Buick LaCrosse Overview

Thanks to its luxurious, well-finished, and roomy interior, and a supple ride, the LaCrosse is a competitive large sedan. Buyers can choose from a refined and powerful 3.6-liter V6 or a mild-hybrid eAssist four-cylinder that still delivers good performance as well as 26-mpg overall. Its engine shuts off at idle to save fuel. Handling is responsive. Rear-seat room is generous, and the seats are well padded and comfortable, though the cockpit is narrow. Exterior styling compromises visibility fore and aft, but a rear-view camera is standard. Controls are quite simple for a luxury car. Reliability of the V6 has improved to average, and the four-cylinder is above average.
