New cars: Acura TSX

What the critics say about the $28,960 Acura TSX.

Edmunds.com
This “entry-level luxury sport sedan” may not have the prestige of European rivals. But it delivers “plenty of value for the dollar,” including ample seating for five and high-end features such as heated, power front seats and wireless Bluetooth phone connectivity. A touch-screen navigation system is optional. Unfortunately, the car’s Honda roots show in a weak four-cylinder engine that “comes up a little short” in torque output.
 
The New York Times
The TSX’s styling is “pleasant but unremarkable,” and this 3,419-pound, front-wheel-drive sedan is powered by only a 201-hp engine. Yet the car does feature some impressive standard equipment, including power mirrors and moon roof, an anti-skid system, anti-lock brakes, and side and curtain air bags.

U.S. News & World Report
The new TSX rates third among the top five upscale small cars, “based on our analysis of 62 published reviews and test drives.” The luxurious interior comes with a “reasonable price tag.” The four-cylinder engine is dependably fuel-efficient, and the TSX does “very well in government crash tests.” Both a five-speed automatic and a six-speed manual are available.
