- "Lacking vitality-sapping 'ute elements like a jacked-up ride height, it features virtually the same efficiency and capable handling as the TSX sedan on which it's based in addition to a spacious and versatile cargo area." -- Left Lane News
- "If the idea of a sporty, practical, affordable luxury car seems like one big oxymoron, that may be because you have yet to meet the 2013 Acura TSX. In fact, a big part of the compact TSX lineup's appeal is that this one model seems to check so many important boxes." -- Edmunds (2013)
- "The standard wagon model has just about everything else you could want in an upscale wagon at a very aggressive price. If a Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen is too mundane and the Audi Allroad too pricey, the Acura TSX Sport Wagon is a fine choice." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- "What a nice little wagon. The four-cylinder is smooth, smooth, smooth and the power is a bit more than adequate. Comfortable seats, good driving position, smooth gearbox and quick steering--what's not to like? Too many buttons on the center console stack? Hmmm. Maybe." -- AutoWeek (2011)
