2016 Buick LaCrosse Earns 5-Star Safety Rating from NHTSA

2016 Buick LaCrosse

When it comes to buying a vehicle, it’s important to look for one that is a good investment. If you’re looking for a quality car to get you around New England, the 2016 Buick LaCrosse is a very safe choice — and we mean that quite literally. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration just reviewed the vehicle, and it appears the new LaCrosse really knocked it out of the park!

The NHTSA awarded the 2016 LaCrosse a five-star overall safety rating, the highest score it gives to any vehicle. The LaCrosse earned five stars in front and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover test in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions. Last year’s LaCrosse also aced the NHTSA’s safety tests, so it should come as no surprise that Buick has done it again for 2016!

Headed to our Waterville Buick dealership later this summer, the 2016 Buick LaCrosse is the next evolution in luxury-car design, designed to build on its predecessor’s already posh cabin, opulent design and high customer-satisfaction scored (as rated by J.D. Power). It will come with a rearview camera, antilock brakes, traction control and eight air bags, while optional Driver Confidence packages add features like forward-collision alert, HID headlights, adaptive cruise control and much more. All of the details about its features and improvements are still forthcoming, but one thing is clear: its passenger-safety elements are beyond reproach.

It’s safe to say that, as far as the 2016 Buick LaCrosse is concerned, peace of mind is a standard feature. Stay tuned to find out when you can get behind the wheel of the new LaCrosse at Central Maine Chevrolet Buick!
