Automotive Editor -
The TSX is Acura's best-selling model for good reason: it's not only packed with features and performance, but it's also fuel-efficient and very reliable.


The Acura TSX represents a sound buy among entry-level luxury sedans. With a refined interior, choice of an economical four-cylinder engine or powerful V8 and generous list of standard equipment at a low price, it's one of the best values in the class. Couple that to renowned Honda reliability and Acura's high level of customer satisfaction, and the TSX is worth considering for people who like to spend their money wisely.

The TSX comes standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 201 horsepower mated to a standard five-speed automatic transmission. The base sedan comes standard with features like leather upholstery, HID headlamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and a 7-speaker audio system with XM satellite radio, Bluetooth and USB iPod interface. The Special Edition adds different exterior styling touches such as a front spoiler, aluminum pedals, suede seat inserts and an optional six-speed manual transmission. The V6 adds a 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V6, sport suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels and the Technology Package with satellite navigation with real-time traffic and weather, hard drive storage for audio files, backup camera and ELS surround sound premium audio.

The Audi A4 has a well-finished interior and powerful turbocharged engine with optional all-wheel drive, but costs more when similarly equipped. The Buick Regal offers a more efficient eAssist hybrid and is generally cheaper, but standard equipment levels are not as generous. The Volvo S60 has distinctive styling, long list of advanced safety options and all-wheel drive, but can cost much more than the Acura. The Volkswagen CC costs about the same, offers all-wheel drive on the V6 and a stronger base four-cylinder, but has less interior space.

So while the TSX isn't the freshest or most exciting model in the segment, it represents a pragmatic buy for people who want a lot of equipment for a relatively low price. On top of that, it's likely to be reliable and comfortable as well as efficient. If that appeals to you, the TSX is worth a drive.
