2016 Dodge Charger vs. 2016 Buick LaCrosse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Dodge Charger than in the Buick LaCrosse, due to the Dodge Charger's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Charger and the Buick LaCrosse in the front seats.

Convenience
The Buick LaCrosse requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Dodge Charger, 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 Dodge Charger is somewhat more expensive than 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 Dodge Charger will cost more in transportation costs than the Buick LaCrosse.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Charger is much wider than the Buick LaCrosse, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Dodge Charger takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Buick LaCrosse.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Charger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Buick LaCrosse.

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

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Charger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Buick LaCrosse.
