2016 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2016 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. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse, drivers may find the Cadillac ATS a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick LaCrosse as you will with the Cadillac ATS, 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). Based on MSRP, the Buick LaCrosse is clearly a better financial choice over 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 a larger turning radius than the Cadillac ATS, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver 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.
