2016 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2016 Chrysler 300 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick LaCrosse offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Chrysler 300 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick LaCrosse and the Chrysler 300 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 Chrysler 300, 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 Chrysler 300. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chrysler 300.

Dimensions
Since the Buick LaCrosse is much slimmer than the Chrysler 300, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Buick LaCrosse takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Chrysler 300.

Drivetrain
The Buick LaCrosse has much less torque than the Chrysler 300, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Buick LaCrosse has about the same turning radius as the Chrysler 300, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick LaCrosse is somewhat more powerful than the Chrysler 300.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick LaCrosse and the Chrysler 300. The Buick LaCrosse has significantly less cargo room than the Chrysler 300, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Chrysler 300 offers a little more coverage in its basic warranty than the Buick LaCrosse.
