The 2012 Buick LaCrosse has both style and attitude, with a curvy, bold look and advanced interior design. Ride, handling and overall refinement are up to world-class standards. From behind the wheel, the LaCrosse stands on the same high ground in terms of features and the driving experience, as many luxury-brand cars, yet it costs thousands less. CX models start below $30,000, but CXS models, fully loaded with tech features can rise above the $40,000 mark.
