2016 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2017 Chevrolet Impala Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick LaCrosse offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Chevrolet Impala with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick LaCrosse as you will with the Chevrolet Impala, 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). Whether you pick the Buick LaCrosse or the Chevrolet Impala, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Chevrolet Impala.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is about the same width as the Chevrolet Impala. The Buick LaCrosse is slightly shorter than the Chevrolet Impala, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Buick LaCrosse and the Chevrolet Impala.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick LaCrosse and the Chevrolet Impala. The Buick LaCrosse has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Impala, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick LaCrosse than that of the Chevrolet Impala.
