2015 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2014 Kia Cadenza 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 Kia Cadenza. The Kia Cadenza 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 Kia Cadenza, 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 Kia Cadenza. 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 Kia Cadenza.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is about the same width as the Kia Cadenza. When looking at overall length, the Buick LaCrosse takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Cadenza.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Buick LaCrosse transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Kia Cadenza.

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

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick LaCrosse is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Cadenza.
