2017 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2016 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

The Buick LaCrosse offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Avalon Hybrid with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. 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.

With the Toyota Avalon Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Buick LaCrosse, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Hybrid, 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

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.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Buick LaCrosse does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

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.

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.

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 a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

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