2014 Volkswagen CC vs. 2015 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 Volkswagen CC, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Volkswagen CC and the Buick LaCrosse in the front seats.

Convenience
The Volkswagen CC 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Volkswagen CC 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 Volkswagen CC will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Buick LaCrosse.

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

Drivetrain
The Volkswagen CC 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 Volkswagen CC 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 Volkswagen CC and the Buick LaCrosse. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Volkswagen CC as you will in the Buick LaCrosse.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Volkswagen CC is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Buick LaCrosse.
