The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Buick LaCrosse is both supremely comfortable and excellent on gas, but we'd point you to the Premium versions if you're seriously considering one. The 2015 Chrysler 300 adds more style, features, and efficiency to an already confident, capable large family sedan.
