TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Acura ILX is a well-rounded compact premium sedan for those who want features and comfort, but don't mind sacrificing performance. The 2015 Audi A3 and S3 put more pressure on "premium" small sedans, with real prestige in their badges and real potential in their spec sheets. The 2015 Buick Verano may not be much of a sports sedan, but it certainly delivers in the category of comfort.
