I'm looking to purchase a new entry-level luxury sports sedan within the next month or two. At around $30K, I've found the main competitors to be the Acura TSX, Audi A4, Lexus IS250, BMW 328i, Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT, Saab 9-3, and Volvo S40. I will only be purchasing one with a manual transmission. To be honest, I'm most interested in the TSX due to the extensive list of features which come standard on it. Many of the same features are options on the others which would bump up their price significantly. The TSX is also the only car I've test driven as of now, which I was thoroughly pleased with, especially once the needle went past 6K RPMs. The shifter was smooth, but precise and the engine wasn't as gutless in the lower RPMs as I had been led to believe by many reviews (expert and user). Though this may be because I've never owned a very powerful car (1993 Toyota Celica GT-S for 6-7 years before it was totaled by a drunk driver last year, sister's 2002 VW Jetta 1.8T since then). And let's not forget the interior, which is extremely nice and ergonomic. It may sound like I've already reached my decision, but I like to be thorough and will be test driving the competitors to make sure I'm not missing something. I've researched all of these cars, but was hoping you guys could provide your feedback on any of them (especially if you own) to provide another perspective. Thanks!
