2016 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2017 Honda Accord 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 Honda Accord. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick LaCrosse and the Honda Accord in the front seats.

Convenience
The Honda Accord requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Buick LaCrosse, 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). The Buick LaCrosse will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Honda Accord, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Honda Accord.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is about the same width as the Honda Accord. 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 Honda Accord.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick LaCrosse has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Accord. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick LaCrosse and the Honda Accord. The Buick LaCrosse has less cargo capacity than the Honda Accord, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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