Acura’s TSX Sport Wagon: What the critics say

Prices start at $30,960.

The Washington Post
If “the very thought” of buying a station wagon makes you feel old, this sporty Acura may be just what you need. With lots of cargo space and a “peppy but economical” 201-hp engine, it’s “blessed with the ability to turn daily errands into pleasant road trips.” Just don’t expect sport-coupe performance: This is a vehicle “built more for safe hauling than for taking corners at exuberant speeds.”

Autoblog
Like several other automakers, Acura has neatly transformed one of its sedans into a people-hauler for a new generation. The aptly named Sport Wagon provides “an engaging driving experience” alongside such upscale standard amenities as heated leather seats that “wrap around your body like a mold.” With better fuel economy and a much lower price than any of its neo-wagon competitors are offering, it represents “a welcome step in the continued resurrection of the premium wagon.”

Automobile
Though we wish Acura offered a standard-transmission option, it’s good to see that the company isn’t trying to compete with BMW or Audi here. This is, simply, “a well-built compact wagon” and a “smart, practical, and sexy alternative” to the crossovers and SUVs that dominate today’s highways and shopping malls.
