With the addition of the Encore’s 5-Star safety rating, the entire 2015 Buick lineup has now received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score, including the Enclave, LaCrosse, Regal, and Verano.

“Consumers are consistently surprised to discover Encore provides the characteristics they expect in our larger offerings – style, sophistication, connectivity and comfort,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick, in a statement. “NHTSA’s evaluation affirms Encore lives up to Buick’s safety reputation.”

Making the Encore so strong is its high- and ultra-high strength steel body structure. It also comes equipped with 10 standard air bags to keep all passengers safe. Available safety features include rear cross traffic alert, side blind zone alert, front- and rear-park assist, forward collision alert, and lane departure warning.

The 2014 Buick LaCrosse has earned an overall five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This rating includes both the front- and all-wheel-drive versions. The LaCrosse earned five-star ratings for both front and side-impact crashes and a four-star rating in the rollover tests, which gave it an overall five-star rating.

Buick incorporated a wide range of safety features into the LaCrosse. In addition to a strong frame, these include Forward Collision Alert technology and Adaptive Cruise Control. Forward Collision Alert uses both audio and visual warnings to alert you when you are too close to the car in front of you.

Also keeping you safe are the available Side Blind Zone Alert and Change Alert. These technologies use radar to let you know when a car is in your blind spot so you don’t change lanes and cause an accident. An available rear camera uses Rear Cross Traffic Alert to help you park with confidence.
