The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
In any trim, the Buick LaCrosse is comfortable and well-appointed, but serious buyers should consider Premium versions. The 2016 Hyundai Genesis is a legitimate heavyweight contender, with excellent safety and features and good road manners in V-6 form.
