2015 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick LaCrosse and the Toyota Avalon Hybrid 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid, 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Buick LaCrosse is much higher than that for the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is a little wider than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Buick LaCrosse transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Handling
The Buick LaCrosse has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick LaCrosse has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. The Buick LaCrosse has significantly less cargo room than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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