The Acura TSX is all new for 2009. The TSX is powered by an all-aluminum 2.4L inline-4 producing 201 hp. Exterior styling is an aggressive evolution of that seen on the Honda Accord, with bulging wheel wells, angular headlights, and a bold front grille treatment. The new TSX is longer and wider than the car it replaces, and features both a wider track and longer wheelbase.
Aggressive styling, athletic, nimble handling; good acceleration, excellent reliability, good standard interior appointments
While the TSX is considered Acura's entry-level sedan, it does not lack in either performance or luxury. The TSX's low base price belies its well-equipped nature, as it offers the convenience of standard Bluetooth connectivity, automatic headlights, premium stereo, and more. Even better, the car easily stacks up against more expensive competition like the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
