The S4 by a mile. The TSX V6 is a good car but nowhere near the same league (of course, it's cheaper too...but it's the same as a 328i and it doesn't have what it takes to beat that out IMO). The MKS is a great looking car that unfortunately sucks the big one while the Lexus is a fucking joke.

BTW moe, what about the facelifted 3-series? It's new for 2010.

Not according to the poll results? Looks like you voted for the Lincoln...


S4 hands down for me.

Anyone who votes for the Lexus should be tarred, feathered, and drawn, and then mounted anally on an 8-inch wide pole made of depleted uranium. Then they should be killed.

S4 for being the least boring car of the lot.

The S4 also gets 18/27 MPG with the 6-speed and 18/28 with the S-tronic, not 18/21.

Audi, they are beautifully built, engineered and styled. Audi makes the best looking range of four door cars on the planet right now, hands down.

I have never felt like Acuras really do enough to be taken seriously as luxury cars, I have always viewed them as more luxurious Hondas.

Lincoln has me, stylistically speaking, until you get to the back, where it looks like they just kinda gave up.

The Lexus is ugly and pointless.

Really? InsideLine's new model guide failed to point that out. I'd love to add it, any excuse not to vote for an Audi tongue.gif

EDIT: I'm thinking I should just make it one of those models we forgot for 2010, and throw it into DSCOTY 2011. I'd have to redo the coupes, convertibles, compact execs, and the versatility segments. Which sounds like a pain in the ass right now.
