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 Coupe appeals to a more limited group than it used to; but it straddles the line between budget sports car and refined touring coupe in all the right ways.
