2014 Chevrolet Impala vs. 2014 Buick LaCrosse Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Chevrolet Impala offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Buick LaCrosse with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Impala will require fewer stops at 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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Impala is clearly a better financial choice over the Buick LaCrosse. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Impala carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Buick LaCrosse.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Impala is significantly less powerful than the Buick LaCrosse. 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 Chevrolet Impala and the Buick LaCrosse. The Chevrolet Impala has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Buick LaCrosse.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Impala is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Buick LaCrosse.
