The 2014 Buick LaCrosse: For the driver who likes to arrive in luxury

See also

The Buick LaCrosse Touring was one of the most luxurious cars I have test driven lately. On a recent weekend getaway in Dana Point, when our family cruised in our LaCrosse into the valet roundabout in front of the Ritz-Carlton or the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, our stylish sedan looked perfectly at home alongside the Jaguars and Bentleys.

Besides its beautiful exterior styling, the interior is built for comfort, including eight-way driver’s seat adjustments plus and power lumbar support.

The cabin is generously proportion to be roomy for stretching out on long trips, and the safety features like side blind zone alert and rear cross traffic alert helps make trips more carefree, and the IntelliLink infotainment center with satellite radio and Bluetooth connection and navigation can be controlled hands-free so you can keep your eyes on the road, which is a good thing because the manual button operation of the navigation was cumbersome.

The LaCrosse exudes power inside and out, which you can feel as you accelerate the 2.4 ECOTEC DOHC 4-cylinder DI engine, but as you’d expect with a heavy, solid car like this, the mph at 21 on the highway is not the most fuel efficient, but then again you are in this car for the love of the ride. $32,769 or fully equipped at $39,240.
