CG Says: Buick’s large car receives many updates for 2014. These include revised exterior styling, an updated interior, and the latest version of Buick’s IntelliLink infotainment system. Many new radar- and camera-based safety features and the Ultra Luxury Interior Package are added to the options list. We consider the LaCrosse a large car, while GM thinks it competes against premium-midsize entries such as the Lexus ES 350. LaCrosse acquits itself very well in both segments, though maybe not against sportier models like the Chrysler 300 or Acura TL. Shoppers who are looking at any car in this price class would do well to give LaCrosse a close look.
