2018 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2019 Toyota Avalon Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon than the Buick LaCrosse, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon, the Buick LaCrosse may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Buick LaCrosse will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Avalon, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Toyota Avalon, 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. The Buick LaCrosse and the Toyota Avalon have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is about the same width as the Toyota Avalon. When looking at overall length, the Buick LaCrosse takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Avalon.

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

Handling
The Buick LaCrosse has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Avalon, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick LaCrosse and the Toyota Avalon. The Buick LaCrosse has less cargo capacity than the Toyota Avalon, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick LaCrosse than that of the Toyota Avalon.
