2012 Acura TSX
2012 Acura TSX
The TSX may be the smallest, least expensive model in Acura's lineup, but it also offers the most variety. The TSX's portfolio was expanded with a six-cylinder engine in 2010 and a wagon model in 2011. For 2012, a sporty-looking special edition -- allegedly inspired by the original Integra -- joins the fold. All these amendments are aimed at expanding the TSX's customer base, but they haven't diluted the character of the car. Based on the European-market Honda Accord, the TSX is a svelte, agile front-wheel-drive sport sedan. The 3.5-liter V-6 packs tremendous power, but we still prefer the balance and rev-happy nature of the 2.4-liter I-4, even if it is a little short on torque. We'd love to see a Sport Wagon with the manual transmission, but the six-speed is available only on sedans -- and special-edition sedans, at that. Competitors may offer a little more pizazz when it comes to the interior, but the TSX still shines as a driver's car. The suspension tuning was amended last year to provide more compliance over rough roads, but the TSX is far from soft. Body motions are kept in check, and the steering is sharp, somewhat tactile, and well weighted. The TSX is a surprisingly fun car to drive, no matter which engine or transmission it is equipped with.
Euro Spec Honda Accord Type S Side
When it comes to U.S.-spec midsize sedans, the Honda Accord is almost always near the top of the best-sellers list. In the U.K., however, the European-spec Accord – a four-door we get here as the Acura TSX – is a small blip in Honda’s sales numbers and the automaker has no “concrete plan” to release a new model, Autocar suggests.
