A mid-sized sedan that's as impressive on the inside as it is on the exterior, the 2018 Buick Lacrosse is a shining example of skilled luxury car design. The unique center console is an aesthetically-pleasing focal point that drives this unique model's look and feel, giving it a first impression that would be right at home on a first class flight. Providing a comfortable divide between driver and passenger, other options for the front seats provide supreme comfort by way of heating, ventilation, and even lumbar massage. While only the tip of the amenity iceberg in the 2018 Lacrosse, these thoughtful touches make this model year something to admire. With this level of attention to detail, you'll always arrive at your destination refreshed, whether it's a quick trip into Schertz or a longer journey outside of the San Antonio area.
Spacious and Stellar: The 2018 Buick Lacrosse
Buick's 2018 Lacrosse has room for five and is 198 inches long by 74 inches wide and 58 inches high. It also offers 15 cubic feet of cargo room in the trunk - ideal for toting a day's worth of shopping or bags for a relaxing weekend away. The rear seats fold down and open into the trunk, giving you additional space for transporting uniquely-shaped or long items securely. This cargo flexibility comes in handy for transporting craft or DIY home project components, giving you cargo options while still delivering the comfort of a sedan.
Great looks also come standard for this model year. From the sleek body lines to LED-accented tail lights, you'll look as stylish departing as you do on arrival, comfortably ensconced in the bucket driver's seat. If you'd like take in the scenery or have a chat with your passengers when you aren't making use of the satellite radio, bluetooth functionality, or amazing sound system, you'll love the QuietTuning™ technology as well. It uses acoustic-controlling materials and special speaker configurations to cancel out road noise, letting you concentrate on enjoying your ride.
Connected: Tech in the 2018 Buick Lacrosse
Like all of Buick's offerings for the 2018 model year lineup, the Lacrosse boasts all the connectivity needed to stay up to speed, both literally and figuratively. Under the hood, an eAssist 2.5L four-cylinder engine helps maximize fuel economy and performance with light electrification. This forward-thinking innovation helps you get the most out of every ride, from grocery shopping in New Braunfels to a day trip into Seguin. If you need to double-check your shopping list before you head in, the available OnStar 4G LTE hotspot can keep your favorite devices connected to the internet - up to seven of them, in fact. Even if you're bringing four of your friends along for the ride, everyone can check emails, make calls, listen to their music playlists, or catch up on social media on the go. The standard Buick Infotainment system gives both driver and passenger an 8 inch touchscreen with easily deciphered menus, enabling Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and hands-free calling.
When you need to power up as you connect your devices on the road, the 2018 Buick Lacrosse also offers several options: not only will you find two USB ports standard, there's also a pair of conveniently-placed 12-volt covered power ports, one in the front of the cabin and one in the rear. On select trim levels, there is also a 110-volt outlet placed for fast and easy access in the rear of the center console. In the 2018 Lacrosse, every seat is equally connected, positioned for easy charging, and ready to take on the road fully wired for errands and journeys alike.
Available Trims for the 2018 Buick Lacrosse
With four tiers of trims available in the 2018 Lacrosse, finding the Buick of your dreams is as simple as a test drive or two. No matter which trim level revs your proverbial engine, you'll have access to a robust list of features and accents that turn driving from a utility into a true pleasure. Each ascending tier upgrades or replaces components of the one preceding it, giving owners the chance to select their level of luxury:
• Lacrosse / 1SV
This base-level trim showcases Buick's finest innovations, from a built-in 4G LTE hotspot to the eAssist engine and QuietTuning™ build for a whisper-quet experience inside the cabin. There's plenty to love about the standards on this trim as well, such as the 8-way adjustable driver and front passenger seats for a customized ride. Standard rear park assist and a rear vision backup camera protects both your passengers and the environment around you from accidents.
Standard power windows and doors are joined by keyless entry and a remote-start fob that taps into the climate control system - the perfect match for the summer heat in Schertz. Not only does it ensure a comfortable environment from the moment you enter the vehicle, it keeps your downtime to a minimum - your Lacrosse is ready whenever you are. You'll also enjoy the standard Infotainment system, compatible with both Android and Apple mobile devices for music streaming and hands-free calls.
• Lacrosse Preferred
The Preferred trim adds a tilt-and-telescoping driving wheel column to customize your driving position. An available 9-speed automatic transmission offers you additional control over the standard 6-speed transmission. A 3-month trial of Sirius XM radio lets you find your favorite stations without ever worrying about being out of range, and a cargo net keeps your belongings safely stowed, no matter where your journey leads.
• Lacrosse Essence
The Essence trim is ideal for those that love a luxurious feel to their everyday driving experience, or those that want to make their commute something to look forward to. Soft, leather-appointed heated seats, dual-driver memory settings and an auto-dim rearview mirror make the miles a pleasure, day or night. This trim level is the perfect example of sleek, simple upgrades making all the difference.
• Lacrosse Premium
The Premium trim is for Buick drivers that love the look and feel of the Essence trim, but still want a little something extra. Massaging lumbar functions in both the driver and front passenger seat make long trips feel like a breeze, and shorter jaunts to Selma or New Braunfels an indulgence. The heads-up display keeps your eyes on the road, and a forward collision alert wraps you in an additional layer of safety wherever you travel.
• Lacrosse Avenir
The highest level of trim available in the 2018 Buick Lacrosse, the Avenir trim level adds stunning visual upgrades like a 3D upper and lower mesh grille
in the eye-catching black ice finish. Inside, interior upgrades and wood-look trim keep you cruising in style, and navigation comes standard in the Infotainment system, as well. A Bose® centerpoint surround sound system turns your favorite radio station or digital music collection into a private concert on the go.
Once you've picked out the perfect trim level for your Lacrosse, you'll have plenty of exterior color options to match your aesthetic tastes. Two base colors are available, as well as a virtual metallic rainbow of premium add-on hues:

• Light Neutral, Leatherette seat trim (1SV, Preferred, Essence, Premium)
• Brandy, Perforated Leather-appointed seat trim (Essence, Premium)
• Ebony, Perforated Leather-appointed seat trim (Essence, Premium, Avenir)
