2013 Acura TSX Styling

Styling

The 2013 Acura TSX is tastefully styled inside and out, with a clean, conservative look overall--although some of its details won't appeal to everyone.

 

Clean details, unified styling, and pleasing proportions make the 2013 TSX appear handsome yet sporty.

Essentially a European-market Honda Accord, with different styling cues and features, the TSX is appealing and nicely proportioned--particularly in wagon form. With crisp-edged flanks, and a generally modern, high-tech look, the TSX is aimed right at younger professionals. One of the details that doesn't enhance the design--rather, it stands out as a sore spot for some--is the much-maligned "bionic beaver" grille.


A tasteful piece inside, the TSX makes it tough to point styling fingers. The dash spans over a gentle arc, and trims out with lots of high-quality plastic and leather. It's a clean design, one with well-organized controls. There are bits of metallic trim on the dash that help to cut some of the visual heft, but it's all high-quality to the eye and to the touch. There's wood trim on some models, but it feels out of place with this vibe.
