2011 Acura TSX Tech V6 Review

 

Hi-Tech Sports Sedan

A three-quarter front view of a silver 2011 Acura TSX Tech V6

In short: A value-oriented performance V6 sedan.

Newly available for the 2010 model year, the V6 version of Acura's TSX sport sedan offers greatly improved performance with its beefed-up, 280-horsepower engine and recalibrated steering and suspension. Our tester also came fitted with the aptly-named Tech package, which adds cool features like a rearview camera and the AcuraLink communication system with real-time traffic and weather to its already roomy and well-appointed interior.

Warranty/Service: 4-year/50,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty; 6-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty
