New For 2013

Acura has made no changes to the TSX for 2013.

Overview

Acura touts its new ILX as a small, affordable entry point to the brand, but wasn’t that the point of the TSX? Officials insist the ILX’s content, pricing, and fuel-economy figures might woo today’s younger buyers, but we still see some reason to perhaps consider the slightly larger, slightly more expensive TSX. Six-cylinder power, for instance, is offered in the TSX but not in the ILX. The TSX is available in sport wagon form, whereas the ILX is offered only as a four-door sedan. Yes, the TSX package is starting to feel a little dated—it’s based off the European-market Accord, which debuted in late 2008—but there’s still a lot to like. The 3.5-liter V-6 packs tremendous power, but we still prefer the balance and rev-happy nature of the 2.4-liter four-cylinder, even if the smaller engine is a little short on torque. Competitors such as the BMW 3-series and Audi A4 might offer more pizazz when it comes to interior appointments, but the TSX still shines as a driver’s car and is far from soft. Body motions are kept in check, and the steering is sharp and well weighted. The TSX is a surprisingly fun car to drive, no matter what engine or body style you prefer.

Safety

Front, side, and side curtain air bags; ABS; stability control; and a tire-pressure monitoring system are standard.

Euro Spec Honda Accord Side View
The Honda Accord Euro will survive for a third generation, a report from CarAdvice suggests. Serving as the basis for the U.S.-market Acura TSX, the Honda Accord Euro was previously speculated to be without a direct replacement. With the Acura TSX and TL rumored to be combined into one TLX model in the next few years, though, it's not clear whether the TSX will also stretch into a new generation.
