Consumer Guide



Even though the 2013 Acura TSX is a step smaller than the TL sedan, we see it as being just as strong of a pick for safety-minded shoppers. Although the TSX's feature list is missing some of the active-safety options that are becoming expected in a luxury-brand vehicle.

While the TSX has earned top 'good' results in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash tests, as well as the IIHS Top Safety Pick designation in prior model years, the TSX hasn't been tested in recent years by the federal government.

The TSX includes all the expected standard safety features in this class--including active front-seat headrests--but it's missing some of the advanced safety-tech options like a blind-spot warning system or active cruise control. A rear-view camera system is available though, and some drivers might benefit from it, although overall outward visibility is reasonably good. 

Conclusion

The 2013 Acura TSX has reassuring ratings, but its features and options lists lack active-safety extras.

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.
