The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
5.6
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 sleek lines of the 2017 Volkswagen CC compromise its four-door sedan usability, making it a specialty choice in the segment.
