What is it? Acura has introduced a wagon version of its well-rated TSX sedan. Rather than follow the Acura ZDX and Honda Crosstour with slope-backed hatches, the TSX is a true wagon.
As the name suggests, the "sport wagon" builds on the strengths of the sedan- namely powertrain, fuel economy, fit and finish, front-seat comfort, and crash-test results--by simply adding increased rear cargo capacity.
The TSX wagon features a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with a five-speed automatic transmission. The 2011 specifications were not announced, but this powertrain generates 201 horsepower.
Standard equipment will include leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, moonroof, and Bluetooth connectivity. Notable available equipment includes a next-generation navigation system with real-time traffic and radar weather mapping. To be also offers is a premium, surround-sound stereo.
What's new or notable? Acura cites an estimated 30 mpg highway fuel economy rating, noting that purchase price and operating costs are among the attractions for this near-lux line. We got 25 mpg overall in our four-cylinder TSX sedan, with an impressive 35 mpg on the highway.
When will it be available? Fall 2010.
