The 2007 Acura TSX sticks to the basics when it comes to styling. Its look is clean, but also bland and conservative—which might in itself appeal to some.

Kelley Blue Book reports that the TSX "has the capability to serve as a business vehicle on the weekdays and a driving enthusiast's dream on the weekends." This more or less sums up the feelings of most reviewers consulted by TheCarConnection.com: The 2007 TSX is lauded for its sleek design, but generally, it's nothing to write home about.

Furthermore, trim selection is limited to one basic option for the '07 TSX. According to Cars.com, "Following a modest makeover for 2006, the only change for 2007 is the addition of a standard tire pressure monitoring system." In other words, there aren't a lot of design choices a buyer can make to keep things fresh and new; you basically get what the manufacturer puts in it for you. At the same time, however, Cars.com points out that in the 2007 TSX, "a fresh hood, new grille and updated bumper were also installed ... Inside, Acura's available navigation system was upgraded."

Edmunds says the 2007 Acura TSX offers a "high-quality interior." This feeling is echoed by Forbes, which notes that "superior interior design [is a] priority." Despite the overall great appearance of the design, however, ForbesAutos points out that drivers should "keep looking if you need space for four or five large adults," and the 2007 Acura's backseat is rather cramped.

Perhaps the harshest critics of the 2007 Acura TSX's design, however, are the editors at Autoblog, who are not impressed by the 2007 TSX. "Maybe the use of the word 'styling' is a bit liberal," they note, "but...it's a handsome vehicle, albeit a bit on the bland side. The Euro-Accord's front fascia fits in well with its bigger brothers and the rear certainly isn't as unattractive as some of its German competition, but it lacks visual weight."

TheCarConnection.com’s editors note that the most radically styled sport sedans are often also the ones that drop quickly out of fashion; thus, if the Acura name isn’t enough, buyers can assume that the TSX will appeal to enthusiasts when used, too.

Conclusion

The overall styling of the 2007 Acura TSX is clean, sleek, and sophisticated. Drivers seeking cutting-edge design may feel left behind, but most will approve of the look.

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.
