Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Genesis G70 is an all-new compact luxury sport sedan with a fun-to-drive character for a bargain price. Genesis is a new face in the luxury car game, but we've been largely impressed with the brand's other vehicles for offering a lot of value for money. The G70 is no exception, with a capable 2.0T entry-level trim and exciting 3.3T model.

Pros
Sporty, fun-to-drive character
Some excellent upscale design touches
Excellent warranty coverage
Lots of features and tech for the price

Cons
Manual transmission isn't as engaging as it could be
Some cabin materials are subpar for the class
Infotainment screen out of a Hyundai
Cramped back seat

The 2019 Genesis G70 is a performance bargain that improves upon the dynamics of ts Kia Stinger cousin but lacks its space.

Pros
Potent V-6
Optional 6-speed manual
Exceptional on-road dynamics
Exceptional warranty
Aggressive looks...

Cons
...but are they over the top?
Smaller than Kia Stinger cousin
Firm ride
Not particularly fuel-efficient

The G70 is the first real sports sedan from Hyundai's luxury Genesis brand, and it's quite good for a first attempt. Using a rear-wheel-drive setup shared with the Kia Stinger, the G70 is aimed squarely at the legendary BMW 3-series.

Pros
Looks like a sports sedan and acts like one, too;
power flows freely;
interior design executed right;
settles down when asked.

Cons
Unnecessary brake-based handling “aid,” short on rear-seat legroom.

The 2020 Acura TLX ranked #9 in Luxury Midsize Cars. Currently the Acura TLX has a score of 7.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 46 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lowest starting price in the class
Good fuel economy estimates
Comfortable ride
Lots of standard features

Cons
Some unimpressive cabin materials
Snooze-worthy base engine
Tight rear seat
Less athletic than rivals

The 2020 Acura TLX comes with front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed automated manual, 9-speed shiftable automatic.No significant changes this year.

Pros
Interior is quiet and trimmed with high-quality materials
Several desirable driver safety aids come standard
Back seat comfortably accommodates adults

Cons
Competent but bland driving character
No real zest or gusto
Four-cylinder engine is underpowered

The TLX receives very few change for 2020, with paint new paint colors joining the palette. These include Canyon Bronze metallic, Majestic Black Pearl, Performance Red Pearl, and Apex Blue Pearl, which is exclusive to the A-Spec versions The biggest news is an ultra-limited-edition model called the TLX PMC Edition. Acura says it will only make 360 examples of this special TLX, which costs $50,945. While these sedans are hand-built in the same factory as the Acura NSX supercar, they have the same powertrain and mostly the same features as the TLX A-Spec.

Pros
Comfortable ride, top-notch seat comfort, choice standard features.

Cons
Infotainment looks outdated, interior fails to be truly luxurious, we need more power, captain!
