Poised to compete with segment heavy hitters, the Acura TLX doesn't have what it takes to play in the big leagues. While it is a good overall performer, the TLX lacks the engaging performance and panache found in other upscale sedans. Measured against its European and Japanese rivals, the TLX's handling falls short and its ride isn't as comfortable.
