2010 Buick Lacrosse vs. Its Competition

2010 Buick LaCrosse
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The 2010 Buick LaCrosse sits in a no-man’s land of pricing, performance, and luxury specification, straddling the gap between high-end mainstream and entry-level luxury.

Like the LaCrosse, the Lexus ES offers ample room and a comfortable ride, but lacks some of the higher technology elements.

The Infiniti M sits a bit further up-market than the LaCrosse, but offers similar performance and equipment in the V-6 models.

Acura’s TL is another mid-luxury fence-sitter, offering many of the same advantages and disadvantages of the LaCrosse, but with a much younger, more abrasive styling direction.

The Hyundai Genesis, aside from being the 2009 North American Car of the Year, offers tremendous value and a similar size and feature list to the new LaCrosse.

Quick Specs
The 2010 Buick LaCrosse is not just a good-looking vehicle; it handles and rides well, and when compared to its main rivals, it’s a value leader as well.
The 2011 Infiniti M pairs beauty with a beastly V-8 engine—and at last, Infiniti makes its marque in a class full of winners.
Boldly styled and laden with high-tech features, the 2010 Acura TL is a solid value, though enthusiasts might find its overall ability lacking.
The 2010 Hyundai Genesis is a power play for luxury credibility-and it's just about the equal of mid-size luxury rivals from Lexus and Infiniti.
