The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
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 CLA is a small Mercedes done right, with enough of the brand's style and refinement mixed with a dash of youthfulness.
