2010 Buick LaCrosse CXL AWD
3 of 11

Price: $32,570

Overview: Redesigned, LaCrosse is better in every way than last year's version. The interior is roomier, it's more luxurious and the engines more powerful. A somewhat firmer suspension delivers sharp handling and a pliant ride.

Specifics: Only the midlevel CXL is available with AWD. It uses a 255-horsepower, 3-liter, V-6 to turn all the wheels. Acceleration is more than adequate with fuel mileage estimated at 16 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. Standard features include a tilt-telescoping steering wheel, leather seating with heated front seats, heated mirrors with integrated turn signals, full power accessories and 18-inch alloy wheels.
