Talk of the 2019 Buick LaCrosse and you will be talking about the most traditional sedan left in the brand’s lineup. Most of the users rate it as a good sedan because it’s quiet and tame. The other thing is that it offers the traditional Buick experience offering plenty of style, compelling options, and refinement. These features and many more make it the perfect match in the market putting most of its competitors down.
The 2019 LaCrosse model is rated at 6.4 out of 10 with most of the points coming from the comfortable interior and the attractive style it features. Several other features add up directly when you talk about this sedan.
The LaCrosse has seen several upgrades and redesigns since 2017 with the major upgrade happening in 2018 when a new hybrid Powertrain that paired 2.5 liter inline-4 was introduced. However, this offers a small boost to the fuel economy. The manufacturer sells the sedans with an all-wheel-drive featuring 9-speed automatic which adds to 3.6-liter V-6.
Although the major redesigns happened last year, there are several added features that are included in the 2019 model. The 2019 model features a four-door which offers enough room for five passengers. The manufacturer has made this vehicle to maintain the look of a traditional car but behave as a new and a modern car. They have also included a couple of new technological features and some additional safety features.
Performance and Fuel Economy
As I have already stated, this vehicle comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder eAssist hybrid system. This makes 194 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. It is also mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission of driving the front wheel. The vehicle is also developed to make it easier for smoother stops and start transmissions. The best and highly rated feature in terms of performance is the eAssist system which is rated 25/35 city/highway.
LaCrosse Safety Features
NHTSA has recently given this SUV a 5-star rating. Additionally, the SUV received a front crash prevention designation of the highest possible rating by IIHS. All the tests were performed on a machine equipped with the Driver confidence package 2. During the test, the LaCrosse fully avoided the crash in the 12-mph low-speed auto brake test. The 25-MPH high-speed auto brake test shows the impact reduced by 24-mph.
The 2019 Buick LaCrosse features a blind spot/lane change alerts and the cross traffic alerts. IT also features driver assist features, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian detection, and automatic cruise control. Lastly, on technology, the machine features forward collision alerts and safety alert seat.
As a matter of fact, the 2019 Buick LaCrosse features several adorable interior features and a well-designed machine for that matter. Just remember the LaCrosse is the only remaining full-size sedan in the Buick’s lineup. It features enough room for five people. Additionally, it features 42 and 38 inches legroom in the front seat and 38 inches in the rear seat. The trunk space is also 15 cubic feet. The other advantage is the battery that is included in the four-cylinder eAssist model which reduces the space to 14.3 cubic feet. It also features a significant cargo area that most consumers feel is enough.
Buick just like any other automaker is in a rush to adopt every technological invention to make sure they are up to date. The system comes with an 8 speaker stereo, keyless entry, and ignition with remote start. The other feature is the 4G wireless hotspot and an 8.0-inch touch screen featuring the Android Auto and Apple Carplay. Additionally, it features a sight and sound package with HD radio and 11 speakers Bose audio system.
Comfort and Quality
Over the past decade, the manufacturer has a lot of effort and invested a lot of energy in making sure the machine has improved greatly over the last few decades. The machine is awarded 7/10 in regard to comfort and quality. Featuring highly comfortable seats and spacious, head, leg, and shoulder room. The seats are comfortable and have a high-end feel.
The front seats are power adjustable. The model seems to be very luxurious in regard to interior design and space. It has trims that offer a massaging feature for the front seats which makes the machine a long-haul champ.
With the tests that have been carried out, every consumer is impressed with its reflexes. If you care about fuel economy, then this is a good match for you. However, some drawbacks were found with the use of cheap materials in the dashboard and center console. With all the features presented above and the advancements in technology and the comfortability, this is a good matching sedan for a small family or for other activities at home. The 2019 model of the LaCrosse joins the ranks in the form of the Sport Touring. The first and foremost indicator is the 19-inch wheels and an all-black grill.
