The cabin remains blissfully quiet without becoming a sensory deprivation chamber, as there's just enough wind and road noise to remind you that you're not sitting on your couch.

Consumer Guide

The 2011 Buick LaCrosse is a very spacious large sedan, and its generous proportions pay off especially for rear-seat passengers, where the seats are adult-sized and you can actually fit three adults across. Cargo room is ample as well, though nothing close to Town Car standards.

Front seats in the LaCrosse are nothing to grumble about—they're a bit soft but long-distance comfortable nevertheless. A wide range of materials, including plastic, wood and leather, with quality rising as you move up the model line—although the faux wood in some models feels a little out of place. Faux stitching on the dashboard and well-upholstered and bolstered seats make for a more luxurious setting than might be expected from the LaCrosse's mid-market pricing, and the top-level CXS gets upgraded perforated leather and ventilated heating and cooling features, along with more adjustability and memory settings.

Ride quality is impressive, and the interior is very well hushed from road and wind noise. There's only one nit: The 3.6-liter V-6 is a little raspy-sounding in this application and its character doesn't marry so well with the otherwise sophisticated and supremely muted and isolated feel of the car.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
