TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Acura TLX offers impressive performance, ample features, and smart value. The Buick LaCrosse is both supremely comfortable and excellent on gas, but we'd point you to the Premium versions if you're seriously considering one. The 2015 Hyundai Genesis is no longer just a great luxury-car value; it's a legitimate alternative to the heavyweights.
