TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Acura ILX is still the most affordable car with a luxury badge, but it requires a few concessions. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan is the most affordable new Mercedes on sale. Its three-pointed star will be the attraction, but there’s plenty to stick around for after. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class packs sexy tech in a sexy bod, while it throws bargain pricing under the bus.
