Acura TSX Overview

The TSX is an enjoyable and mildly sporty car, and available as either a sedan or wagon. Its smooth-revving engine, slick transmission, and agile handling make it enjoyable to drive. But vague steering ultimately limits its sporting appeal. We got a respectable 25 mpg overall from the 2.4-liter four-cylinder. The taut ride can be busy at low speeds. Road noise is noticeable, but the cabin is otherwise quiet. The supportive front seats are well shaped, but rear-seat room is tight. A 3.5-liter V6 is optional on the sedan. For 2014 the TSX is being phased out along with the TL, and will be replaced by a single model, the TLX.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
