The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Acura TLX is a near-luxury competitor in a luxury field crowded with very good (and very pricey) cars with European badges on them. The 2017 Buick Regal remains one of GM's most handsome, composed sedans--just skip the base engine, and make sure rear-seat passengers are small.
