2017 Ford Fusion Energi vs. 2017 Buick LaCrosse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Ford Fusion Energi than in the Buick LaCrosse, due to the Ford Fusion Energi's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Ford Fusion Energi will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse.

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 Ford Fusion Energi will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. In this case, the Ford Fusion Energi will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Buick LaCrosse.

Dimensions
The Ford Fusion Energi is about the same width as the Buick LaCrosse. The Ford Fusion Energi is slightly shorter than the Buick LaCrosse, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion Energi 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 Ford Fusion Energi and the Buick LaCrosse. The Ford Fusion Energi has significantly less cargo room than the Buick LaCrosse, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Fusion Energi is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Buick LaCrosse.
