The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.2
7.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

Sized, outfitted, and powered like a mid-size luxury sedan but priced like a smaller one, the 2022 Acura TLX is a must-add to any shopping list. The 2022 VW Arteon is a good choice for those who want luxury trappings at a lower price, without compromising on cargo or passenger room.
