2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon Long Term Road Test


2011 Acura TSX Wagon: Great Ride Quality

I haven't driven our long-term 2011 Acura TSX in quite a while. It's pretty boring (steering, engine, styling). But the TSX, like most Acuras, has excellent ride quality due to its great suspension.

The front has double-wishbones including stamped-steel upper A-arms, cast-iron lower A-arms, coil-over dampers, and a front stabilizer bar. The multi-link rear suspension includes stamped-steel upper A-arms, cast aluminum knuckles, double lower tubular lateral links, tubular-steel toe-control links, coil-over dampers, and a stabilizer bar.

And these components deliver a smooth well-controlled ride with terrific impact damping, and compression and rebound control. I think Acura is one of the few makes out there with a ride quality that rivals that of BMW.

And that's quite an accomplishment.
