The recent upgrades in technology have allowed luxury vehicles to truly start living up to their name. In days past luxury used to mean leather seats and power windows. While today’s cars have those as well they have also ushered in a new abundance of features that make your vehicle sometimes more comfortable than your home.

The main reason is that these cars are made to be driven and people love doing it. Handling is impressive for fans of wide open roads as well as responsive, ergonomic steering. The car itself seems to anticipate the needs of the driver and deliver as needed.
The BMW 328i is a comparable model to the 2014 Acura TSX but upon closer review it’s easy to see a few major differences that slide the scales in favor of Acura. This is a unique vehicle designed with attention to the smallest detail. It is larger than a compact providing the extra room appreciated by luxury car owners, but it is smaller than a midsize helping to retain that athletic performance and feel Acura owners are accustomed to. The price tag makes a huge difference in today’s market and Acura wins again with a $30,635 base price that blows away comparable vehicles in its class.
