2015 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2014 Lincoln MKS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick LaCrosse offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lincoln MKS with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Lincoln MKS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse.

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

Dimensions
Since the Buick LaCrosse is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKS, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Buick LaCrosse is slightly shorter than the Lincoln MKS, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Buick LaCrosse doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKS.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Buick LaCrosse and the Lincoln MKS.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick LaCrosse and the Lincoln MKS. The Buick LaCrosse has significantly less cargo room than the Lincoln MKS, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Buick LaCrosse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKS.
