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 Azera is the big, stylish, luxurious Hyundai for folks who don't want the Genesis's bulk or price tag. The 2015 Toyota Avalon is no longer just for retirees, although they'll appreciate the attractive design, available fuel-sipping Hybrid, and rejuvenated driving dynamics as much as anyone.
