With its 201-hp, 2.4-liter DOHC i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine, the TSX triumphantly combines high performance, light weight and fuel efficiency.
The 3.5-liter VTEC® V-6 engine produces an impressive 280 horsepower and 254 lbs.-ft. of torque (both SAE net), while achieving an EPA Fuel Economy Rating2 of 19 in the city and 28 on the highway.
For those who enjoy getting the most out of a high-revving engine, the TSX Special Edition model can be combined with a 6-speed close-ratio manual transmission. Six ratios make it easy to keep the TSX in your favorite part of the engine’s rev band.
Standard on both engines, the 5-speed Sequential SportShift automatic gives you the best of both worlds by combining the convenience of precise and intuitive automatic shifting with shift-for-yourself enjoyment.
Like a stereo and its speakers, a drivetrain‘s capabilities go only as far as the suspension system with which it’s paired. The TSX is equipped with front double-wishbone and rear multi-link suspensions. The double wishbone design provides superior wheel positioning and prevents damper friction during hard cornering that can result from strut designs commonly found among competitors.
Precision-crafted electric rack-and-pinion steering allows drivers to feel how the wheels are encountering the road through their fingertips.
The TSX braking system features a firm pedal feel that enables the precise deceleration and modulation demanded of high-performance driving.
The TSX body structure enhances acceleration, braking and turning response through weight-saving measures, while improved body rigidity allows the suspension to be tuned with greater precision.
Smooth engines and a rigid body are just the beginning for creating the TSX’s smooth, quiet and refined ride characteristics. The following are just a few examples of the efforts to reduce noise and vibration:
