The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Acura TSX is far from the freshest sport sedan design, but it remains one of the most sensible and fun-to-drive. The 2009 Audi A4 has grown into a more useful luxury sedan, though it goes overboard with optional, programmable handling.
