TheCarConnection.com notes that the 2008 Buick LaCrosse includes a fairly good, if not lavish, number of standard and optional features.

ConsumerGuide reports four Buick LaCrosse 2008 trim levels: CX, CXL, CXS, and Super. Cars.com reports that standard features across all trims "include XM Satellite Radio, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and remote start." ConsumerGuide lists additional amenities on this year's Buick LaCrosse: "interior air filter, OnStar assistance system w/one year service, tilt/telescopic leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls, cruise control, cloth upholstery, front bucket seats, 6-way power driver seat, center console, power mirrors, power windows, power door locks, remote keyless entry, ...AM/FM/CD player...tachometer, intermittent wipers, illuminated visor mirrors, rear defogger, automatic headlights, floormats, Theft-deterrent system, 225/60R16 tires, [and] wheel covers."

In terms of what differentiates the trims, Edmunds writes that moving up to the "more upscale LaCrosse CXL" gives buyers "alloy wheels, leather upholstery, wood-grain trim, heated front seats and a driver's power lumbar adjustment." The CXS trim of the Buick LaCrosse includes "a smoother and more powerful V6, 17-inch alloy wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, a quicker steering ratio and a split-folding rear seat." Popular Mechanic notes that on the Super trim, "Eighteen-inch wheels with 50 aspect ratio tires are standard," while Edmunds adds that the trim also has "V8 power...a further upgraded suspension, larger brakes and leather seating with unique woven inserts."

Kelley Blue Book mentions that Buick LaCrosse 2008 "options vary by trim and include a power sunroof, six-way power passenger seat, heated front seats, MP3 audio, rear spoiler and StabiliTrak stability control (CXS)." According to ConsumerGuide, some of these options for the 2008 Buick LaCrosse include: "Rear-obstacle-detection system, heated power mirrors, 6-way power passenger seat, automatic day/night rearview mirror, universal garage door opener, [and] rear map lights." Cars.com also notes that the Buick LaCrosse 2008 "top-of-the-line Super gets a silver-colored center stack and unique gauges."

Edmunds does point out that "popular high-tech features like a navigation system and Bluetooth are not" available.

Conclusion

The 2008 Buick LaCrosse offers generous standard equipment, but the options list looks dated.

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.
