Vehicle Overview
Two years into its second generation, the TSX receives a handful of styling and mechanical updates, as well as a new wagon variant. TSX competitors include the Audi A4, BMW 328i, Buick Regal and Lexus IS 250.

Changes for 2011 include a new grille, revised bumpers and fog lights, and new taillights. Inside, the dashboard and door trim carry new finishes, and the navigation system has been upgraded to Acura's latest version. New rear air-conditioning vents sit between the front seats, and additional insulation aims to cut cabin noise. Finally, friction reductions to both the four-cylinder and the V-6 improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 mpg overall. There's also a new wagon variant, dubbed the TSX Sport Wagon.

Exterior
The TSX's wheels are accented by large fender flares, and the front of the car is defined by a grille that features a silver-colored upper bar. The predominant visual change for 2011 affects the bumper, where a trapezoidal air dam has been reversed. It's now larger at its base, projecting a frowning expression versus last year's smiling air dam. Exterior features include:
  • Standard xenon headlights
  • Standard fog lights and mirror-integrated turn signals
  • 17-inch silver alloy wheels standard on four-cylinder models
  • 18-inch silver alloy wheels standard on V-6 models


Interior
The TSX's interior has a high-quality appearance and room for up to five people. The standard stereo is USB/iPod compatible. Bluetooth connectivity is also standard. The center controls have been redesigned for 2011, and the optional navigation system has 400 percent better resolution versus last year's system. It also boasts enough hard drive space for 15 gigabytes of uploaded personal music, as well as faster processing power and expanded map coverage. Interior features include:
  • Standard power-adjustable heated front seats
  • Standard leather upholstery and moonroof
  • Standard dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Mobile phones with audio players can sync with TSX's audio system using Bluetooth
  • Available navigation system with traffic and weather updates
  • Available CD/DVD-Audio disc compatible surround-sound system with 10 speakers


Under the Hood
Thanks to reduced friction, combined EPA gas mileage for the front-wheel-drive TSX's four-cylinder engine is 26 mpg with a five-speed automatic or 24 mpg with a six-speed manual. Both are up 1 mpg versus last year's numbers. The V-6, which comes only with the automatic, now gets 23 mpg combined — a 2-mpg improvement over last year. All automatics include steering-wheel paddle shifters. Mechanical features include:
  • 201-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 170 (automatic) or 172 (manual) pounds-feet of torque; five-speed automatic or six-speed manual
  • 280-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 with 254 pounds-feet of torque; five-speed automatic only


Safety
Safety features include:
  • Antilock brakes
  • Frontal and side-impact airbags for the front seats
  • Side curtain airbags for both rows
  • Electronic stability system
  • Active head restraints for front seats


TSX Sport Wagon
A wagon version of the TSX entry-luxury car joined the lineup for the 2011 model year. The wagon's design doesn't differ much from the sedan's until you get to the rear, where an open cargo area replaces the trunk. Back to top
