2011 Acura TSX Review

Acura gives Europe some competition

Reviewed by Automotive on

In a Nutshell
The 2011 Acura TSX is a highly desirable luxury sedan that now has a wagon variant. Equipped with a 201-horsepower 2.4-liter I-4 engine, with an optional 280 horsepower 3.5-liter V-6, Acura now competes with Germans such as Audi and BMW. Both five-speed automatic and six-speed manual are available.

Loaded with standard features and options, the Acura TSX is a high-technology favorite in the car market. Its bold front end actually works on this car and gives it a European look. Standard safety features also about, and its fuel economy rating is in the 20 mpg city/28 mpg hwy range. Known for its superb maneuverability, the 2011 Acura TSX is lighter than more cars in its class and as a result it receives high marks for driving dynamics.

New for 2011

The 2011 Acura TSX gets new front and rear styling, a revised front grille and rear taillights, and restyled 17-inch wheels. Newly developed automatic shift logic improves the Acura TSX's performance, feel, and fuel economy. Among the minor updates to the interior are new stitching on the trim, as well as a new optional navigation system, improved sound insulation, and upgraded LED lighting.

On the Outside

The new Acura TSX wagon adds a refreshing variant to the sedan. V-6 models vary slightly with a trunk badge and revised front fascia that provides better cooling.

From the Inside

A few of the standard features on the 2011 Acura TSX are auto climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, automatic headlights, power seats, and moon roof. V-6 trims get an active noise cancellation capability, but you might not notice the difference.

Driving Performance

With a 4-cylinder engine, the Acura TSX has long been favored for its sublime driving dynamics -- due in part to its relatively lightweight trim dimensions and a slick six-speed manual transmission. However, the V-6 adds roughly 280 pounds, from I-4 manual to V-6 automatic transmissions.

Safety Equipment

Standard safety features in the 2011 Acura TSX include driver and front passenger dual-stage front and front side air bags, side curtain air bags, ABS, and stability control. Front seat passengers also have active head restraints.

Gas Mileage

TSX 4 cylinder 6MT: 20 mpg city/28 mpg hwy
TSX 4 cylinder 5AT: 21 mpg city/30 mpg hwy
TSX V6 5AT: 18 mpg city/27 mpg hwy
