“Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes are standard”

The 2010 Buick LaCrosse arrives on dealer lots in 2009 with a full complement of safety features. As Buick aims to bring the average age of its buyers down into the 40-50-year-old range it will likely promote its safety features even heavier, as this demographic tends to still have kids around the house—usually of driving age.

Like most 2010 models, the 2010 Buick LaCrosse has not yet been crash tested by either the NHTSA or the IIHS, but Buick’s history in crash tests is comforting. The outgoing 2009 LaCrosse, for example, earned perfect five star front impact ratings, although it did suffer from a mediocre three star driver side impact rating. Stay tuned to TheCarConnection.com for the latest updates on the 2010 Buick LaCrosse as it undergoes the full battery of crash tests at both agencies.

Crash-test ratings may not be available yet for the latest Buick sedan, but the safety features list has been heavily pushed by Buick. As Cars.com points out, “four-wheel-disc antilock brakes are standard” on the 2010 Buick LaCrosse, and other standard features include “an electronic stability system and six airbags.” Unlike some competing models, the 2010 Buick LaCrosse doesn’t offer all of its safety equipment as standard fare; backseat side airbags are an optional feature, and when added they bring the total number of airbags inside the big Buick to eight.

The 2010 Buick LaCrosse doesn’t suffer from any major deficiencies in terms of sightlines. Consumer Guide reviewers write that “visibility is generally good in all directions” from the LaCrosse’s driver seat. For those who are particularly concerned about visibility, Cars.com notes that “a blind-spot warning system and adaptive cornering headlights, which automatically swivel a few degrees to illuminate upcoming curves when you turn the steering wheel, are optional.”

Conclusion

Though the 2010 Buick LaCrosse hasn’t yet undergone official crash-testing, the wide range of standard airbags and safety equipment—plus optional rear-passenger thorax airbags—make for an impressive package.

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.
