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).
