The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Great on gas or long on comfort and refinement--the Buick LaCrosse can be either, though we'd steer you toward the premium editions. It took a while to get here, but the 2014 Chevy Impala fast-forwards over the past with fine handling and even better styling.
