Default New car

Hi first time posting on this website. I recently finished school and am looking to replace my old 2004 volvo s60. I have narrowed it down to a few cars that im interested in. My budget is 20k and under. The only real criteria the car needs to meet is that it is relatively fast and fun to drive. Right now I am looking at a 2014 acura ilx with manual transmission. I have also looked at bmw 328i but newer models are out of my price range. Also just began looking at volvo s60 t5 which looks like a great car and much faster than I expected.

Would appreciate any comments and feedback on these cars as well as suggestions.

Thanks

Any reason you're looking at luxury cars?

Looked into an ATS with a 2.0T and 6 speed manual?

ilx is a luxary civic, and it does not come with si motor. i do not think it is any fun to drive even with 6 speed, i drove ilx auto, dull, and slow.
pretty much no new car that cost 20k is fun to drive. if i were you, i'd look at accord v6, 1-2 years old,

Just drove a 2013 volvo s60 t5 and really liked it. It was pretty quick with a 5 cylinder turbocharged engine. Felt really solid. I think I like it the best so far.
