SAFETY | 10 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal offset, side, and rear impacts; 'good,' roof strength; Top Safety Pick
IIHS

Five stars overall; five stars side crash; five stars frontal crash
NHTSA

Our biggest complaint with the interior of the LaCrosse remains the outward visibility. The thick A-pillars make for very prominent blind-spots when turning or running down a curvy road.
Autoblog

Rear visibility, however, is compromised by the car's high rear deck and thick roof pillars.
Edmunds


The 2012 LaCrosse earns one of the best ratings of any vehicle from the federal government—including five stars overall—and it was rated an IIHS Top Safety pick last year. In all, its combination of vaultlike construction, all the expected occupant-protection features, stable handling, and good outward visibility make the LaCrosse a top choice for shoppers who demand top safety.

Safety-tech options include a blind-spot warning system, adaptive cornering headlamps, and rear side thorax bags, and for 2012 the rear-view camera system is available without the nav system. A head-up display is also available.

 

Conclusion

In safety, the 2012 Buick LaCrosse is about as good as it gets—even if you include more expensive luxury brands.

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.
