2014 Buick LaCrosse Preview - New York International Auto Show
Why the 2014 Buick LaCrosse Matters:
The Buick LaCrosse has played a significant role in helping the premium automaker attract a new demographic of luxury-seeking buyers and lower the average age of its customers in a bid for renewed relevancy in the large car segment. The 2014 Buick LaCrosse doesn’t bring any dramatic changes to the table with this latest refresh, but what it does do is address a few design concerns associated with the previous model, as well as offer slightly more extroverted exterior styling. Maintaining the status quo where it works while adding a bit of personality to the LaCrosse’s looks help to keep an already effective car current.
What's New for the 2014 Buick LaCrosse:
- Revised exterior styling
- Simplified interior
- Additional active safety systems
What's New for 2014: Styling and Design:
Keen eyes will detect the slightly different shape of the 2014 Buick LaCrosse’s headlights, while the addition of LED lights across their top (as well as LED tail lights) ties the sedan into a trend that has already taken root amongst its European and Japanese premium rivals. A larger front grille is also present and accounted for, as are active shutters in the front fascia that help to improve aerodynamics, but aside from a few other trim details the LaCrosse presents a familiar, attractive shape. Inside, the Buick has seen its once-complicated center stack drop a significant number of buttons but still maintain the same functionality, which is always an appealing trade-off in today’s technologically-packed automobiles. New seats and an upgraded IntelliLink infotainment system are also on offer.
