Expert Quotes:

Class-leading feature content

My favorite feature of the up-sell is the power tailgate, which lifts the hatch with a touch of a button on the key fob and closes it with another button along the tailgate's bottom
Los Angeles Times

Incredible Panasonic ELS surround-sound stereo

really easy-to-use standard USB port

The 2012 Acura TSX comes with a good set of convenience and comfort features--including excellent audio and navigation systems. A USB port, Bluetooth, XM, and leather seating with heated, powered front buckets are all on the standard-feature list. And while we see the available power tailgate for the wagon as silly here, we'd definitely stand behind the available Tech Package, which brings upgraded audio (ten-speaker, 425-watt) and navigation, plus a rear camera system.

This year, Acura has also added a TSX Special Edition that adds to the four-cylinder model a more aggressive front-end appearance, side sills, and five-spoke polished-finish alloys.

As much as the TSX covers the bases, though, it's still missing some extras, like adaptive cruise control, active parking aids, rear seat heaters, or accident-avoidance features--the sorts of items that are slowly trickling down from flagship luxury models.

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.
