While the Acura TSX doesn't land squarely into one class of luxury sedan, we think that's part of its charm.
If you're cross-shopping it against the BMW 3-Series or Audi A4, you'll find that German models have a heavier, more substantial feel and significantly more options available, but they're also considerably more expensive.
The 320i, the most affordable version of the 3-Series, earns similar fuel economy to the TSX with its 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.
Other alternatives include the Acura ILX, which is the brand's smallest car.
It lacks the TSX's fun-to-drive personality, but offers a considerably more efficient hybrid model.
On the other hand, there's the Subaru Legacy and Buick Regal.
The Legacy is a better all-weather car with its standard all-wheel-drive, but its interior doesn't quite land in the luxury category.
The Regal drives more like a German car, but it's similar in size and packaging to the TSX.
