2008 Acura TSX. Balance is also central to making a successful entry-level luxury sedan, or any car for that matter.

But achieving the zen of balance in the automotive world is as challenging as it is in martial arts. It is a rare occasion to drive a car so balanced in everything it does that you must nitpick to find any shortcomings. The Acura TSX is exactly this kind of machine.
