Among a number of tweaks to the Buick LaCrosse for the 2014 model year, the full-size sedan received new seats. While we weren’t able to fit three child-safety seats across its backseat, we did appreciate its five Latch anchors. While most cars have two sets of anchors in the outboard seats to meet a federal mandate, the LaCrosse has an extra anchor in the middle that allows parents to use Latch anchors to install a car seat in the middle seating position.
How many car seats fit in the second row? Two
What We Like
- The five anchors are easy to use because the seat cushions that surround them move easily out of the way.
- Both the rear-facing infant and convertible seats fit easily in the backseat, with no need to move the front passenger seat forward.
- The forward-facing convertible also fit well despite the fixed head restraint pushing the seat forward on the bottom cushion.
What We Don’t
- The high-back booster seat fit well in the LaCrosse, but we had to mark this seat down because of the LaCrosse’s floppy seat belt buckles, which can fall behind the booster, making it difficult for younger kids to use independently.
