While the 2008 Acura TSX may put off those who appreciate tradition, its contemporary styling will appeal to drivers with a high-tech aesthetic.

The CarConnection.com notes only one basic trim for the 2008 Acura TSX. Cars.com reports that the Acura TSX "received a modest makeover for 2006," adding that "nothing has changed for 2008." That said, this source goes on to report that "Acura promotes the sport sedan's aggressive appearance" and notes that "xenon lights sit above lower air intakes that suggest racing brake ducts."

Using a metaphor from a popular television sitcom, Edmunds compares this 2008 Acura to "the classy, refined Charlotte" (from Sex and the City). Kelley Blue Book acknowledges that "some complain the [Acura] TSX is rather basic in its execution," but believes that "its sharp lines and clean appearance will stand the test of time better than some of the more trendy designs currently on the market."

Regarding the interior, Car and Driver describes this 2008 Acura as a "driver oriented cockpit" (but fails to specify in what way); Edmunds describes the "refined yet high-tech interior" as "attractive and well-made." In general, the 2008 Acura TSX "features one of the nicest interiors in its class"; this source notes that "the cabin toes a line between traditional luxury and a modern, high-tech aesthetic."

Kelley Blue Book offers more details, reporting that the Acura TSX's "dash is handsomely adorned with wood or aluminum and soft-touch vinyl and the instrument panel puts on its own light show once the sun sets; it's all truly a work of art."

Conclusion

The 2008 Acura TSX features clean, contemporary lines and a high-tech aesthetic inside and out.

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.
