How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

The Basics:

At TheCarConnection.com, experts have pulled together reviews of the 2007 Acura TSX from across the industry to cull the best possible input for buyers. Editors from TheCarConnection.com have also added their own firsthand experiences with the car to provide a complete overview.

The 2007 Acura TSX is the lowest-priced Acura, a front-wheel-drive compact sport sedan with a 2.4-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder engine making 205 horsepower. The 2007 TSX offers a choice of a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission or the five-speed Sequential SportShift automatic transmission.

Overall, the TSX is more enjoyable to drive with the manual transmission than the automatic. The manual has one of the nicest linkages in the market, but the automatic can be hesitant at corners and grades.

Although the appearance of the TSX is conservative, it feels anything but that behind the wheel. The brakes respond firmly and confidently; the suspension brings a good combination of nimble control, yet soaks up potholes; and the steering is responsive and communicative, thanks in part to a great variable-assist power steering system. It gets good fuel economy of up to 31 mpg on the highway, but the '07 Acura TSX does drink premium unleaded fuel.

Inside, the 2007 Acura TSX remains far from cutting-edge in look and feel, but it maintains the updates of 2006 (including the multi-info display, matte-metallic surfaces, and a revised steering wheel and gauges). The switchgear is simple but solid. The seats feel good in the front, but backseat legroom is a problem for adults.

Despite the fact that the Acura TSX is the entry-level rung of the 2007 Acura line, the convenience features are good. Look for a power moonroof, a rearview mirror that dims automatically, and a Bluetooth setup for hands-free calling. Leather upholstery is also standard.

The 2007 Acura TSX can’t boast a strong overall showing in the battery of U.S. crash tests. In IIHS trials, the 2007 TSX scores well for frontal impact (a rating of "good"). Federal test scores give the TSX five stars for frontal impact, and four to five stars in side impact. Other tests aren't as resoundingly positive; side impacts score "acceptable," and rear impacts score "poor." Regardless, features include anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control, and front side and side-curtain airbags.

Likes:

  • Fun to drive with manual transmission
  • Smooth and rev-happy engine
  • Excellent, supportive front seats
  • Classy design will age well

Dislikes:

  • More road noise than typical
  • Tight backseat
  • Recalcitrant automatic transmission
