The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
In any trim, the Buick LaCrosse is comfortable and well-appointed, but serious buyers should consider Premium versions. The 2016 Lincoln MKZ is missing some heritage, but this luxury sedan is no longer missing the sportier new direction that could do this brand some good.
