2016 Buick LaCrosse review
On the interior the 2016 Buick LaCrosse will offer a lot more luxury than before. However, this is not that easy to do considering the previous generation was quite well equipped. Adjustable front seats, satellite navigation, rear view camera and a triple zone automatic climate control system are just a few of the commodities the LaCrosse is going to feature on the most basic model. Standard features for all models are premium audio system, rearview camera system, Dual-zone automatic climate control, Electric parking brake, Leather-wrapped steering wheel, Remote keyless entry, Remote start and many more.

The outside of the car on the other hand will take a lot more from the Impala than before which is actually quite nice considering it will finally be an all American car. The roof will have an arch similar to that of a coupe while the front is going to be a lot more aggressive. Unlike the previous model there are three new 2016 Buick LaCrosse colors options: Dark Sapphire Blue Metallic, Graphite Gray Metallic and Ebony Twilight Metallic.
