Buick LaCrosse

2017
Buick LaCrosse 2017 sedan Trim Shown: 2017 Essence sedan FWD Automatic
Buick's flagship sedan delivers what you'd expect. The new LaCrosse rides comfortably and features a well-trimmed and quiet cabin with a spacious rear seat. Paired with an eight-speed automatic, the smooth 3.6-liter V6 supplies plenty of power and a decent 24 mpg overall. The LaCrosse is one of the few offerings in the large-sedan class that is available with all-wheel drive. Handling is responsive but not sporty. The ride is cushy and absorbent, but we would skip the optional 20-inch tires, which transmit too much harshness to the passengers. Cabin access and visibility are compromised by the car's low stance. Most controls are easy to use, including the IntelliLink touch-screen infotainment system, but the unintuitive shifter proves maddening. Advanced electronic safety features are available only on high-end trims.

2010-2016
2010 Redesign Year
Buick LaCrosse 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Base
The best versions of the LaCrosse are those built after this redesign. The model boasts a very well finished interior and comfortable seats, alsong with a firm and composed ride. All of this plus responsive handling made the LaCrosse an impressive and competitive large sedan for the first time. Optional electronic safety features include forward collision alert, lane departure warning and rear cross-traffic alert. However, driver visibility is difficult due to the thick front and rear roof pillars. Updates for 2014 included a new interior with simplified controls and new seats. WiFi became standard in 2015, along with a rearview camera. The 2016 models got a new touchscreen display screen and two USB ports.

2005-2009
2005 Redesign Year
Buick LaCrosse 2009 Trim Shown: 2009 Sedan
The LaCrosse debuted for 2005. Luxury features are plentiful, while attention to detail is solidly up to task. LaCrosse also handles soundly. Additionally, it has a quiet and comfortable ride, along with beautiful interior fit and finish. Overall though, it wasn't a significant leap forward from preceding Buick models. Rear seat room is tight and the base 3.8-liter V6 is thirsty and sounds coarse. The up-level 3.6-liter V6 is more refined. A 5.3-liter V8 lasted from 2008 until the 2010 redesign. Overall, this version of the LaCrosse scores well in our testing, though it slightly lags the class leaders.
