2018 Audi A4 vs. 2018 Buick LaCrosse

There is an expected elegance in both the 2018 Audi A4 and the 2018 Buick Lacrosse. Expecting that you can never go wrong choosing one, will you join others who have made the wrong decision? You need to familiarize yourself first with everything these two car models can offer before you even purchase what suits your budget best. You can get help from the comparison we have made.

Design & Style

Loving the 2018 Audi A4 is easy with its sporty and edgy exterior. This car is definitely worth a second glance too. Consider how the maker made sure that elements of elegance are right in there. Inside it, you will notice how top notch quality materials have finished the surrounding details in the cabin. Of course, you will also be thrilled to find out that it comes packed with maximum comfort to accommodate the needs of passengers.

On the other hand, the 2018 Buick Lacrosse projects a good enough styling on its exterior. Inside it, however, you will take notice of how it misses the value of being a good car. Plastic has been included among materials that make up the cabin. The low seats on the front and rear limit space inside the cabin as well. This will dismay you as a car buyer.

Technology & Safety

Technology and safety features are likewise very crucial in helping you make that final decision. Come to think of how the Audi A4 has been gifted with an updated yet the same user-friendly MMI infotainment system. Knobs have been strategically placed so that they can be within the driver's reach. In terms of safety aids, you will love the inclusion of high-tech features ranging from blind spot monitoring and lane departure warning to the likes of automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.

When it comes to the 2018 Buick Lacrosse, expect that it has the features that are basic to the General Motor's line of cars. While that has been promised, you will be frustrated that the more technical features can only be enjoyed if you are willing to pay for the price. The navigation system gives it strong points but then again, it fails with the non-user-friendly Bose audio system.


There is a slight difference in the engines of the 2018 Audi A4 and the 2018 Buick Lacrosse. The A4 has a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine while the Lacrosse has a four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine under their respective hoods. Note though that the performance of the A4 are given higher points because it is able to produce up to as much as 273lb-ft of torque and 252 horsepower. Meanwhile, the 2018 Buick Lacrosse can only produce up to 187lb-ft of torque and 194 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The comparison obviously highlighted how strong the 2018 Audi A4 is as a choice for your next car. It defeats the Buick Lacrosse with its styling and its technology and safety features. Likewise, it is a winner in terms of engine performance. It should be the car you are looking for.
