TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Hyundai Azera is still a good value, but now it offers real design appeal, confident performance, and a true luxury-car ambiance. The 2013 Buick LaCrosse hits the mark for comfort, sophistication, and refinement in a large sedan—and its 36-mpg rating is icing on the cake.
