2019 Buick Lacrosse vs. Its Competition

2019 Buick Lacrosse

The Buick LaCrosse competes against near-luxury and luxury full-size sedans that prioritize ride comfort.

The Chrysler 300 is relatively aged, but comfortable and quiet.

It lacks a hybrid powertrain like the Buick, but offers an old-school V-8 underhood for traditionalists.

The Kia Cadenza is similarly quiet, but its anonymous styling compared to the rest of the class won't turn many heads.

The Lexus ES is new this year, with an expressive look and hybrid option.

We haven't yet driven it, but will report back once we do.

The Nissan Maxima is the sporty pick in the class, but its interior isn't as spacious as others.

The Toyota Avalon is new for 2019 and offers a hybrid powertrain as a reasonable extra-cost add-on.
