TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Acura TLX plants its flag among premium mid-size sedans with a racy design, strong turbocharged engines, and improved dynamics. The 2022 Cadillac CT5 comes in a variety of sporty flavors, now topped by the most-powerful Cadillac ever, the CT5-V Blackwing. The 2022 Lexus ES splits the difference between the stately LS and sprightly IS in the Lexus sedan family.
