It's easy to see why both models are so popular among drivers! Both offer impressive measurements and capabilities when it comes to efficiency and power at affordable prices. With that being said, when you examine the two directly, it's clear that the 2018 Toyota Camry holds the edge over the 2018 Buick LaCrosse.

The impressive aspect of the 2018 Toyota Camry is that although it has a starting MSRP $6,000 less than the Buick LaCrosse, it still actually outperforms the LaCrosse in key measurements like fuel economy and horsepower. Essentially, with the Camry, drivers pay less for more of a car than they would get with the LaCrosse.

Another key advantage the 2018 Toyota Camry has is its better crash-test ratings. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) was so impressed by the Camry's crash-test performance that it named it a Top Safety Pick, marking it as one of the safest vehicles available today. The 2018 Buick LaCrosse was not named a Top Safety Pick.

Of course, there's more to safety than just crash-test ratings, like safety features that prevent collisions in the first place. That's why the 2018 Toyota Camry comes loaded with advanced safety features and driver-assist technology to make the driving experience safer and less fatiguing. Safety features include:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection 
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
