For car shoppers in San Antonio who can no longer wait for the release of the Buick Avenir concept, the luxury car brand’s recent unveiling of the 2017 Buick LaCrosse definitely whets the appetite for a sportier, sleeker and even more beautiful Buick.
The 2017 Buick LaCrosse bares a striking similarity to the sophisticated, award-winning design of the Avenir. The new LaCrosse removes its rounded exterior and replaces it with a windswept profile that features a soft, swooping shoulder line for an enhanced and dramatic appearance. Obvious changes made to the frontend of the LaCrosse include a chiseled hood, wing-shaped high-intensity discharge headlamps and an Avenir-inspired grille that displays Buick’s revamped triple shield insignia. Changes made to the rear include the removal of the chrome bar that connects the rear taillamps on its predecessor.
The cabin of the 2017 Buick LaCrosse is almost more breathtaking and noteworthy than its revitalized exterior. The interior features a low and away infotainment center with a frameless eight-inch color touch screen, deep colors mated to an intricate wood design and supple leather seats. Those plush front seats also feature a massage and heating function that immediately ensconces front passengers in an extreme level of luxury and comfort.
New for the LaCrosse is a 3.6-liter V6 engine with cylinder deactivation that improves power and fuel efficiency. The V6 is paired to an all-new five-link rear suspension that provides an undeniably improved driving experience in San Antonio. The rear suspension optimizes handling and acceleration that holistically come together for uncompromised and quiet trips around the city.
The 2017 Buick LaCrosse will be available in summer 2016.
