2013 Acura TSX Special Edition 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I got the TSX SE primarily because of an agressive lease deal. Overall it's s a really fun car in search of being a really great car. While the chassis is willing and the interior is very attractive (in SE trim), the four cylinder drivetrain and lack of the technology package (on the SE) leaves me wanting.
It's been awhile since I had driven an Acura. The recent "beak" phase in their styling department is thankfully and slowly becoming a travesty best left as a faded memory. The TSX's styling is crisp and attractive from pretty much every angle. The SE trim only adds to this, especially on the interior. From the red accents to the anthracite headliner, it is a very attractive package.
Sharp handling and styling. Very attractive interior in the SE (especially with the black over red suede and red stitching). The transmission's sport mode and paddle shifters go a long way to improving an otherwise average drivetrain.
Base drivetrain is just adequate. Gas mileage is not on par with newer offerings. A six speed automatic would have helped with both the performance and gas mileage.
