Buick LaCrosse upgrades for 2014 with styling, advanced technology

(Continued)

For 2014, the LaCrosse continues to evolve as Buick's direction-setter. It looks elegant and understated with the old-school portholes and waterfall grille, but it adds a trendy touch this year with LED accent lights around the headlights — basically the hipster, Warby Parker eyeglasses of the car world.

The interior was also updated to be more contemporary. There's an eight-inch driver information display that looks spectacularly high-tech, a new center stack and new front seats with headrests that can be adjusted four ways.

Buick also adds an Ultra Luxury Interior package with a suede-like headliner and real ash wood trim.

Thankfully, it has a zesty, youthful driving feel, especially with the 3.6-liter V6, but remains quiet and comfortable to drive — even more so than some Cadillacs I've driven.

It's an interesting mix, trying to combine classic American comfort with modern, trendy technology and styling, but the LaCrosse makes it work beautifully.
