The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.5
7.0
6.7

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2019 Acura TLX is a sharp luxury mid-size sedan, but lacks the performance pedigree and options that others may offer. The 2019 Audi A4 is hiding in plain sight as one of the automaker’s most complete and well-rounded cars. The 2019 Lincoln MKZ is comfortable, quiet, and quick with the right engine, but lacks a refinement that other brands deliver.
