MSN Autos Gives Strong Endorsement for HUD in 2014 Buick LaCrosse

Douglas Newcomb of MSN Autos drove a 2014 Buick LaCrosse which was equipped with a heads-up display system.

In a Car Tech Spotlight, Newcomb explained the usefulness of this handy information display.

The reviewer talked about the systems convenience, and visibility, coming to the conclusion that it is an effective way to reduce collisions and increase safety.

2014 Buick LaCrosse’s HUD

The heads-up display, or HUD, system in the 2014 Buick LaCrosse works by projecting information directly onto the windshield.

Like a cinema projector, the system sends lighting to the dashboard which is reflected back to the driver.

He was also impressed with the HUD’s ability to inform the driver about potential accidents and hazards.

The writer talked about the cruise control information and adaptive cruise control settings, commenting that the system functioned well and displayed a gas setting for the adaptive cruise control.

Newcomb seemed the most impressed with the driver warnings for lane departure and the forward collision alerts system.

While the information shown in the windshield is repeated on the instrument panel below, having the warnings displayed directly on the windshield, where the driver is looking, helps keep the driver fully engaged and attentive.

Newcomb also commented on the visibility of the system, saying that the “warning stands out clearly even in daylight”.
