Acura's entry-level compact sedan got a slight makeover for 2016, but don't expect a bargain luxury sedan. The sole powertrain is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and eight-speed automated-manual transmission. Acura failed to address the stiff, jumpy ride, and handling is more mundane than sporty, but ultimately secure. Road noise is incessant and the new transmission makes the car hesitate off the line. Once underway, the gearbox feels reluctant to downshift, lugging the engine when you need power. The lack of lumbar support for the driver's seat is another knock, the infotainment system is not very intuitive, and the car's low owner satisfaction score is noteworthy. Available safety features include road-departure and forward-collision mitigation systems, and lane-keep assist.
