2017 Buick LaCrosse Review Jul 4, 2017 by Jet (Driver Weekly)
The 2017 Buick LaCrosse is all new with all the features you expect from a full-sized luxury sedan. The spaciousness of the LaCrosse means that adults can sit comfortably in any seat. This Buick is sure to keep you safe with its 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA. Factor in the latest technology, premium appointments, and plenty of power, and you are set.
Exterior to Make an Impression
The proportions of the LaCrosse show off a sleek new design. As you approach, heads will turn to look at the all-new winged grille with its tri-colored insignia. At night, the high-intensity-discharge xenon headlamps and their LED signature lighting make it easy to see everything in front of you while the LED taillights illuminate objects behind.
Quiet and Relaxing Interior
The interior of the LaCrosse is easily described as relaxing with Active Noise Cancellation detecting sounds you don’t want and canceling them out via the speaker system. There are also additional acoustic materials to further block sounds from interrupting your conversation. To make the 2017 Buick LaCrosse even more relaxing, opt for the moon-white ambient lighting. Sitting in the heated and ventilated front seats with their leather appointments and massaging functionality lets you get comfortable at the height of winter or summer. While driving, everything is within easy reach, including the smart pass-through storage in the new center console. The steering wheel has its own set of controls as well as heating to help in winter for those with poor circulation.
Safety You Can Count On
Between the standard and optional safety technologies, the 2017 LaCrosse is like a safety net, doing what it can to keep you and your loved ones safe. The warnings on the mirrors for Side Blind Zone Alert and Lane Change Alert are incredibly useful. Once you use the Rear Cross Traffic Alert, you will start to wonder what you did without it. Just some of the other available technologies include Forward Collision Warning and Front Automatic Braking while OnStar comes standard. There is even Automatic Park Assist to make parking in a perpendicular or parallel spot a breeze.
Tech to Keep You Entertained
In addition to safety technology, the Buick LaCrosse is loaded with everything you need to stay entertained and connected. The Buick IntelliLink system’s 8-inch touchscreen is intuitive to use and works with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless smartphone integration. The Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity is truly useful, particularly if you work from your car or are planning a road trip. Listen to music from your smartphone, via SiriusXM satellite radio, or through a Bluetooth-connected device. We appreciate that the myBuick app gets rid of the age-old question of whether you remembered to lock your car doors, as well as letting you monitor the Wi-Fi, remote start your sedan, send directions, and more.
