“The eAssist drives just as well as the regular LaCrosse did. Smooth, quiet, and comfortable…”
"Consider that its main rivals include the likes of hybrids such as the Lexus HS 250h (35 mpg cty/34 mpg hwy) and Lincoln MKZ (41 mpg city/36 mpg hwy) neither of which hold a candle to the Buick’s interior.”
"Given the base price of just under $30,000, these technologies, and the quality of the car, make it a compelling competitor to other luxury cars.”

Buick’s innovative eAssist Technology improves your vehicle’s fuel efficiency by adding a compact electric motor and state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery to a 2.4L four-cylinder ECOTEC engine, improving fuel economy by an estimated 25%. The 2012 LaCrosse and Regal are the first vehicles available with eAssist Technology.
Buick’s eAssist Technology is about improving fuel efficiency through innovations like:
In fact, the 2012 LaCrosse gets better highway fuel economy than the Lexus HS and Infiniti M Hybrid.2
The 2012 Regal with eAssist Technology will offer better fuel economy than Acura TSX, Audi A4, and the Volkswagen CC.4
It’s the combination of simple ideas and innovative technology that helps Buick make 36 MPG HWY5 a reality on the road. That means you can enjoy more time driving and fewer stops at the pump.
The Power Flow Display in the center of your instrument cluster shows you what Buick eAssist Technology is doing to improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency as it happens. See when your battery is charging, when your engine is in start/stop mode, or when the electric motor is giving you a boost.
Get instant feedback on how fuel efficiently you are driving with the ECO Gauge located under the speedometer in your vehicle’s instrument cluster. You can achieve maximum fuel economy by keeping the needle in the middle of the ECO gauge. Accelerate or brake too aggressively, and the needle moves to the right or left. Keep the needle in the middle as much as possible, and eAssist technology will do the rest.
By reducing wind resistance and drag, we’ve improved aerodynamics and fuel economy. Electronically controlled front louvers in the lower grille close at higher speeds, helping air move around the vehicle and improving aerodynamics. Below the car, we’ve added underbody panels that cover drag-creating surfaces. You’ll notice fewer stops at the pump. Everyone else will notice the eye-catching precision design of your luxury sedan.
The 2012 Buick LaCrosse with eAssist Technology brings innovative fuel economy together with world-class luxury to create a rewarding driving experience.
Experience the power, performance, and sport-injected thrill of a fuel-efficient luxury sedan when you get behind the wheel of the 2012 Buick Regal with eAssist Technology.
