TCC’s Bottom Line
With exception to those green-car enthusiasts out there, we think the 2014 Acura TSX strikes a solid compromise for shoppers interested in a practical, sporty, premium compact sedan. The 2015 BMW 3-Series lineup is a sport sedan at heart, but with Sports Wagon and Gran Turismo (hatchback) models, it's a lot more than that. The 2015 Volvo V60 puts driving fun over cargo capacity--that's the XC60 crossover's job.
