TCC’s Bottom Line
Athletic and well-appointed, the 2020 Acura TLX is an appealing mid-size luxury sedan, although the competition is fierce. The 2019 Audi A4 is hiding in plain sight as one of the automaker’s most complete and well-rounded cars. The 2020 MKZ can’t match Lincoln’s SUV glamour, but they can’t match its hybrid gas mileage.
