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 2020 Buick Regal is offered in a wide lineup, but you’ll need to shop closely for the best value here. The 2020 Mazda 6 gives drivers a last great shot to stay crossover-free.
