2012 Acura TSXMSRP

Smaller than the Acura TL sedan and larger than the RSX coupe, the 2012 Acura TSX is for those who may be shopping in the luxury level for the first time. Powered by Acura's 2.4-liter engine with i-VTEC, the 2012 TSX generates a healthy 200 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission, independent suspension and Vehicle Stability Assist brings the 2012 Acura TSX closer to its European competitors. Other items included in the Acura TSX price that add to the refined handling of the 2012 Acura TSX include:

Aluminum, 3.2-liter, 24-valve, 60-degree V-6 engine
Four-wheel disc brakes
17-inch wheels and V-rated tires
Double-wishbone suspension

One senses from the 2012 Acura TSX price and photo that the TSX is positioned between a luxury car and a sports car. Further proof of this is revealed in the standard features we list in our 2012 Acura TSX review:

Dual-zone climate control
Leather seating
360-watt premium sound system
Side curtain airbags
HID headlights

If you question whether you are getting a good value for the 2012 Acura TSX price, consider this list of amenities: cruise control, power windows, power 8-way driver's seat, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, split folding rear seatbacks, and heated mirrors.

The engine compartment of the Acura TSX cradles a powerful yet obedient 2.4 liter twin cam 16 valve four cylinder engine which produces a respectable 200 horsepower at 6800 rpm and 166 lb-ft of torque at 4500 rpm. All of this power is harnessed in the 2012 TSX by means of variable valve and cam timing controls. Offering the quickest 0 to 100 km/h time in its class: just 7.3 seconds, the 2012 Acura TSX accomplishes this with the aid of VTEC, exhibiting a very smooth, even torque profile. Continuing the presentation of 2012 Acura TSX review of performance specs, the gas mileage numbers are as follows: 11.3 l/100 km city and 8.2 l/100 km highway.

To make the handling of the 2012 TSX even more reminiscent of a European road car, Acura has installed independent double wishbone suspension, low profile Michelin MXM4 215/50R-17 inch all-season radials, and standard disc brakes with ABS and EBD. To restore traction and directional control in the event of a near skid, Acura employs Traction Control and Vehicle Stability Assist systems. If you are still not impressed with the specs we have presented in this 2012 Acura TSX review and photo, maybe you should consider taking a test drive. Only then, perhaps, will the power, performance, and style of the new 2012 Acura TSX live up to the promise of a luxury sports car.
