2009 Redesign Year
The second-generation TSX delivers enough sportiness to be enjoyable while maintaining solid credentials as a well-rounded and capable car. A smooth and economical four-cylinder engine delivers responsive performance, the front seats are excellent and the interior is well appointed.
But in some ways the TSX feels ordinary. The ride is nervous and handling, though agile, is let down by steering that is short on feedback. The tight rear seat is another shortcoming. A wagon model is also available. Later years have a backup camera included with the optional navigation system. The TSX was discontinued after the 2014 model year.

2004 Redesign Year
Straddling the family- and upscale-sedan categories, the TSX is based on the smaller European-sold version of the Honda Accord. Modest power keeps it from being as exciting to drive as the best sports sedans, but agile handling and a slick manual gearbox help.
Our major beef is the stiff ride. Fuel economy is good at 23 mpg with the smooth five-speed automatic, but the car requires premium fuel. Interior fit and finish are impressive, but the cabin is relatively snug. Controls are logically arranged, including the optional touchscreen navigation system. Stability control is standard, which is impressive for the time. Comprehensive standard equipment includes leather and a sunroof.
