The LaCrosse is a sophisticated and thoroughly modern sedan. Quiet, roomy and luxurious, it offers responsive handling and a steady ride, qualities not normally associated with past Buicks. However, the cockpit is a bit narrow, the dashboard is busy, and styling restricts visibility and access. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder is mated to a light hybrid system.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

"It is the 4 cylinder e assist version of the vehicle. I am very impressed with the performance and the handling of the car, It has a lot of features but the one I like the most is the HUD, heads up display. They should be standard on ALL cars. For a 4 cylinder auto it is pretty peppy. I am used to a V6 and V8 autos but I on't moss them at all. The gas mileage is great. I get 33 to 36 MPG on trips."

Dave M., NC (2015 Buick LaCrosse)

"Greater acceleration than past Buicks. Handles like a sports car."
