The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
7.3
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 BMW 330i moves back toward the sweet spot in sport-sedan greatness, with M Sport and M editions still to come.
