Pros

Superior handling and acceleration; aggressive styling; practical and fun sport wagon model

Model Highlights

The base TSX comes with a 2.4L i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine that delivers 201 horsepower with a 5-speed automatic transmission. The 280 horsepower 3.5L V6 engine and 5-speed automatic transmission returns for 2013. 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 Special Edition is available for the 4-cylinder TSX. It includes 17-inch alloy wheels, exterior body trim, red contrast seat stitching, special red instrumentation and drilled sport pedals. It can be had with either a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission, making it the only variant of the TSX available with a traditional manual.

The Sport Wagon TSX variant returns for 2013. 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.

Value Writeup

While the TSX is considered Acura's entry-level sedan, it lacks in neither performance nor luxury. The TSX's base MSRP belies its well-equipped nature, as it offers a host of luxury and convenience items on all trims. The 2013 TSX holds its own against more expensive competition such as the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Sport Wagon model takes all of the luxury and performance of the TSX sedan and adds cargo-carrying practicality.

Acura has left the TSX unchanged for 2013.

Crash Test Rating

US NHTSA CRASH TEST RESULTS:

Overall Rating: Not Rated

Overall Frontal Barrier Crash Rating: Not Rated

Overall Side Crash Rating: Not Rated

US NHTSA ROLLOVER RESISTANCE RATING: * * * * *
Dynamic Test Result: No Tip
Risk of Rollover: 9.9%

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. 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.
