2016 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick LaCrosse than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse.

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). Based on MSRP, the Buick LaCrosse is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. If you go with the Buick LaCrosse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
The Buick LaCrosse has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Buick LaCrosse has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick LaCrosse is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Buick LaCrosse has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The Buick LaCrosse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
