The Good Car Guy has some harsh criticism for only two members of the compact luxury car field in Canada. The Lexus HS250h was berated in The Bad 8 v3.0, so there’s no need to do so here. The Acura CSX buyer should really be more interested in a Honda Civic Si sedan, but unfortunately, the image-concscious quadrant of their brain makes necessary a luxury-badged car. As for the other four cars, there’s a little bit of bad but plenty of good.
The Volvo C30 is gorgeous. The Germans? B-Class Benz hatchbacks are really a very nice family vehicle. The Audi A3 is a blast to drive. And the BMW 1-Series is what some of us wish the 3-Series still was. Judging by the sales figures of all six vehicles, few people really care at all about any of them.
