TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Buick LaCrosse is old-school luxury with a new-school hybrid battery bump. It's a quiet, comfortable sedan that doesn't make many mistakes. The 2019 Nissan Maxima is a break from the familiar mid-size four-door sedans. The 2019 Toyota Avalon takes a hard right into sporty territory to take on rivals from Nissan and Chrysler.
