2018 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2018 Cadillac ATS 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 Cadillac ATS. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick LaCrosse and the Cadillac ATS in the front seats.

Convenience
The Buick LaCrosse will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Cadillac ATS, 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 Buick LaCrosse will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Cadillac ATS. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Buick LaCrosse will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Cadillac ATS.

Dimensions
Since the Buick LaCrosse is much wider than the Cadillac ATS, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Cadillac ATS.

Drivetrain
The Buick LaCrosse has much less torque than the Cadillac ATS, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick LaCrosse and the Cadillac ATS. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Buick LaCrosse will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Cadillac ATS.

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