The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Acura ILX delivers some luxury car goods, but we’d spend our money on a loaded-up Honda Civic instead. The 2019 2-Series coupe or convertible is proof that the formula BMW helped create still works. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is a compact luxury car with finesse. Its low price is justified in its small footprint and interior, but it still looks great.
