The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
A new grille and sporty A-Spec trim aren't enough to elevate the comfy and feature-laden 2018 Acura TLX. The 2018 Audi S4 balances perfectly performance with luxury in a package that's both practical and sharp. Hardly a recipe for excitement, but one that touches all the bases.
