TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Acura RLX is an understated luxury full-sizer that puts emphasis on unique technical solutions instead of all-out style and flair. If you're looking for a car that offers comfort, technology, and safety as its greatest virtues, the 2015 Cadillac XTS does everything a big luxury sedan should. The 2015 Hyundai Genesis is no longer just a great luxury-car value; it's a legitimate alternative to the heavyweights.
