2014 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2014 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick LaCrosse and the Lexus ES 300h in the front seats.

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. The Buick LaCrosse and the Lexus ES 300h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is a little wider than the Lexus ES 300h, 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 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.

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.
