The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Acura ILX isn't long on glamor, but it's a focused and comfortable compact sedan on the first rung of the luxury ladder. If you can live with its tiny rear seat, the 2017 Audi S3 is an absolute hoot to drive. The 2017 Buick Verano delivers quiet and comfort but the most appealing engine, the 2.0-liter turbo, doesn't return for the final run. Buyers should look for deals on this lame-duck car.
