Editors at TheCarConnection.com have studied the 2009 Buick LaCrosse and noted that the standard equipment is good—borderline lavish—and optional features make the car even better.
The three trim levels for the LaCross are CX, CXL, and Super, which was noted by Consumer Guide. Standard equipment across all trim levels include satellite radio, remote start, and dual-zone climate control, which was reported by Cars.com. Consumer Guide went further adding OnStar telematic-based assistance with one year of service, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with mounted audio controls, cruise control, cloth upholstery, power adjustable driver's seat, keyless entry, AM/FM/CD audio system, automatic headlights, and 16-inch wheels with wheel covers.
Moving up to the CXL trim gives buyers leather seats, woodgrain trim, heated front seats, alloy wheels, and power lumbar controls for the driver, according to Edmunds. Super trim tops the range and offers all of the above, including 18-inch wheels, V-8 power, an upgraded suspension and brakes, and leather seats with woven inserts, according to Popular Mechanic.
Kelley Blue Book notes the options may vary by trim and include a power adjustable passenger seat, spoiler, stability control, and a power sunroof. Consumer Guide noted a few more including rear obstacle detection, heated power mirrors, automatic adjustable rearview mirror, and power adjustable passenger seat. Cars.com noted that the Super trim gets its own unique gauges and center stack.
Navigation, which is a popular option for many sedans in this category, isn't offered in the LaCrosse.
