The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Toyota Avalon takes a hard right into sporty territory to take on rivals from Nissan and Chrysler. 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.
