Cozy feel, but spacious enough
Ride quality and the overall look and feel of the interior are strong points for the 2007 Acura TSX, but the tight backseat might be a sticking point.
The editors at Autoblog, who subject the 2007 TSX to a road trip, note that "fortunately, the interior of the TSX is a pleasant place to be, with thoughtful switchgear, comfortable seats, well-padded armrests and a bevy of aural selections—all well executed in minimalist fashion." ConsumerGuide especially likes the firm, well-bolstered front seats that help “keep occupants secure in exuberant cornering.”
Edmunds is also fond of the interior, pointing out that the 2007 Acura TSX is "a bit more upscale than the typical family four-door." However, like several others, the Edmunds reviewer points out that backseat space isn’t especially roomy: "Although TSX claims to seat five, read between the lines and know that a fifth passenger will suffer in the center seat." Kelly Blue Book also cautions that "rear-seat legroom might be tight for some adults."
Ride quality is a big positive for the 2007 Acura TSX, according to several reviewers. The Autoblog editor compliments the setup, “with most road imperfections easily muted through the double wishbone (front) and multi-link (rear) suspension." Such an ideal combination, with crisp handling and an absorbent ride, is quite hard to find in other models.
Reviewers turn in conflicting comments regarding refinement and noise. For instance, Cars.com reports, "This sedan is exceptionally quiet," but ConsumerGuide says the TSX is “not luxury-class hushed,” pointing to the audible engine and intrusive tire noise on coarse pavement, though the reviewer concedes it “isn't irksome.”
The 2007 Acura TSX will likely delight shoppers with its interior appointments, but beware the tight quarters in back.
