2018 INFINITI Q50 vs. 2017 Buick LaCrosse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick LaCrosse than the INFINITI Q50, due to its greater head- and legroom. The INFINITI Q50 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the INFINITI Q50 as you will with the Buick LaCrosse, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 INFINITI Q50 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 INFINITI Q50 will cost more in transportation costs than the Buick LaCrosse.

Dimensions
Since the INFINITI Q50 is much slimmer than the Buick LaCrosse, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The INFINITI Q50 is slightly shorter than the Buick LaCrosse, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the INFINITI Q50 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Buick LaCrosse.

Handling
The INFINITI Q50 has about the same turning radius as the Buick LaCrosse, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The INFINITI Q50 has less horsepower than the Buick LaCrosse, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the INFINITI Q50 and the Buick LaCrosse. The INFINITI Q50 has less cargo capacity than the Buick LaCrosse, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty for the INFINITI Q50 offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the Buick LaCrosse in terms of months/miles.
