2011 Buick Lacrosse Features

Features
The level of equipment—and for that matter, the feel of the 2011 Buick LaCrosse—varies greatly with the trim level. Base CX models don't feel any more extravagant than a mid-range Chevy (albeit with somewhat more stylish design). But the CLX AWD and CXS models can feel like entry-level Cadillacs.

The LaCrosse offers a great combination of value packages from the entry-luxury sector, including a range of high-tech features and quality interior design and materials. All LaCrosses except the base CX feature hands-free Bluetooth phone connectivity, remote start, eight-way adjustable seating, and dual-zone climate control.

A new high-resolution digital center instrument panel screen is also available, as is a Heads-up Display (HUD), pushing the LaCrosse's feature set into the high-tech realm. A 40-gigabyte hard-drive-based navigation and entertainment system can also be fitted. The LaCrosse CXL and CXS get a standard Harman Kardon sound system that sounds pretty great no matter what the music.

Serious luxury-car comforts as well as high-tech conveniences are available, but they all drive the price of the 2011 LaCrosse well into true luxury-car territory.

Wheel configurations are one of those key differences; they range from standard 17-inch steel wheels with plastic covers in the base CX up to large 18- and 19-inch machined, painted, or chrome-plated alloys.
