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. The 2016 Toyota Avalon gets some minor fillips as it vies again for our top rating among large sedans.
