Article by Christian Andrei, on April 29, 2010

Previously announced, the all-new 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon made its debut today at the New York Auto Show. The new 2011 TSX Sport Wagon is the perfect car for those folks with a growing family or who have an active lifestyle and promises to offer a comfortable and spacious cabin with seating for up to five adults.

Clearly inspired by the 2010 Honda Accord Sport Wagon, the car features a chiseled, muscular body and sloping roofline and the design is completed by the 17-inch, 5-spoke aluminium wheels.

Powering the new car is the 2.4-liter, DOHC i-VTEC, inline four-cylinder engine mated to a Sequential SportShift 5-speed automatic transmission fit with steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters.

The new car promises to deliver an impressive fuel consumption of 30 mpg on the highway (EPA-estimated). Inside, we find advanced technologies such as hard disk drive-based Acura Navigation System with an all-new 8-inch full VGA high-resolution color display and AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic and Weather featuring radar image mapping.

Also, for the audiophile, the 2011 TSX Sport Wagon will be available with an Acura/ELS Surround Premium Audio System and a hard disk drive (HDD) for media storage.

The list of standard features is impressive and includes a power glass moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seats, a premium sound system, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, and USB port and AUX jack music interface.

If you are already interested and want to buy the new vehicle you have to know that the 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon will arrive at the dealerships in the late fall and will join the TSX lineup, which already includes the popular 4-cylinder and sporty V-6 powered sports sedans.
