2014 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid 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 Sonata Hybrid. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Buick LaCrosse, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, 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 Destination Charge for the Buick LaCrosse is much higher than that for the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is a little wider than the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Buick LaCrosse does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick LaCrosse has a much more powerful engine than the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. 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 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. The Buick LaCrosse has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

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