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.
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.
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.
