The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
An excellent chassis and a nice interior mean the LaCrosse should be on your shopping list. At the low end, it represents an excellent value and should be on any full-size sedan buyer's shopping list. If it's cosseting luxury and a roomy interior you're after, the Lexus ES may be the car for you.
