Used Car: 2014 Acura TSX Review

Review Last Updated: 7/22/15

The 2014 Acura TSX offers poised handling, a comfortable ride and lots of standard features, but it has a tight back row and a cluttered dashboard, critics said.

Powering the 2014 Acura TSX is a four-cylinder engine, which auto writers said produces quick acceleration. Still, some test drivers preferred the additional power provided by the available V6 engine. A five-speed automatic transmission is standard, and an available six-speed manual earned praise for its smooth shifter and easy-to-engage clutch pedal. The base model TSX earns an EPA-estimated 22/31 mpg city/highway, which is typical for the class. According to automotive journalists, the TSX has good ride comfort and poised handling.

Reviewers said the 2014 TSX has a good-looking cabin built with high-quality materials. They found the front seats accommodating, but thought the rear seats have poor legroom. The Acura TSX comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, a climate-controlled center console, heated front seats, leather seats, a seven-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, a USB port, an auxiliary input jack and a power moonroof. Available features include a 10-speaker Acura/ELS surround-sound audio system, satellite radio, navigation and a rearview camera. Auto writers said the TSX's dashboard is cluttered with buttons, making audio and climate controls difficult to decipher. With 14 cubic feet of space, the TSX has pretty good trunk room for the class.

Other Cars to Consider

Auto writers said the 2014 Buick Verano has a composed, quiet ride and a high-end cabin. Reviewers also noted that a powerful turbocharged engine is available. Additionally, the Verano has slightly more trunk space than the TSX.

The 2014 BMW 2-Series earns better fuel economy than the TSX. Test drivers appreciated its powerful turbocharged engine, athletic handling and comfortable ride. They added that its tech features are user-friendly and its cabin is stylish.
