Buick’s Entire 2017 Lineup Gets Five-Star Safety Certification from NHTSA
Chances are pretty good that safety is one of the foremost concerns when purchasing a new vehicle, and with good reason. This might lead you to analyze vehicles based on their performance in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program; in this research, you would find that Buick is not only one of the few automakers who earned NHTSA’s five-star Overall Safety Score for every vehicle in its 2017 model year lineup, but that it has also achieved the feat of line-wide five-star scores now for three straight years.

The all-new 2017 Buick LaCrosse sedan was announced as having earned five stars from NHTSA on Friday, putting it on par with Buick’s new Envision and Cascada as well as the updated 2017 Encore, Enclave, Regal, and Verano in terms of safety. Buick has scored five-star safety scores for every vehicle in its lineup since 2015, at which point it was one of only two brands to achieve the feat.
“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 2017 LaCrosse earned five stars for performing above average in crashworthiness testing, and a litany of safety features including the all-new Front Pedestrian Braking system make it one of the most appealing sedans on the market not just visually and performance-wise, but also in terms of safety.
