Model Highlights

The base TSX comes with a 2.4L i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine that delivers 201 horsepower with either a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission. The 280 horsepower 3.5L V6 engine and 5-speed automatic transmission returns for 2011. The automatic transmission includes SportShift manual override and steering wheel paddles. The car's sporty handling comes courtesy of a special suspension that utilizes dual-mode dampers. These dampers have the ability to change automatically given road and driving conditions.

A new Sport Wagon TSX variant appears in 2011. Based on the 4-cylinder TSX sedan, the wagon brings the refinement, handling and subtle styling of the sedan, but adds 30 cubic feet of cargo in back.

Standard equipment on all TSXes includes a power moonroof, xenon HID headlights, heated front seats, leather upholstery, automatic climate control, satellite radio and HandsFreeLink (Bluetooth) wireless connectivity.

Safety equipment includes 4-wheel antilock brakes, Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control, a tire pressure monitoring system and front side-impact airbags, overhead curtain airbags and new active anti-whiplash front head restraints.

The optional Technology Package, available on both the sedan and wagon models, includes a navigation system with voice activation and real-time traffic and weather, integrated rearview camera parking assist, a 10-speaker and a 415-watt surround-sound audio.

Model News

A new Sport Wagon model appears for 2011. Utilizing the sedan's 2.4L 4-cylinder, it adds a 31.5 cubic foot cargo area behind the rear seats.

Grigio Metallic paint is out for 2011, as is Palladium Metallic and Polished Metal. Forged Silver Metallic and Graphite Luster paints have been added in their place.

The V6 sedan gets standard 18-inch 5-spoke alloys, replacing last year's 17-inch wheels.

Value Writeup

While the TSX is considered Acura's entry-level sedan, it lacks in neither performance nor luxury. The TSX's base MSRP price of just over $29,000 belies its well-equipped nature, as it offers a host of luxury and convenience items on all trims. The 2011 TSX holds its own against more expensive competition like the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The new Sport Wagon model takes all of the luxury and performance of the TSX sedan and adds cargo-carrying practicality.
