Buick continues to improve its entire lineup of vehicles, and regardless of which of the six models you choose, every one has earned top scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The Buick brand has made safety a priority for some time now, so the 5 Star Overall ratings throughout the entire lineup shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise. Since every one of Buick’s models earned top ratings for the 2015 model line, every model tested since then—most recently the 2017 LaCrosse—has achieved the 5 Star Overall score. That’s three consecutive years of safety excellence.
“We know safety is top of mind for buyers when shopping for new vehicles, and the recent ratings by NHTSA showcase our brand’s dedication to providing our customers with safe, reliable transportation,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick Sales, Service and Marketing. “We’ve launched four new vehicles in 2016 and we are extremely proud to continue to offer a lineup of award-winning vehicles that have NHTSA five-star Overall Vehicle Score ratings across the board.”
The Cascada convertible, one of four all-new Buick models in 2016, was the first top down drop top vehicle to earn the 5 Star Overall score. The reimagined 2017 LaCrosse, the flagship of the brand, is the first Buick to offer Front Pedestrian Braking. Other standout features include the Safety Alert Seat that vibrates on either side to warn you of any potential threats and a front-center air bag that provides additional protection in the event of a collision.
Other impressive safety features found on 2017 Buick models include Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator, Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Front Pedestrian Protection, Full Speed Range Adaptive Cruise Control and Front Automatic Braking. All Buick models also boast Strong body shells, StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control, a slew of airbags and a full suite of OnStar telematics services.
From the 2017 Regal and LaCrosse sedans, to the Cascada convertible and Encore, Envision and Enclave crossovers, you’re sure to find a Buick that is as unique as you are. Stop by today to find out more and be sure to save some time for a test drive.
