2017 Volkswagen CC vs. 2018 Buick LaCrosse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Volkswagen CC than in the Buick LaCrosse, due to the Volkswagen CC's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen CC, drivers may find the Buick LaCrosse a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volkswagen CC 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). 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
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Volkswagen CC transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Buick LaCrosse.

Handling
The Volkswagen CC 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 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. The Volkswagen CC 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 of the Volkswagen CC is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Buick LaCrosse.
