2016 Buick LaCrosse vs 2016 Chrysler 300
Buick may not be as well-known as Cadillac in terms of their luxury qualities, but every Buick vehicle is packed with premium equipment and delivers a similarly luxurious experience at a more affordable cost. As a full-size, flagship sedan, the LaCrosse is the pinnacle of that experience, so we thought we’d compare it to a similarly underrated flagship sedan by taking a closer look at the 2016 Buick LaCrosse vs 2016 Chrysler 300. Chrysler may not be a luxury brand, but its flagship is certainly a top-of-the-line option worthy of competition with the LaCrosse.
Advantages of the 2016 Buick LaCrosse
Which is proven by taking a look at the table above. Both vehicles are very comparable and in fact, the Chrysler 300 even topples the Buick LaCrosse in terms of cargo capacity, as it can deliver an extra 3 cubic feet of space within the trunk. But the truth is, that advantage only came about because the Chrysler 300 is a full-size luxury car while the LaCrosse is only a midsize. With that in mind, you might think the advantage would be even greater.
While towing capacity might not be as important here as it would be in a utility vehicle or truck, it’s certainly nice to know that your sedan can hall 1,000 lbs., and both of these flagships can. But where the LaCrosse has its true advantage is in terms of power. It may only have an extra 12 horsepower at face value, but the fact that its curb weight is a bit less gives it an even bigger boost in power, as a lighter vehicle doesn’t need quite as much power to move just as well.
