2017 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2017 Volkswagen CC 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 Volkswagen CC. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen CC, the Buick LaCrosse may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Volkswagen CC requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Buick LaCrosse, 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). The Buick LaCrosse is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen CC. 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 Volkswagen CC.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is about the same width as the Volkswagen CC. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Buick LaCrosse, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen CC.

Drivetrain
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 Volkswagen CC.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick LaCrosse has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen CC. 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 Volkswagen CC. The Buick LaCrosse has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volkswagen CC.

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