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 Buick Verano may not be much of a sports sedan, but it certainly delivers in the category of comfort. The 2015 CLA is a small Mercedes done right, with enough of the brand's style and refinement mixed with a dash of youthfulness.
