TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Buick LaCrosse is a proper flagship, a refined and comfortable sedan with only a few quirks. The 2018 Chevrolet Impala adds better base equipment this year for good value among full-sizers. Classic lines? Big V-8 power? Rear-wheel drive? The 2018 Chrysler 300 still has us by the feels.
