2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon: So Much Better in Sport Mode

July 28, 2011

Whenever I slip into the Acura TSX wagon I think, "I like this car." But when driving in regular "D" mode, I find its 201-hp 2.4-liter inline 4 a little lacking in excitement.

When I select "S" mode, however, the engine feels more powerful. The transmission allows the TSX engine to rev higher before shifting. And you can go fully manual by using the paddle shifters. It makes for a much more enjoyable drive.

So, when you're stuck in traffic or are concerned about fuel economy, choose D. But when you want to drive, choose S.
