Upshot: 2010 Buick LaCrosse is a Classy Car

The 2010 Buick LaCrosse luxury sedan gets a comprehensive redesign, offering all-wheel drive, advanced technology and safety features, and a choice of two V-6 engines.

The General Motors (GM) brand's LaCrosse interior and exterior have been crafted with contiguous design elements, clean lines and accents and materials in chrome, dark wood, and leather. The cabin features blue ambient lighting, from the center console, instrument panel and door panels, and Buick’s signature QuietTuning, an outstanding engineering process which noticeably absorbs noise and enhances the driver's ability to focus.

The 2010 LaCrosse includes in-dash navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, an auxiliary audio input and a USB port. Buick also offers a power rear-window sunshade and two DVD display screens in the seatbacks for back seat passengers.

Behind the steering wheel, LaCrosse delivers a 360-degree field of vision with an available alert system that notifies the driver if a vehicle in adjacent lanes is traveling in the driver’s blind spot. Available add-ons include a rear-view camera, which displays on the navigation system screen. Front, side and roof-mounted airbags are standard and GM's OnStar is included for the first year of ownership. The 2010 LaCrosse is being offered in three models: CX, CXL and CXS.

Production begins this summer in Kansas City, Kansas.
