Between its long list of high-end features, well-trimmed interior, agile handling and willing engine, the Acura TSX is one of the best values on the market when it comes to affordable sport sedans.

While a four-cylinder is usually not ideal in a luxury car, this one is so refined that some owners may give up on V6s altogether. The smooth six-speed manual transmission is well suited to the hp four, and shifts are precise and the gates easy to find. Of course, you can't go wrong with the smooth-shifting automatic, either.
Handling is equally impressive, if not more so, as the steering is quick and exact while the precisely tuned suspension holds body roll in check.
During more subdued driving, the Acura TSX never forgets its luxury branding and delivers a solid, compliant ride that always feels just right. Inside, the Acura TSX offers a beautifully furnished interior that looks and feels more upscale than you would expect.
