2011 Acura TSX SportWagon: Sweet Sorrow and a Repurposed Ashtray

I'm not sure if the TSX returned to its rightful owners today, but I already miss it. Give it the same V6 and six-speed manual auto slated for the 2013 RDX, and discover a better way to minimize the cargo intrusion from those rear shock towers, and I'm in.

The above photo shows something I'll miss. The TSX emphatically states that this compartment is not an ashtray. Felt lining inside even drives home the point. But the compartment and accessory outlet do make a good dumbphone rest. No sacrificing a cupholder here.

But this is lame.

Enough with the proprietary USB connections. Volkswagen in back there, talking to you, too. Just give us the port and let us decide how to defile it (slightly harsh criticism in this application, as it works well for thumb drives. Easier to tuck away than the alternative of accidentally snapping a drive poking out inside a cluttered compartment).
