TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Acura TLX offers impressive performance, ample features, and smart value. The 2015 Audi A4 and S4 sedans are tech-laden, trim, handsome alternatives to the other expected German cars, as well as one very good American one. The 2015 Infiniti Q40 is, literally, last year's model. Alongside the new Q50 it offers a compelling, more vivid driving experience -- albeit with far less refinement.
