The TSX is a pleasant and mildly sporty sedan. Its smooth revving engine, slick transmission, and agile handling make it enjoyable to drive. However, vague steering ultimately limits the car's sporting appeal.

2007-2012 Lexus ES Review from Consumer Reports
The Lexus ES is a luxurious sedan that specializes in a posh interior and quiet, smooth ride. Fuel economy is relatively good. Don't expect the ES to be fun to drive though. We've taken a first drive of the new Lexus ES: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOpsFg2H_S8

Lexus IS Review from Consumer Reports
The well-finished but snug Lexus IS is fuel efficient and has simple controls. Steering feel and ride, however, aren't as good as some others in this class.

2012 Acura TSX Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/acura/tsx/2012/ The 2012 Acura TSX is a perfect mix of a luxury and sports car. You can trace the roots of the TSX all the way back to the Acura Integra which is a legend in the sport compact car world. But the TSX has grown up and sports 4-doors and tons of luxury features. But make no mistake; the sports car blood line is still present. The 2012 Acura TSX has a base price of $30,010 with the top of the line sedan version costing $38,650.
The 2012 Acura TSX comes with 2 available engines. The first is a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine with VTECH. This engine makes 201 horsepower and 170 lb-ft. of torque and gets 22 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway. This engine is mated to either a 5-speed automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual. There is a lager 3.5 liter V-6 engine available. This motor produces 280 horsepower and 254 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy for this engine is 19 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.
The sporty engine is just one of the many attributes that make the 2012 Acura TSX such a great performance sedan. The front suspension is a double-wishbone unit while the rear is a multi-link suspension which improves stability. The steering is very light and precise. There are 11 inch brakes all around that are highly responsive. High-Strength steel is used throughout the underbody which not only keeps weight down, but adds to the rigidiy of the vehicle. This helps with handling but more important aids in helping return a smoother ride.
On the inside there is a ton of leather both on the seats and many of the surfaces. The Acura ELS Surround is a premium sound system that is available as an option. The Technology Package adds an 8-inch touch screen navigation unit. The 2012 Acura TSX comes with six airbags including front, side, and rear curtain airbags to protect all passengers. The TSX has a Vehicle Stability Assist System that uses sensors along with the ABS system to keep the vehicle in control. These systems help the 2012 Acura TSX Sedan make it to the IIHS Top Safety List for 2012.

Roadfly.com - 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon w/Tech Package Road Test & Review
New for 2011, the TSX Sport Wagon adds an extra-strength dose of utility to Acura's entry-level model.
The addition of the wagon bodystyle gives the TSX more cargo room than competitors from Audi, BMW, and Volvo, at almost 26 cubic feet with the rear seats up, and over 60 cubic inches with the seats folded.
Powertrain options are limited: the TSX Sport Wagon comes only with the base 2.4L inline-4, paired with a 5-speed automatic.
That gets the car to 60mph in the mid-eight-second range, and delivers an EPA-rated 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway.
Priced at $34,610 (plus $860 destination charge), our fully loaded TSX Sport Wagon with Technology Package substantially undercut the starting MSRPs of competing wagons from Audi and BMW. Its huge price advantage, combined with Acura's typically excellent reliability and resale value makes this wagon an extremely smart buy.

2012 Acura TSX Sedan Update, Walkaround, and Extended Test Drive
A few months ago, we reviewed my parents brand new 2012 Acura TSX, now it's time to Take it to the Redline!
"Somewhere between sensible and luxurious, the 2012 Acura TSX has found a home. With a sprinkling of sporty athleticism thrown in for good measure, the TSX is the epitome of the multi-talented entry-level luxury car." (Edmunds.com)
2012 Acura TSX Wagon Road Test & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/acura/tsx/2012/station-wagon/ The Acura TSX Wagon debuted in 2011. So, for the 2012 current model year there are minimal changes. For some reason the Station Wagon is not as popular here in the U.S. as it is elsewhere in the world. But the 2012 Acura TSX Wagon is one good looking car that combines practicality and luxury all into one neat package. The base model TSX Station Wagon has a price of $31,160. The car is powered by a 2.4L 4-cylinder V-Tech engine that produces 201 horsepower and 170 lb-ft. of torque. The small engine size is very fuel efficient and allows the 2012 Acura TSX Wagon to get 22 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway.
The 2012 Acura TSX Station Wagon is one of the more sporty and fun to drive wagons on the market. And concerning the luxury car segment the TSX is one of the better deals.
