2017 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2016 Hyundai Genesis 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 Hyundai Genesis. The Hyundai Genesis 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 Hyundai Genesis, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick LaCrosse will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Genesis. 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 and the Hyundai Genesis have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is a little narrower than the Hyundai Genesis, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Buick LaCrosse takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Genesis.

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

Handling
The Buick LaCrosse has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Genesis, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick LaCrosse and the Hyundai Genesis. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Buick LaCrosse as you will in the Hyundai Genesis.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick LaCrosse is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Genesis.
