The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Buick LaCrosse is not just a good-looking vehicle; it handles and rides well, and when compared to its main rivals, it’s a value leader as well. The 2011 Infiniti M pairs beauty with a beastly V-8 engine—and at last, Infiniti makes its marque in a class full of winners.
