The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Acura TLX is light on luxury feel, but it has great interior space, lots of technology, and in its base version, supremely enjoyable performance and handling. In any trim, the Buick LaCrosse is comfortable and well-appointed, but serious buyers should consider Premium versions.
