Incredible Panasonic ELS surround-sound stereo
Acura should do well with the younger, more tech-savvy audience
Acura has built its brand around the incredible number of cool high-tech features offered inside its vehicles. For the 2010 Acura TSX, Acura spares nothing and even comes with virtually all the features as standard equipment. Standard features include dual-zone climate control, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, plus a premium 7-speaker sound system with subwoofer and XM Satellite Radio capability. The optional navigation system offers real-time traffic and dynamic rerouting capability to direct you around hazards and congestion when possible. A 10-speaker, 415-watt sound system is also available, along with a six-disc CD changer in the Technology Package.
Cars.com concisely describes the Acura TSX's standard feature list as "long." It includes, in addition to the features listed above, "heated front seats, a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, [and] a power moonroof." Jalopnik likes the TSX's "really easy-to-use standard USB port" that makes it easy to hook up an MP3 player to the standard 7-speaker stereo. ConsumerGuide adds that standard "satellite radio" and "leather upholstery" are also included in the base price.
Thanks to its extensive standard feature list, there is only one option: the Technology Package. Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com universally praise the upgrade despite a sticker price of around $3,100. Automobile points out that the package "bundles a state-of-the-art navigation system featuring traffic and weather reports." Car and Driver finds the traffic and weather portions of the system especially interesting, noting that it can even give you "the atmospheric conditions at your programmed destination." Jalopnik focuses on the "killer ...10-speaker sound system" that Edmunds calls "one of the best factory stereos available." Edmunds likes the stereo so much, it says "it's a solid justification for the pricey tech pack" all by itself.
Despite the extensive standard feature set, the Technology Package is well worth the price, especially in light of the excellent upgraded audio system.
