A Buyer’s Guide to the 2012 Acura TSX SportWagon

Acura TSX Sportswagon 2012

The 2012 Acura TSX SportWagon has the perfect combination of utility and performance. The vehicle is pleasant to drive and makes luxury a priority. The TSX SportWagon uses electrically boosted power steering, which provides you with more stability driving on the highway. The suspension has no problem handling potholes or torn up sections of the pavement on the highway as well. You will hardly notice any body roll as the suspension can handle hard corners. Its competitors, the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series come at a much higher price tag while still offering similar features. If you are looking for a nicely priced luxury vehicle, the Acura TSX SportWagon is for you.

Key Features

The Acura TSX SportWagon comes with a 2.4 liter four cylinder engine that offers 201 hp at 7,000 rpm. It has a five speed automatic transmission and can seat five passengers.

Standard features include eight way adjustable driver seat, leather seats, heated seats, four way adjustable passenger seat, Bluetooth, seven speaker sound system, satellite radio, and a USB port.

Changes for 2012

What We Like

The Acura TSX SportWagon has excellent fuel economy, especially for highway driving. The vehicle offers ample space in the rear to accommodate cargo or luggage. The audio system is another impressive feature that sets the TSX SportWagon above its competitors. The Technology package comes with Bluetooth and a touchscreen to control your music while on the go. It also has a variety of other features which include Internet radio and weather reports.

What Concerns Us

While the vehicle drive smooth and calm, this can get a little boring if you are searching for something sportier. Furthermore, when you first sit in the vehicle the number of knobs and buttons can be a bit overwhelming. It takes a little bit of time to get used to this and some people may find it rather annoying.
