The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.8
7.8

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 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.
