KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Keith Buglewicz - Updated Date: 6/27/2014


Buick wants to appeal to younger buyers, and the 2015 LaCrosse sedan is at the forefront of that effort. It's handsome without being in-your-face about its styling, and it comes very well equipped even in base models. On the road, it's comfortable and quiet, with a pair of refined drivetrains to choose from: a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder with GM's "eAssist" mild-hybrid system, or a 304-horsepower V6. Conservatively handsome, well equipped, capable, quiet, comfortable, and refined, the LaCrosse presents well as a thoroughly credible alternative to import brands like the new Hyundai Genesis and Acura TLX sedans. You can even add the traction enhancements of all-wheel drive. This year, the Buick LaCrosse expands its technology portfolio as well, with 4G LTE and a wireless hotspot.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're looking for a premium large near-luxury sedan, but don't want to go the me-too route of a Lexus ES, the 2015 Buick LaCrosse offers up a compelling alternative, all while satisfying your inner "buy American" voice.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Buick is definitely an ascendant brand, but for many up-and-coming car shoppers, it's not quite there yet. Competitors like the Lexus ES or Acura TLX might be more satisfying to the badge-conscious sedan buyer.

What's New for 2015

The 2015 Buick LaCrosse gets some noteworthy technology improvements. GM's OnStar now uses 4G LTE technology, and the LaCrosse gets a standard Wi-Fi hotspot to share the Internet connection. The LaCrosse also benefits from the new Siri Eyes Free, a comprehensive integration of the speech recognition technology from Apple's iPhone.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The 2015 Buick LaCrosse eAssist light-hybrid boosts fuel economy and performance, but never operates in a fully electric capacity like a Lexus ES 300 hybrid. However, eAssist's benefits are real, and the system is virtually transparent in its operation. The 15-hp electric motor helps the 182-hp 4-cylinder gasoline engine during acceleration, and when slowing, the motor becomes a generator to recharge the lithium-ion battery pack. The gasoline engine also shuts down at stop signs, but restarts are devoid of the shudder found in many stop-start systems in non-hybrid cars. Whether you choose the eAssist or V6, the LaCrosse boasts competent handling, a smooth ride and strong brakes. It's no sports sedan – the steering is particularly numb, for example – but for long distance cruising, the quiet cabin, excellent audio and comfortable highway ride are ideal. In town, hill-assist prevents rollback on uphill launches, handy in places like San Francisco.

Favorite Features

WI-FI HOTSPOT
You're on a road trip, yet the two kids in the back seat aren't fighting. Why? One's watching a streaming Netflix movie on his iPad, while the other is video-chatting with her friends over FaceTime. Thanks to the 2015 Buick LaCrosse's built-in 4G LTE and Wi-Fi hotspot, it's no fantasy.

HEAD-UP DISPLAY
The head-up display on the 2015 LaCrosse sedan is one of the best we've seen. It displays speed, navigation instructions, audio status (including song titles) and other key information in your line of sight, seemingly out there over the hood, with easily adjusted brightness and vertical position.
