TCC’s Bottom Line
Comfortable and roomy with classic styling, the 2010 Buick Lucerne is still a valid choice as a premium sedan. The 2010 Hyundai Azera appeals to sedan shoppers on a budget who value comfort and interior space above all else. The 2010 Toyota Avalon offers a Lexus-caliber interior experience, at a Toyota price.
