The wide-ranging appeal of the 2011 Acura TSX sport wagon cannot be denied. If automotive journalists were to recommend a single vehicle for America that would satisfy the most people, it would probably be a diesel sport wagon with a manual gearbox. But then, not many Americans like diesels and wagons so this suggestion may not actually be that well-accepted. Honda Motor Co. said that its best bet is its 2011 TSX sport wagon.
That’s because it isn’t a diesel and it doesn’t have a stick shift but it is also a luxurious wagon utility that has a new grille. This wagon is sporty enough and it can rival the German Avants and American Cadillac CTS wagons. But with a starting price of $31,000, the 2011 Acura TSX sport wagon is far more attractive. The TSX sedan adds four inches to the body and it replaces its fuel-efficient 2.4-liter DOHC with variable valve timing I-4 under the hood. The engine has an output of 201hp and 172 pound-feet of torque to make it race past the highway but then its rivals have more power as they use six and eight cylinders.
It has an independent suspension that provides a smooth luxury ride. However, the wagon can be handled extremely well through corners with its outstanding excellent steering feel via its electric power steering with variable assist rack-and-pinion. The TSX sport wagon offers a good ride in every way possible. It has the same 106.4-inch wheelbase as the TSX sedan since all the revisions were done on the rear door back.
