While its understated looks make it seem like just another family sedan, you won’t be disappointed in the TSX’s performance. And it will hold 5 adults, take care of your every physical need, and trundle to the grocery store like the most prosaic economy car.

If you’re looking for reasonable performance, coupled with outstanding comfort and value in a near-luxury sedan, Acura’s compact-to-midsize TSX is still a good choice.

Staff Review Edmunds.com 7.8 out of 10 2012 Acura TSX Sedan

Though not quite as compelling as a couple other rivals, the 2012 Acura TSX is nonetheless a smart choice for an entry-level luxury sedan or wagon. If you find yourself shopping for a car that’s both sensible and luxurious, we see no reason why it shouldn’t be at the top of your list.

The front-wheel-drive Acura TSX is stylish, comfortable, and economical to drive with either the four- or six-cylinder engine. It’s hard to beat.

A comfortable and practical car boasting decent fuel economy, the 2012 Acura TSX Sport Wagon offers a few high-tech features in the cabin, but the engine and transmission are trapped in the last decade.

While other Acuras suffer muddled messaging and middling performance, the TSX Sport Wagon might hold a clue or two to the way back home to Tochigi. It sticks to Honda’s light, compact, and responsive heritage, with a smidge of the trappings of luxury.

The 2011 TSX sport wagon provides enough sportiness to get most drivers in trouble and have the car mentioned in the same sentence with German Avants and American Cadillac CTS wagons. With a starting price of $31,000, it’s cheaper than all of them.

Like similar wagons from Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo, Acura’s TSX Sport Wagon is a terrific alternative to a sport-ute. With cargo-hauling capacities similar to those of a compact SUV you get a fun-to-drive car with good fuel economy.
