2010 Buick LaCrosse Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick
"The Buick transformation continues with the 2010 Buick LaCrosse, a sculpted, responsive luxury sedan. This newest member of the Buick family has the highest quality and safety standards that customers have come to expect from Buick," General Motor said in self-praising statement after the IIHS announced the new results.
The 2010 Buick LaCrosse, which is already available through Buick's authorized dealership network, offers a choice of two engines, 3.0- and 3.6-liter, plus a six-speed automatic transmission, particularly aimed at reducing fuel consumption and providing a smoother ride.
The 2010 model has several advanced safety features, starting with front-, side- and roof-mounted head-curtain air bags, StabiliTrak stability- and traction-control system and ending with Buick's OnStar system.
“The new LaCrosse was created with great attention to detail, craftsmanship and advanced technology,” said Susan Docherty, Buick-Pontiac-GMC vice president. “It builds on the success of Enclave as the next step in Buick’s revitalization. And, as with Enclave, our goal is to attract a whole new buyer to our dealerships for LaCrosse.”
