TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Acura RLX leaves the bold ambition to other brands; it's a studied update that delivers smoother looks, quicker performance, and better fuel economy, but no more excitement. For those focused on safety, technology, and comfort—but not necessarily performance—the 2014 Cadillac XTS is everything a big luxury sedan should be. Everyday comfortable, yet track-ready, the 2014 Hyundai Genesis is one of the better performance-car picks if your budget is tight.
