Buick Lacrosse Guide
Get the best online car shopping experience with expert reviews of the Buick Lacrosse. Read more to learn about the most important features and important factors to consider when researching the Buick Lacrosse.
Composed and cozy, the Buick Lacrosse is luxurious to the core with its plush interior and lengthy list of standard features. This mid-size sedan has been on the market since 2004 but ended its American run in 2019. It is known for consistently getting good safety ratings and garnering positive reviews due to its plethora of features and powerful powertrain configurations.
The Dynamic Drive PackageDynamic Drive is an optional package that gives the Buick Lacrosse adaptive suspension dampers, 20-inch wheels, and (at least on the front-wheel drive models) an upgraded suspension. It vastly improves handling, which is otherwise kind of bland. Dynamic Drive costs more but ultimately adds more value to the Lacrosse. Handling feels much more nimble and sprightly, and the upgraded suspension does well at smoothing out imperfections on all different types of road surfaces. You also get a much better sense of what exactly those front wheels are doing as you are driving along thanks to the adaptive dampers.
Driver Confidence II PackageAdvanced driver aids are becoming a staple among newer vehicles. Buick realizes this but has relegated some of them to the Driver Confidence II Package. Is it worth the extra cost? Well, to be blunt, yes. This is because the Driver Confidence II Package gives you Collision Preparation, a Safety Alert Seat, and Adaptive Cruise Control that works down to 0 mph. All of this comes on top of what you get in the Driver Confidence I Package, which includes helpful aids like Lane Departure Warning, a Head-Up Display, and Forward Collision Warning. All of these features are extremely handy and are known to work pretty well, save for Lane Keep being slightly intrusive. While they don't come standard, many drivers will likely want to have them equipped.
Navigation and Voice ControlWhile some vehicles have native navigation and voice control that struggle to understand inputs, the Buick Lacrosse's features are appropriately responsive. Navigation responds quickly and is able to understand most natural speech patterns. In the Buick, when you want to issue a command, you need only press the push to talk button. Learning the commands is relatively uncomplicated. For example, when you want to pair your phone, simply say "Pair phone.
The Secure BrakesThe Buick Lacrosse has brakes that inspire confidence. When hitting the brakes at 60 mph, you can make a panic stop in a respectable 119 feet. Not only is this a good number for its segment, but the vehicle remains composed even when you have to make a panic stop. Some drivers feel the pedal is slightly soft in certain braking situations, but you can come to a smooth stop.
Comfy SeatsThe Buick Lacrosse packs a lot of comfort into its seats. There is plenty of padding up front, giving the driver and front passenger lateral and lumbar support for hours. Although the seat bolstering does not hold you in place as well as it might in other vehicles, comfort is not impacted. Even the rear seats feel cozy despite narrow cushions. The front seats can be heated and ventilated, adding to comfort on days when there is inclement weather.
Climate ControlYou will need to spend time getting to know the touchscreen controls for the dual-zone climate control system. This learning curve is rather broad, but once you figure it out, you will be rewarded with a well-functioning system. You just have to get used to having few physical controls. The seats heat up and cool down quickly. The system itself also quickly pumps out air to both rows in the cabin and maintains that temperature as you drive.
