After teasers, spy shots and sightings, Buick officially took the wraps off of the 2017 LaCrosse here at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. Soak it in, because this is the new face of Buick.
But, we’re here to ask you: is this design hot, or not? Let’s look at it a bit closer.
If we were to give our honest first opinion, the front end of the 2017 Buick LaCrosse is an utter home run. The design team has absolutely knocked this design out of the park. The shift of the wheels 2.7-inches forward allows for proportions the current LaCrosse could only dream of.
A recessed, winged grille with a modern interpretation of the Buick waterfall styling cue has blended everything we loved about the Buick Avenir show car into a production package, and it’s seriously pleasing to look at.
Now, the rear is where the 2017 LaCrosse loses us a little. The sweepspear design lines buttress really well to create a strong shoulder at the rear quarter, flowing into the new winged LED taillights but, from a dead-on straight view, the rear is, well, boring.
Dare we say it, but the GM Authority staff has agreed it’s a look almost reminiscent of the not-so-missed Lucerne. We do quite like the integrated rear lip flowing from the sleek roofline, but the rear comes in as a disappointment after seeing the drop-dead gorgeous front fascia.
So, it’s time to hear from you. Are you digging the new look ushered in with 2017 Buick LaCrosse? Or were you looking for something more? Sound off in our poll, and talk to us in the comment section.
