2012 Acura TSX Owners Manual – Honda Pdf Download Acura’s TSX models are sporty compacts, just short of mid-size, and aimed toward those who want a premium look and feel with a little more comfort and practicality compared to traditional sport sedans like the BMW 3-Series or Infiniti G37.
The TSX is sized in the same range as those models, but its interior is roomier than most– in back-seat space, especially. The majority of the TSX lineup comes in sedan form, though last year Acura brought the wagon back, albeit only in four-cylinder form, as the TSX Sport Wagon.
Based on the European-market Honda Accord, the TSX has a attractive styling inside and out– particularly in wagon form– though it does have its low points. The latest, much-maligned Acura grille that’s ingloriously been dubbed a “bionic beaver” was very slightly softened last year, but otherwise these are nicely proportioned vehicles on the outside.

The cabin’s more overtly handsome, with a gentle arc that spans the dash, plus cleanly designed, easy-to-use controls and high-quality materials.
The base engine on the TSX sedan (and the only one in the Sport Wagon) remains a 201-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, and it’s spunky and more than adequate with either the six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission (Sport Wagon shoppers also have to stick with the automatic).
