Professional auto reviewers say the Buick LaCrosse has a spacious interior and a user-friendly infotainment system, but how is it drive? Hi! I am Jim Sharifi, Senior Editor with U.S. News Best Cars. In this video we'll take a closer look at the LaCrosse's performance.
Two power trains are available for the LaCrosse each paired with a six speed automatic transmission. The LaCrosse eAssist comes with a 2.4 Liter 4 cylinder engine and an electric motor which deliver 182 HP, a 304 HP, 3.6 L V-6 engine is a no-cost option and all-wheel drive is available.
The LaCrosse eAssist gets 25 miles per gallon in the city and 36 on the highway which is very good for a large car and the V-6 model gets 18 miles per gallon in the city and 28 on the highway which is slightly low for the class.
While a few reviewers think the LaCrosse eAssist could use more power. Most agree that the V-6 model offers strong acceleration. The transmission earns praise for its smooth shifts though some reviewers write that it doesn't shift as quickly as they would like.
A few recommend skipping all-wheel-drive model, noting that it feels less nimble than the front wheel drive version; critics agree that the lacrosse has a comfortable quiet ride and competent handling for a large car. Although the steering could provide more feedback, they say that the LaCrosse is easy to steer and that the brakes offers strong stopping power and good pedal feel.
