Acura TSX 2011

The TSX has enough luxury amenities to satisfy all but the most demanding gourmet, while incorporating a decent amount of performance and driving pleasure. This is not a hard and fast sports sedan along the lines of the Audi A4, Lexus IS-250 or BMW 3 Series, but they may hold.

Especially now that he has a bigger engine. From 2010, you can order with TSX Honda 3.5-liter V-6 with four valves per cylinder technology and variable valve V-Tec. Versions of this engine are also in the Honda / Acura lineup, and in this configuration, it develops 280 horsepower and 252 lb.-ft. of torque. It is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission only, although you can get a six-speed manual transmission with standard-issue model four-cylinder 2.4-liter. My test model featured V-6 with Technology Package Acura. Interestingly, the level Acura TL also has this engine and you can get with six-speed manual.

Anyway, adding a few extra bottles provide a performance injection TSX healthy and it will be possible to obtain from a standing start to 100 km / h in six seconds, give or take. The automatic wheel mounted shift paddles as executive functioning quite well. I did not use them so well, but if you're feeling frisky and you will find on a quiet back street - yes, there you will feel. That said, it seems that the situation pretty much sums up automatic transmission that I can to TSX V-6. When the four-cylinder version with manual gearbox encourages you to run with enthusiasm and has the form of a sporting flavor, not the last regime. I ran my test car as I would any luxury sedan others who remains in automatic mode, in other words, with all v-con at full throttle. This is not a criticism, but I see V-6-model as more of a premium sedan than sport sedan.
