When a high-res, high-contrast screen can be found on a $200 base Garmin or TomTom navigation system, a pixelated display that looks like a refugee from a ’70s calculator is inexcusable in any car with upmarket aspirations.

A Harman Kardon audio system makes music sound beautiful
The available navigation system absorbs audio functions...some functions are not as intuitive as they should be.
The 2013 Buick LaCrosse is a well-equipped sedan in any of its guises, but in its upper Premium or Touring trims the LaCrosse feels like a true luxury car. Top-of-the-line LaCrosses can feel like entry-level Cadillacs, with an upgraded instrument panel, hard-drive navigation, and Harman Kardon sound.
For 2013, Buick has added the IntelliLink touch-screen interface as a standard feature for all LaCross models. IntelliLink allows connectivity with smartphones for hands-free or streaming audio functions, as well as access to apps for Pandora or Stitcher audio. All LaCrosses feature hands-free Bluetooth phone connectivity, remote start, eight-way adjustable seating, and dual-zone climate control.
An available Heads-up Display (HUD), and a 40-gigabyte hard-drive-based navigation are among the LaCrosse's many other upgrades, as are a DVD rear entertainment system and a power sunroof. New for 2013, you can get both IntelliLink and the full-featured navigation system together.
With a Cadillac feature set but a price that's (in base form) not far from Chevy, the 2013 Buick LaCrosse is an impressive value.
