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 BMW 330i moves back toward the sweet spot in sport-sedan greatness, with M Sport and M editions still to come. Pricey and on the slighter side of mid-size, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class drops a beautiful cockpit, huge dollops of safety, and effortless AMG brilliance into the sport-sedan mix.
