2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS

By Kurt Gensheimer

Blings:

  • Interior silent as a monastery
  • Incredible amount of rear legroom
  • Beautifully crafted inside and out

Dings:

  • Visibility so bad it should come with a Surgeon General warning
  • Torque steer (yes, it’s front-wheel drive)
  • Low rear door clearance devours heads

Ruling: It might be riddled with blind spots, but the new LaCrosse is also riddled with style, performance, luxury and value.

Never before has an automotive brand represented two completely polar opposite demographics as Buick does in the United States and China. In the U.S., the cache of Buick has grown as old and decrepit as it owners, whereas in China, Buick has emerged as the automotive brand representing a thirtysomething’s arrival into the material world. In China, the average Buick owner is a youthful 32. In the U.S.? More than twice as old.

2010 Buick LaCrosse

The completely redesigned 2010 Buick LaCrosse luxury sedan is the newest example of the globally influenced product renaissance at Buick. It offers all-wheel drive, a suite of advanced intelligent personal technologies and safety features, as well as three efficient, powerful engines.

I was able to test drive this vehicle last week, and I am still amazed at the amount of car you get for the price (approx. $32,000-$38,000). The car handles well and has power pulling away from stops in the city. What impressed me the most? First, the overall look. The body design reminds me of a Lexus. When I walked up and viewed it initially, I thought it was anything but a Buick. After studying it at length, I found several refreshing updated Buick-style elements within the body. Right down the street, there was an ’09 LaCrosse, and it’s like the ‘10’s little stepbrother. This is a completely different car from front to back. It looks like a luxury high-end vehicle, but it’s affordable and stylish, with good size and great fuel economy (around 32 mpg highway).
