2014 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2014 Lexus ES 350 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Buick LaCrosse offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus ES 350 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 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick LaCrosse as you will with the Lexus ES 350, 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 Lexus ES 350. 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 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is a little wider than the Lexus ES 350, 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 350.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Buick LaCrosse transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 350.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick LaCrosse is somewhat more powerful than the Lexus ES 350.

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 350. The Buick LaCrosse has less cargo capacity than the Lexus ES 350, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Buick LaCrosse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus ES 350.
