Looking for a sedan with a high standard of quality and dependability, excellent luxury features, and impressive efficiency all in one attractive and affordable package? It might be a tall order, but today’s market definitely has some options for you. If you’ve got it narrowed down to the 2014 Buick LaCrosse vs the 2014 Nissan Maxima, this comparison will help give you an idea of some of the differences between these two high-end sedan models.
You’ll notice that the two models have very different engines that power them: If you’re a driver with a penchant for big engines, the Maxima might be a good pick for you. But if you’re interested in what a hybrid can do to increase your efficiency while still providing excellent performance, we recommend checking out the 2014 Buick Lacrosse. This hybrid electric I-4 offers a truly impressive 25 city/36 highway mpg – significantly better than the fuel economy of the Maxima, while still offering a capable 182 horsepower.
In addition to the engine differences between these two models, they also operate using very different types of transmission: a 6-speed automatic in the LaCrosse goes up against the Xtronic 2-speed continuously variable transmission in the Maxima. The final difference we point out has to do with the warranty coverage offered for each vehicle. One of the major advantages that 2014 Buick LaCrosse drivers will experience is a 24 month/24,000 mile maintenance warranty. Standard maintenance warranties are a rare thing to come upon these days, and we think it’s a big draw for the LaCrosse in this comparison.
