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

Overall, the 2013 Acura TSX comes with a solid set of standard equipment that makes this premium sedan feel well-equipped although not quite plush or lavish. But excellent audio and navigation systems are offered, USB and Bluetooth connectivity are covered, and comfortable leather upholstery is included.

Along with the Bluetooth hands-free calling interface and a USB port, XM satellite radio, heated power front buckets, and leather are all on the standard-feature list.

The only major lineup across much of the lineup is the Tech Package, and we recommend it as it brings a much-improved 415-watt audio system with ten speakers, Dolby surround sound, DVD Audio, and a Song by Voice feature, plus enhanced Bluetooth features and steering-wheel controls, and a navigation system with rear-view camera and real-time traffic with live rerouting. The climate control system is also upgraded with rear vents and a solar-sensing feature.

One feature--the available power tailgate for the wagon--we do see as a bit silly here, as the tailgate is light and low, a one-arm operation.

The only complaint we have about the TSX's feature list--other than, it's very limited--is that it's missing some tech extras, like adaptive cruise control, active parking aids, rear seat heaters, or accident-avoidance features. Increasingly so, these models are trickling down to compact luxury models, and they're what differentiate some of the luxury-brand smaller sedans.

The Special Edition model includes a more aggressive front-end look, plus side sills and five-spoke polished-finish alloys, and it's only offered in a few select colors. It's also limited to the TSX Sedan.


The 2013 TSX is quite lavishly equipped, but it's hardly a tech standout, even when equipped with the Tech Package.

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.
