Consumer Guide



The 2012 Acura TSX is an IIHS Top Safety Pick--reassuring if you're choosing it as a family vehicle--although we've found outboard visibility to be a little tough.

Its features set is impressive, with all the expected items, plus active headrests, but it's missing some of the leading safety-tech options like blind-spot warning or active cruise control; a rearview camera system is optional, though. 

The TSX keeps its "good" ratings from the IIHS in all categories, including the new-roof crush test; but it hasn't yet been rated in the revised federal NCAP tests.

Conclusion

The 2012 Acura TSX doesn't boast any of the active-safety extras offered in some luxury-brand rivals, but its ratings are assuring.

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.
