TCC’s Bottom Line
The new 2010 Acura TSX offers more features than most entry-luxury sedans, and the V-6 cures its previous lack of power. The 2010 Audi S4 blasts its way into a performance war with BMW and Mercedes-Benz-and Lexus, Infiniti, and Cadillac-thanks to a big price cut and 333 supercharged horsepower. Subaru is finally taking its all-wheel-drive message into the mid-size sedan mainstream, and it’s done so almost flawlessly with the 2010 Legacy.
