Buick LaCrosse Test Drive

LaCrosse

The Buick LaCrosse tested – it was known as the Allure here until the arrival of this all-new, second-generation model – was the line-topping CXS model with 3.6-litre, 280-hp V-6 and equipped with handling and other upgrades that raised its base price from $40,795 to an as-tested $50, 960.

I drove it on the road for a week, and sampled a nearly identically one at last fall’s Canadian Car of the Year TestFest by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada.

A $47,600 version was entered in the Best New Family Sedan over $30,000 category that I helped judge, up against a $35,999 Ford Fusion Hybrid and $37,399 Ford Taurus, which won. As price is factored into the outcome, I’d have been interested to see how a base LaCrosse would have fared against the Taurus.
