Acura TSX

This TSX delivers enough sportiness to be enjoyable while maintaining solid credentials as a well-rounded and capable car. An 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.

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Motorcycle like high rev engine with paddle shifters is fun to drive without dealing with a stick shift in city drive. Wish it has more power to keep up with its competitors but just powerful enough with everyday city / weekend drives."

Anonymous, IL (2010 Acura TSX)

"very nice performance for the price range and still gets good mpg"

Todd R., CT (2010 Acura TSX)

"Handles and drives very well on both long and short trips."

Anonymous, VA (2010 Acura TSX)

"Fun to drive."

Ronald S., FL (2010 Acura TSX)

"Electric power steering is a new experience and not as pleasing as hydraulic power steering. Tendency to wander."

GARY H., TX (2010 Acura TSX)

"A euro firm suspension with a 6-speed manual makes driving the 4 cyl fun. It was a shame they didn't offer this vehicle with a turbo or v6 for a little more pop, especially at high speeds (80+)"

Anonymous, PA (2010 Acura TSX)

"I continue to be impressed with the precise handling of the TSX. I feel so much more secure than with my previous auto."

"Great pick up for a four cylinder engine, handles great in all weather conditions."

JOHN G., FL (2010 Acura TSX)

"Feel like it should handle better than it does even with after market tires"

"The car handles beautifully. It really hugs the road in every situation."

J N., CT (2010 Acura TSX)

"For my first small engine car. I don't mind the 4 cyl engine. It's responsive with no lag."

"Handles well and very easy to drive and accelerate."

Robert C., MD (2010 Acura TSX)

"Holds the road"

Anonymous, VA (2010 Acura TSX)

"The TSX leans more towards a sports car with good acceleration and handling. That said it also is not a smooth and quiet ride as its replacement, the TLX."

Larry E., OH (2010 Acura TSX)

"The car accelerates nicely from a standstill, has excellent low speed torque, I have no trouble entering traffic on an expressway and it holds the road almost as good as a sports car."

Albert Z., CT (2010 Acura TSX)

"Quick and low center of gravity"

Anonymous, CT (2010 Acura TSX)

"good acceleration for a 4 cycl. car and sensitive handling"

Anonymous, NJ (2010 Acura TSX)

"The Acura TSX has great acceleration for a 4 cylinder car. However, the steering is so sensitive that it's easy to over correct and sometimes hard to maintain a single lane. It definitely handles like a touchy sports car, but this is quite annoying for every day driving and highway driving."

Matt K., TX (2010 Acura TSX)

"Good acceleration for a small engine; comfortable ride."

Kelly T., WA (2010 Acura TSX)

"Handles very well--could be called a sports sedan. Love the gear shifting paddles, although I use them rarely."

Anonymous, MN (2010 Acura TSX)

"Too much road noise."

JIM H., FL (2010 Acura TSX)

"Only driver seat has support. Uncomfortable on long rides for passenger. Back seat had no leg room and I am short! Shocks are practically missing in action. Very noisy ride."

PATRICIA P., NJ (2010 Acura TSX)

"The seats are molded to provide comfort and support. Our other car is a 2016 Toyota Avalon, whose seats are flat in comparison. That makes them uncomfortable on long drives, unlike the ones in the Acura."

KENT D., VA (2010 Acura TSX)

"The ride is somewhat noisy."

JOHN M., OK (2010 Acura TSX)
