The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Acura ILX has a sportier focus than other entry-luxury sedans, without sacrificing comfort and refinement. The 2016 Audi A3 models offer a variety of body styles, powertrains, and options to battle whatever the small luxury segment has to offer.
