Acura ILX

CR claimed the ILX's stiff suspension mixes oddly with its otherwise "mundane" handling, and there's a whole lot of road noise to contend with.

According to CR, the cabin is cramped, the ride is harsh and the pricing can get a little crazy.

Overall, the 2017 Trax should hit all the right spots for urban buyers that want something a bit more capacious than a subcompact sedan.
