Safety

Since our previous review, the LaCrosse has been crash-tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and it performed very well. It's a Top Safety Pick because it scored Good, the top rating, in front, side and rear crash tests, as well as in the roof-strength test, which measures rollover protection. It also has a standard electronic stability system, as required.

Other standard safety features include front and side curtain airbags. Side-impact torso bags are standard for the front seats and optional for the rear. Antilock brakes are also included.
