The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.7
6.4
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. Mercedes takes a second aim at an entry-level sedan with the A-Class, and this time hits closer to the mark. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class comes packed with tech wrapped in a sexy bod, but it’s somehow less spacious than last year’s model.
