2015 Volvo S80 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 Volvo S80, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Volvo S80 and the Buick LaCrosse in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volvo S80 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 Volvo S80 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 Volvo S80 and the Buick LaCrosse have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Volvo S80 is a little wider than the Buick LaCrosse, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Volvo S80 is slightly shorter than the Buick LaCrosse, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Volvo S80 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Buick LaCrosse.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Volvo S80 and the Buick LaCrosse.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volvo S80 and the Buick LaCrosse. The Volvo S80 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Buick LaCrosse.

Warranty
The Volvo S80 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Buick LaCrosse.
