The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
With exception to those green-car enthusiasts out there, we think the 2014 Acura TSX strikes a solid compromise for shoppers interested in a practical, sporty, premium compact sedan. The 2014 Audi A4 and S4 are trim, tech-savvy alternatives to the usual German luxury sedans, and to one stunningly good American one.
