is about the same width as the Buick Regal. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Buick LaCrosse, which is slightly longer than the Buick Regal.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick LaCrosse is somewhat more powerful than the Buick Regal.

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

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