2016 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2016 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick LaCrosse will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. When looking at overall length, the Buick LaCrosse takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus ES 350.

Drivetrain
The Buick LaCrosse has much less torque than the Lexus ES 350, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Buick LaCrosse has a larger turning radius than the Lexus ES 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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.
