2016 Volvo S80 vs. 2017 Buick LaCrosse Review

Comparison Review

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.

With the Volvo S80 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Buick LaCrosse, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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.

The Volvo S80 is about the same width as the Buick LaCrosse. The Volvo S80 is slightly shorter than the Buick LaCrosse, which may make it easier to park.

With its lower torque, the Volvo S80 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Buick LaCrosse.

The Volvo S80 has a smaller turning radius than the Buick LaCrosse, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Volvo S80 is significantly less powerful than the Buick LaCrosse. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volvo S80 and the Buick LaCrosse. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Volvo S80 as you will in the Buick LaCrosse.
