The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
4.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is a compact luxury car with finesse. Its low price is justified in its small footprint and interior, but it still looks great. The 2019 Acura ILX delivers some luxury car goods, but we’d spend our money on a loaded-up Honda Civic instead.
