A well-rounded package providing a good mix of performance, sportiness, and luxurious amenities, the Acura TSX, while not as exciting to drive as the best sports sedans, is agile and adequately roomy. The powertrain is very smooth and the four-cylinder engine provides good fuel economy. Intuitive controls and impressive fit and finish are positives, but the ride is a bit too firm for some.
