An important step in the right direction for a brand that has lost its way.

The TSX Sport Wagon likely won’t be a huge seller, but it represents an important step in the right direction for a brand that has lost its way. Like the Acuras of old, this wagon is compact, efficient, and offers real value. The base price of $31,820 slots in nicely between compacts like the Audi A3 and more powerful offerings like BMW 328i Sports Wagon and A4 Avant (both of which start around $36,000).

Lost in Translation

The Audi R8 GT is a slightly more powerful, slightly lighter version of the R8 5.2 FSI coupe, which isn’t exactly short on power (525 hp) or overweight (3583 pounds) to begin with. Perhaps that’s why Audi only managed to bump peak horsepower to 560 and drop the curb weight 152 pounds for the GT.
