2011 Acura TSX Wagon: Fits In At The Country Club
June 22, 2011
This summer my four-year-old daughter is going to a summer camp at a local country club a few mornings each week. I'm not a member of the club, as my bank account isn't ritzy enough. That's too bad, as from what I've seen of the independently wealthy lifestyle -- lounge around poolside with other independently wealthy types and sip down mai-tais -- I think I could get used to it.
Anyway, the point of this is I've driven our TSX Sport Wagon to the club, and it seems right at home in the parking lot among other high-end cars and SUVs. (Admittedly, the "Prii" in the photo aren't very flashy, though I guess they're somewhat representative. The white car next to the TSX (gold star if you indentify it) is a bit more special.)
I don't think I would feel this way if it was the regular TSX. Sure, it would fit in OK, but it's just not very special. The wagon is more hip. That in itself is funny because traditionally wagons were the appliances of the auto world. Maybe it's just because I like wagons.
