Weekly Test-Drive: 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS, no longer your daddy’s car

2010 Buick LaCroose (Weekly Test-Drive)

After we closed shop last night here at egmCarTech, we picked up a 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS for a week long test-drive. While we’ve previously seen the new 2010 LaCrosse at the auto shows across the United States, it was a whole different feeling getting one delivered and knowing you’ll drive it around for a whole week… a good feeling.

First Impressions: As soon as the 2010 Buick LaCrosse pulled up we were taken aback by how well-designed the new GM sedan is when compared to its rivals (the Acura TL, Toyota Avalon, Lincoln MKZ and the Lexus ES). Take a seat inside the car (and we kid you not) and you realize that GM has worked really hard in improving overall interior design and quality. The leather seating, white stitching and the overall modern look and feel steps away from the “is that your daddy’s car” perspective.

Our 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS sedan is powered by a 3.6L direct injection V6 that produces 280-hp and 259 lb-ft of torque. The MSRP of the 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS starts at $33,105, but our test-vehicle carries a final price tag of $33,960 with the optional $195 Carbon Black Metallic exterior and the $750 destination charge. For those of you not looking to spend over $30,000 on a new mid-size sedan, the 2010 LaCrosse starts at $27,085 with a 255-hp 3.0L DOHC V6, premium cloth seats and 17-inch wheels (our model has 18-inch wheels).

As always, stay in touch as we review the car and ask us all the questions you want about the 2010 Buick Lacrosse. If you want a quicker response send us a Tweet and we”ll reply ASAP. This is your chance to learn everything you want about the LaCrosse if you’re in the market to buy one.
