2017 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2016 Lexus ES 300h Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick LaCrosse offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus ES 300h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 300h, the Buick LaCrosse may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Lexus ES 300h 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick LaCrosse will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus ES 300h. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Buick LaCrosse will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Lexus ES 300h.

Dimensions
Since the Buick LaCrosse is much wider than the Lexus ES 300h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Lexus ES 300h.

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 Lexus ES 300h.

Handling
The Buick LaCrosse has about the same turning radius as the Lexus ES 300h, 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 Lexus ES 300h. 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 Lexus ES 300h. The Buick LaCrosse has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lexus ES 300h.

Warranty
The Buick LaCrosse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus ES 300h.
