The 2019 model, like all the early ones, is characterized by a mild stroke and an excellent cabin. And also a stylish modern design, which is hard to miss. But what else is so special about this car? In this review we will consider all the advantages and disadvantages of this model. If you have any doubts about his purchase, we will dispel them.

Without any exaggeration, the Buick LaCrosse 2019 is a huge vehicle. The LaCrosse is nearly 16 feet (ca. 5 m), 5 inches long. Its curb weight ranges from 3,490 to 3,840 pounds (1.74 t).  This car has a lot of space inside and is surprisingly very soft going. What is very important, this vehicle boasts the highest reliability rating. For a large family, this particular model will be the best and most convenient option. In our opinion, the model perfectly matches its price and is worthy of attention when choosing a large auto.

Buick LaCrosse 2019 is the generation of cars that appeared on the market back in 2017 and have already managed to win the love of many drivers. The 2019 model looks almost no different from its predecessors. This year, manufacturers added a new Sport Touring finish. In 2018, Buick added a standard rearview camera and an available MyLink infotainment system.

Interior

The car has five seats, which is very convenient so there will be enough space for passengers. As standard, the seat upholstery is made of faux leather, but you can order a model with leather seats as well. We also can give an advice what car seat covers you can order on the market. Standard interior look like that, but you can upgrade it and buy some “interior add”, for example you can order additionally  seat heating and ventilation. For more comfortable trips in the cabin of this car, manufacturers have provided two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors on the rear outboard seats. Basically, the interior of this auto looks stylish, but it is worth noting that a little plastic spoils it. In addition, drivers noted that LaCrosse’s lower anchors are located deep in the seat and require too much force to attach seat belts. The trunk of this model is quite roomy and comfortable. A 15 cubic feet (0.42 m3) boot is a little bit for a car of this class, but enough to fit even very large items, for example a big box.

Infotainment

The model is equipped with an infotainment system that is very convenient to use. Even when you turn it on for the first time, you will understand how to use it. The system has an 8-inch touch screen and 8 speakers.  Add-ons such as Bluetooth, USB port, Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available too. These features help you keep in touch with your phone at any time, even if you are driving. For example, connect your smartphone to the car and turn it on through the display in your vehicle.  

Riding

Drivers note relatively level-out handling. However, they also emphasized that during tight maneuvers or quick turns, the driver may feel some inconvenience. Adaptive suspension that there is in this models helps to improve the handling and ride performance. The manufacturers of this car provide the opportunity to choose front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The first option is standard.

Warranty

The vehicle boasts of 4.5 out of 5 from J.D. Power, also it has a 4-year warranty from bumper to bumper and a 6-year powertrain warranty. After expiring 4-year warranty it will be reasonable to use bumper guards if the traffic near you is heavy.

LaCrosse Safety

This car received fairly high marks from national organizations involved in road safety. Highway Safety Insurance Institute conducted several crash tests of this car and gave a rating of “Good” in most of them.  Some poor grades were due to the fact that according to the masters, in the dark, the headlights did not illuminate the road well enough. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration rated this auto 5 points out of 5 possible. These are very high ratings that can convince any driver of the reliability of this vehicle. But if this is not enough for you, we will tell you more about why this car received such high marks from national organizations. We have noted several functions in this vehicle and want you to pay attention to them.

Safety is ensured by a standard rear view camera and rear parking sensors too. It is also worth noting presence of such functions as parking assistance, changing lanes, collision warning, pedestrian detection and emergency braking. All these functions make this car very comfortable and safe. 

Infotainment system makes your trips as comfortable as possible. In many car models, such systems need to be purchased for a fee, right there everything goes in the basic settings. With the help of this assistant you will make your trips as safe as possible since the system will help you to park, warn about pedestrians who suddenly appear on the road. 

For safety, it is very important that an additional reaction to emergency situations is also included, for example, a collision warning. If the system understands that the vehicles that is moving in front of you is too close and you can crash into it, the system will warn you. If you do not take any action, then even automatic braking may work. 

Parents of teenagers need to pay attention to Teen Driver systems that also available, it allows you to set a speed limit and control teen driving habits and behavior. This system is also included in the factory settings, which makes this system very attractive.
Not worth saving on your car’s windshield visibility. The new windshield wiper blades is that, what helps in the first place.

Conclusion

The Buick LaCrosse 2019 is a very nice big car so we concluded that it is reliable and comfortable. Here you can find enough space for 5 passengers and more than a convenient ride. There are several trim levels for this model and you can chose which is more convenient for you needs. The basic design includes a simple look inside the cabin with leatherette seats. However, you can choose it with leather seats.  The car also boasts of high safety ratings as evidenced by assessments of national organization and safety functions, which we described in the article. Therefore, we believe that this models is a good choice for people who is looking for a large and reliable auto.
