The first choice buyers make is body style:
Most buyers opt for the four-cylinder engine, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that produces 201 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy ratings are 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway with the six-speed manual or 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway with the five-speed automatic transmission. The wagon is available only with this engine and an automatic transmission.
A more powerful 3.5-liter V6 with 280 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque is an option exclusive to the sedan. Expect 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.
Ever since its introduction a decade ago, the base price for a TSX has included almost every available feature. Leather upholstery, a moonroof and HID headlights are all standard, as is a 360-watt stereo system with satellite radio and seven speakers.
- Special-edition models spice things up with red-hued accents, suede seating and aluminum pedals.
- Those with the Technology Package gain an 8-inch screen that relays navigation, traffic and weather, a rearview camera and 10-speaker audio system with hard-disk drive to store music. In wagons, the package includes a power tailgate. V6 models, meanwhile, also get 18-inch alloy wheels and active sound control to tame interior noise.
