The 2018 Buick LaCrosse is a proper flagship, a refined and comfortable sedan with only a few quirks.

Pros
Elegant styling inside and out
Good infotainment system
Silent cruiser
New mild-hybrid is relatively thrifty

Cons
Advanced safety tech is pricey

A new base engine debuts for 2018. Dubbed eAssist, it features a small electric motor and battery in addition to a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The result is exceptional fuel economy for a large sedan. The V6 engine also gets a new nine-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel-drive availability is extended to the Essence trim level.

PROS
Comfortable and composed ride on rough roads
Quiet and genuinely luxurious interior
Surprisingly adept handling with Dynamic Drive package
Good fuel economy

CONS
Questionable price jump from base trim level to Preferred
Low-mounted seats front and back may limit comfort
