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. The 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe appeals to a more limited group than it used to; but it straddles the line between budget sports car and refined touring coupe in all the right ways.
