The 2018 Buick LaCrosse tries its best to outclass the likes of the 2018 Lincoln MKZ, the 2018 Subaru WRX STI Sedan, and the 2018 Ford Fusion but falls short. Its 0-60 number is respectable for the class and only falls behind the leaders here by only 1.8 seconds.

However, after the initial demonstration of performance, the 2018 Buick LaCrosse falls behind the class. As far as quarter-mile numbers are concerned, it falls to last place. The 0.7 takes the stage here, with a lead of 2018 Dodge Charger seconds over the 2018 Buick LaCrosse.
