The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
In any trim, the Buick LaCrosse is comfortable and well-appointed, but serious buyers should consider Premium versions. For those who don't want or need the Genesis' price tag, the 2016 Hyundai Azera satisfies the near-luxury need for style and features.
