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.

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.

Conclusion

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.

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.
