2012 Buick Lacrosse eAssist

The new Hybrid model replaces the base 4 cylinder that was available until 2011.
The V6 remains, but has more power for 2012. Now rated at 303hp.

Both models will be offered at the same price. Pretty much what Lincoln is doing with the MKZ Hybrid.

Both Lacrosse models start at $ 29 960. Plus destination.
The big advantage of the hybrid is of course gas mileage, which is rated at 25/37. Really good for a car this size.

I really like the various models of the Lacrosse I've driven so far.
But I thought the regular base 2.4 Liter was underpowered. Which should be fixed with the hybrid.

A really good sedan is getting even better.

I agree completely.

This is one of the most beautiful sedans available today at any price. I think GM hit a homerun with it. Other than the too-small wheels, the hybrid is a great addition. I would like, however, to see the quality of the interior improved a bit. I love most of it, but any car with fake woodgrain is a non-starter for me, so I hope they correct that. Whenever I see one of these in traffic, I do a double take. It's a very stately good looking car!

I like the LaCrosse a lot but what the heck is up with those massive trunk hinges??? They take up so much room!!! I wish they'd use those folding struts.
