Consumer Guide

Since it was completely restyled in 2009, the Acura TSX is largely carried over for the 2011 model year, save for some very small cosmetic tweaks. The crisp-edged flanks, and generally modern, high-tech look of the TSX sedan is aimed right at younger professionals who don't cling to European brands—but still want a clean, conservative look. It's even better as a Sport Wagon: that trim body comes from Europe, and on looks alone, it's the most pleasing Acura, what with its Subaru-like slimness. Luckily for the TSX, both models underplay the bionic-beaver Acura grille that's been excoriated all over the Web--you don't quite get the same "it's Miller Time!" urge to open bottles on the grille's chevron as you do on the larger TL or RL sedans.

Inside, the basic styling elements are attractive and contemporary, with flowing, swoopy curves executed in pleasing materials and colors. It's never ruthless in its efficiency. An arcade of silvery plastic hones some of the visual weight from the dash, and the touchy bits never let on any lower-rent vibes. Wood trim is available, if you really want it.

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.
