TCC’s Bottom Line
If the bold exterior is to your liking, the 2011 Acura TL is a solid luxury value—and the SH-AWD has true sport-sedan chops. The 2011 Buick LaCrosse hits new levels of style, sophistication, and driving engagement without alienating the brand's comfort-oriented customer base. For road or track, the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is one of the best performance values on the market.
