Buick LaCrosse Overview

The LaCrosse is a competitive large sedan, with a refined and powerful 3.6-liter V6 that returns 20 mpg overall. The four-cylinder eAssist mild hybrid delivers good performance and 26 mpg overall, shutting off at idle to save fuel. The ride is steady and supple, and handling is responsive. The interior is luxurious and well finished, and rear-seat room is generous. But the exterior styling compromises visibility fore and aft, and the cockpit is narrow. A 2014 freshening included a new interior with simplified controls and new seats. Reliability of the four-cylinder has improved to average but the V6 remains below average.
