2013 Acura TSX Comfort & Quality

Comfort & Quality

The 2013 Acura TSX remains a step smaller than the TL sedan, but you might be surprised to find that there's not all that much of a difference in interior comfort. And with excellent seats, a good driving position, reasonable cargo space, and good ride quality, the TSX proves itself to be more useful than a number of dedicated sport sedans that are around the same exterior size.

The front seats you get throughout the TSX lineup are impressive, as they fit a wide range of sizes and are quite adjustable; they do tend to be on the firm side, however. In back, the TSX definitely borders on tight on legroom for six-footers, with headroom limited as well, but four average-height adults can fit just fine--much better, it seems, than in rivals like the Audi A4.

Well-coordinated, upscale cabin appointments and great front seats add appeal--and the TSX Wagon is a space-efficiency star--but back-seat space is tight.

There's plenty of space for cargo as well. The trunk in sedans is surprisingly roomy, and the Sport Wagon models  have more space and a low flat floor that does come with one sacrifice: There's no spare tire on that model (just a repair kit).

Across the TSX model line, there are plenty of in-cabin pockets and compartments; cabin materials are nothing special in themselves, but they're all well-coordinated, with good fit and finish.

Ride comfort can be a bit on the firm side, but it's about on par with other mid-size sporty luxury sedans; although some coarse road surfaces can transmit noise into the cabin, it's reasonably tight and quiet most of the time.
