The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.4
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 2014 Hyundai Azera is a big, comfortable sedan that offers serious design appeal and a luxury-car ambiance.
