Though it may not turn head, the Lacrosse is understated good looks would likely remain fresh for years to come. From such classic elements of Buick signature portholes, the modern touches like standard LED tail lamps. The latest Lacrosse cruise elegant automotive design demands restraint.
2017 Buick Lacrosse Interior
2017 Buick Lacrosse inside high quality materials overlay fairly basic geometric shapes, to form one of the most elegantly boring dash designs in a category where elegantly boring dash designs reign supreme. And that's a compliment, because virtually everything with which you interact, is easy to see, use and reach. You until a link entertainment system embrace these qualities and spades. Thanks to its frame less high resolution 8-inch touchscreen, that's processing time, straightforward menus, apple carplay and android auto integration. Electronic gear selectors which we hated at first eventually grew on us. when it comes to classic qualities the Lacrosse continues to impress with a cavernous trunk, three quarters that are both spacious and accommodating, and exceptionally comfortable 8-way power front seats aided by four-way lumbar control. So we wouldn't mind the inclusion of adjustable thigh support. In the simplest of terms, the 2017 Lacrosse is cabin cater to those who favor comfort above all else.
It’s refreshing to get behind the wheel of a car, that leaves little question about its purpose in life. Without a sporting pretense or promises of driving thrills the Lacrosse is free to focus squarely on the qualities that matter most in large premium sedan. So with comfort and refinement top of mind the big Buick delivers on both counts. Starting with a cabin that's so quiet I can actually hear myself think. Ride quality is absorbed to the point that ruts and potholes are dispatched with barely a shake to the cabin. Outward visibility is good in every direction and turning radius is surprisingly good for a long wheelbase Sedan. Tying it all together is a smooth linear throttle tip-in and light responsive steering.
2017 Buick Lacrosse Horsepower
This simplified driving experience extends to the engine bay, for only one powertrain is offered at least for the time being. The lone motivator is a 3.6 liter v6 that sends 310 horsepower, and 282 pounds feet of torque through a smooth shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. With a little help from cylinder deactivation technology and an engine stop-start feature, you regrettably cannot deactivate. 2017 Buick Lacrosse returns reasonable EPA fuel economy scores with up to 31 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg in the city. Comparable to those of the Acura TLX v6 and conventionally powered Lexus ES though no match for the ES 300h hybrid then again a bass ES 300h carries a roughly seventy nine hundred dollar premium over an entry level across which apart from a standard moonroof matches and in some cases tops the Lexus of standard equipment roster. Yes you can build a $ 46,000 Lacrosse, but we believe the $ 33,000 based model offers the best bang for the buck. passive entry with push button start, rear parking sensors link to a backup camera, HID headlights, in the aforementioned eight-inch entertainment, center are just a sampling of what's included as standard. of course loaded lacrosse's offer highly recommendable features like full range adaptive cruise control, a premium audio system by Bose which smartly brings along additional active noise cancellation, panoramic moonroof, as well as less desirable add-ons like a sport-tuned suspension and 20-inch wheels that significantly degraded ride quality, and an utterly useless massage function for the front seat.
Aside from its direct competition, you can't consider a 2017 Buick Lacrosse without also taking a look at its mainstream platform partner the Chevrolet Impala. Swap in a gold bow tie and confiscate a few soft touch surfaces and what you're left with is an equally comfortable sedan for nearly five thousand dollars less. In a class where every model is spacious comfortable and refined no vehicle the Lacrosse included stands out from the pack. Aside from price picking the right full-size sedan, largely boils down to subjective qualities like design and perceived image. And that's a decision only you can make.
