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. The 2010 Volvo S40 and V50 are ideal for inner-city confines, and with both economical and sporty models on offer, most buyers should be able to find a package they’re comfortable with.
