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. The 2016 Buick Verano delivers heavily on comfort and quiet, even if it's not much of a sport sedan.
