Model News

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.


Pros

Aggressive styling, athletic, nimble handling; good acceleration, excellent reliability, good standard interior appointments


Model Highlights

The 2009 TSX is the Acura is powered by a DOHC all-aluminum 2.4L inline-4 with i-VTEC variable timing. It now delivers 201 hp at 7,000 rpm and 172 ft-lb of torque at 4,300 rpm. Overall, power comes across a broader powerband and for the first time meets the EPA's strict emissions standards as an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV).

Power is delivered to the front wheels through either a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed automatic with a SportShift manual mode utilizing steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The car makes use of all its ponies quite sportily.

The TSX's chassis has been stiffened and ride dynamics have improved, while at the same time the ride is quieter in the cabin. Additionally, the car's suspension utilizes new dual-mode dampers, which change automatically given road and driving conditions.

Standard amenities across the TSX range are a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio and cruise controls, leather seating with power adjustability for both driver and passenger, remote keyless entry, a premium 7-speaker CD stereo and iPod connectivity, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, and power windows, locks, and mirrors.

The Technology Package adds intelligent navigation with a destination database, Zagat reviews, real-time traffic and weather reports, and Voice Recognition to allow drivers to operate the package through verbal commands.

Standard safety equipment includes four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control and stability assist, a tire pressure monitoring system, and a sophisticated six-airbag system.


Value Writeup

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.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
