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 Mazda 6 is a breakout among mid-sizers that can lack flair and fun. The 2020 Volkswagen Arteon is a spacious, stylish choice, though its price is high.
