Features & Safety

The LaCrosse has yet to be crash-tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Standard safety features include antilock brakes, an electronic stability system and six airbags. Seat-mounted backseat side airbags are optional, raising the airbag total to eight. A blind-spot warning system and adaptive cornering headlights, which automatically swivel a few degrees to illuminate upcoming curves when you turn the steering wheel, are optional.

The V-6-powered LaCrosse CX starts at $27,085, though the introduction of a four-cylinder CX later this year will likely lower that figure. Standard features include a power driver's seat, single-zone automatic climate control and a CD stereo with an MP3 jack and steering-wheel audio controls. CXL models ($29,645) add leather upholstery, alloy wheels, a power passenger seat, dual-zone climate control and heated front seats; all-wheel drive runs an extra $2,175. The CXS ($33,015) adds the larger V-6, rear parking assist, Harman Kardon audio and a slew of other luxury features. Most of them are optional on the CXL.

Additional options include a panoramic moonroof, a navigation system with a backup camera, xenon headlights and a backseat DVD system with a screen behind each front-seat head restraint. Load up the LaCrosse, and the sticker ends up around $41,000.
