The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Great on gas or long on comfort and refinement--the Buick LaCrosse can be either, though we'd steer you toward the premium editions. The Chrysler 300 is loaded with comfort and technology features, and it comes as either a near-luxury sedan, or an monstrously powerful muscle car.
