The 2013 Acura TSX is a really fun car to drive. It’s sleek, sporty style, powerful engine, and fuel efficiency make it a great city-driving car without breaking the bank. Starting at under $34,000 CDN, you can’t go wrong with this well-built, easy-to-drive, mid-size sedan.
Under the hood is a 2.4L four-banger engine. Not enough power? Upgrade to the 3.5L V-6 and the Acura TSX really does have some get-up-and-go! In 2013 the TSX underwent a number of improvements in the engine compartment which all directly improved fuel economy. Even with all the improvements, the TSX will have you in-and-out of traffic and up the steep hills with ease and confidence the moment you touch the gas pedal.
On the outside, the TSX is easy to look at. The lines give it a feeling of speed and agility, just like it handles on fast, tight corners. The 17” aluminum-alloy wheels, chrome trim, and fog lights all add up to a sporty design. It screams city style with a touch of class, in a comfortable, yet easy-going kind of way.
The heated leather racing seats make you feel like your at the controls of a NASCAR, and the manual transmission will have you shifting through all six gears at lightning speed with comfort and ease. The headrests are perfectly positioned to sit-back, relax, and focus on the curves ahead. Open up the sunroof and turn-up the music from the steering wheel controlled entertainment system and you’ll be set to hit the long highway on your next adventure across town or across the country.
The TSX does come with BlueTooth integration for wireless telephone connectivity and has USB integration, it does lack the touch-screen driver experience package other vehicles in its class are now equipped with. It’s a small detail, but considering the great value, it’s not something to dwell over.
