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 TSX is a sporty front-wheel-drive compact sedan based loosely on the European-spec Honda Accord. The Acura TSX was completely redesigned for 2009, but carries over to 2010 largely unchanged apart from the addition of a new V-6 engine. On sale now, the car starts from $29,310 in base form and ranges up to a starting price of $37,950 for the V-6 with Technology Package.

Acura offers no visual redesign for the 2010 model year following a complete update in 2009. The aggressive front end, crisp-edged flanks, and generally modern, high-tech look of the TSX will likely please younger professionals, though more mature buyers may wonder what the fuss is about. Overall, however, the TSX presents a clean, conservative look that many reviewers like. Inside, much of the same can be said, especially once the TSX is outfitted with the electronics-heavy Technology Package. The basic styling elements are attractive and contemporary, with flowing, swoopy curves executed in pleasing materials and colors.

Standard power for the 2010 TSX comes from a 201-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder; the standard six-speed manual transmission definitely makes the car feel livelier, even though midrange torque has been boosted to make it more responsive with the paddle-shifted Sequential SportShift five-speed automatic transmission. All new for 2010 is a 280-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine option that delivers one of the few things the TSX previously lacked: power. Handling is still nimble and sporting, with a firm yet absorbent ride.
