SAFETY | 10 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

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

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

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.

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

Those seeking one of the safest cars on the market have no reason to dismiss the 2013 Buick LaCrosse; it earns some of the best ratings from both major U.S. safety agencies, and in addition to a solid roster of standard safety features it offers an extensive list of active-safety items that might just help you avoid an accident.

The federal government has given the LaCrosse a rating of five stars overall, and it's achieved 'good' ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in all categories--making it last year again a Top Safety Pick. Good outward visibility also makes the LaCrosse a great pick with respect to safety.

But it goes beyond that. Check some option boxes and you can get a number of safety-tech features that until recently have been limited to top European sport sedans, mostly. Blind-spot warning system, adaptive cornering headlamps, and rear side thorax bags are all available, as is a head-up display (HUD).


It doesn't get any better than this; the 2013 LaCrosse is a standout for safety--even against 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.
