The Buick Lucerne is an attractive car, with clean lines suggestive of a fine European import while maintaining Buick traditions. Inside, the Lucerne is elegant, comfortable and easy. Underway, it’s smooth and quiet, but with precise steering and a chassis that handles winding roads with aplomb. We find the Lucerne to be a plush, highly competent full-size sedan at a compelling price. It’s Buick’s flagship sedan and we recommend it.
The Buick Lucerne is a full-size, front-wheel-drive, four-door luxury sedan, and it comes in several models. The Lucerne CX is tuned as a traditional Buick, with the Premium Ride Suspension. The Lucerne CXL comes with a firmer Ride and Handling Suspension, and is positioned to compete with the Toyota Avalon and Lexus ES 350. It’s a very enjoyable car to drive, with agile handling and plenty of performance. The CXL Special Edition is even quicker with its optional V8.
The Super is a new model with an old Buick name, dating back to 1940 and last seen in 1958. The V8-powered Super, which replaces last year’s CXS, delivers even more horsepower and features Magnetic Ride Control, an adaptive sports suspension developed for the Corvette.
Lucerne CXL upgrades with leather seats, all items from the Comfort and Convenience package, and 17-inch bright aluminum wheels. The suspension is tuned a little tighter and includes Airlift rear shocks for automatic level control.
