With OnStar telematics and 4G data, the Buick LaCrosse offers a fast Wi-Fi hotspot in its roomy cabin.
The LaCrosse is Buick's full size sedan. The model shown here is in top trim, called Premium 2 by Buick.
The LaCrosse is a front-wheel-drive car, although it can be had in all-wheel-drive format.
A high roofline creates comfortable cabin space.
Despite not having an air suspension, the LaCrosse offers a comfortable ride with competent handling.
Rather than simple slats in the grille, vertical members create a nice sculptural element.
Shown here is the available direct injection 3.6-liter engine. A mild hybrid, based on a four-cylinder, is also available.
These 20-inch wheels feature a pleasing design.
The trunk lid opens in such a way as to offer easy access to luggage.
Leather-covered power adjustable seats also feature heating and cooling.
The rear seat is very comfortable for two, and reasonable for three.
Buick uses a trim-line curving around the top of the dashboard and running into the doors.
At the top trim, the IntelliLink system, with its 8-inch touchscreen, comes standard.
Electric power steering makes the wheel easy to turn, but the steering remains responsive.
