Buick LaCrosse Avenir 2018 | First Look | with Steve Hammes | TestDriveNow


It’s been about 3 years since Buick wowed
us with the gorgeous Avenir concept; a car that was expected to foretell a future flagship
sedan for GM’s premium division. Instead, it’s spawned a new sub-brand designating
the highest trim level available.  The 2018 Enclave Avenir was first and coming
early in 2018 is the LaCrosse Avenir. Distinguished by its three-dimensional grille
with chrome wings, Avenir script badging and exclusive 19” and 20” wheel designs, Buick
says this LaCrosse feeds their customers’ needs for subtle and tasteful details as part
of a timeless design. Features available on other LaCrosse models
come standard on the Avenir, including a 310-horsepower V-6, nine-speed automatic transmission, navigation
and Bose Centerpoint Surround Sound premium audio, as well as a panoramic moonroof. Additional available features include a Twin-Clutch
AWD system, Dynamic Drive Package featuring continuous variable real-time dampening control
and a suite of advanced safety features. Inside, Avenir-exclusive details include a
Chestnut interior color theme, embroidered first-row headrests and Avenir-scripted sill
plates. Buick says 9 out of 10 LaCrosse buyers choose
the top 2 trim levels and now this 2018 Avenir gives them an even greater choice.

    Chevy has problems moving the excellent Impala out of dealer lots, what makes Buick think they can sell this more luxurious clone at a higher price point?

    Not special enough to move the needle much. Lincoln Black Label models get substantial interior upgrades in terms of materials that at least on that front make them competitive with any first tier luxury brand, if maybe not yet interior design overall. Other than the embroidered headrests, I'm not seeing much here that's different from more pedestrian LaCrosse models at all, which aren't exactly flying off lots.

    So vs a loaded lacrosse you'll pay several thousand dollars more for… different color seats, embroidered headrests, a different grille, and larger rougher-riding wheels. Sounds like a steal!

    I understand the portholes pay homage to the Buicks of the past but they take away from an otherwise clean and elegant design. If anything, they look like the cheap stick ons from Pepboys. Buick is suppose to be attracting a new and younger generation of buyers so I don't get why they still incorporate this into their designs. GM is lost with the Buick brand. I think if they just kept the Opel badges on the new Regal for example and push the "German Engineered" mantra, they would probably sell more of them.

    This is a perfectly nice car from a perfectly nice brand, but seems like the non-stop bitching about it and them will continue unfettered. No matter what Buick tries with anything in their product line, even if it meets or exceeds the competition, it’s apparently never enough for people.

    Hard to understand why these and the top of the line Malibu's aren't more popular I love them.
