TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Acura RLX wraps a forward-thinking powertrain in a comfortable but cookie-cutter package. The 2019 Lexus ES deletes “sedate” from its vocabulary. The 2019 Lincoln MKZ is comfortable, quiet, and quick with the right engine, but lacks a refinement that other brands deliver.
