2017 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2017 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. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 350, the Buick LaCrosse may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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). Whether you pick the Buick LaCrosse or the Lexus ES 350, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 350.

Dimensions
Since the Buick LaCrosse is much wider than the Lexus ES 350, 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 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.

Handling
The Buick LaCrosse has about the same turning radius as the Lexus ES 350, allowing equal maneuverability 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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Buick LaCrosse as you will in the Lexus ES 350.

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