Notice how the TSX which is essentially just a rebadged European Accord places #1 on the list, and the North American Accord is no where to be seen? Granted the NA Accord isn't that expensive but fully loaded it's pretty close.

I don't think you can get a 330 for under 30K.

They summed up their choice of the TSX as the top with this statement:

The best synthesis of luxury, sport, and value out there right now.
I think it's a nice car, but I'm really surprised it has enough luxury and value to make up for it's deficit in the 'sport' part. I don't think it would mask its four cylinders and FWD that well.

gotta go drive one I guess

Murph, you should go drive one, I'm going to do so. Frankly, I think Honda does I4s better then V6s. The car is suppose to have very nice balance and the engine is said to feel very torquey for a Honda. It's also one of the lightest cars in the test I believe, which is always good.
