Acura TSX 2008 : A Passionate Performer

Hi Friends,

For all of you who have been waiting for me to write this latest Auto buzz, here I am, with the Honda Acura TSX. The Acura TSX is an automobile manufactured by Honda, introduced in April 2003, it was sold only in the United States and Canada but from the 2009 model year on, will be avalable also in Mexico. Sold in North America under the Acura name, it filled the gap as Acura’s 4-door, entry-level sedan when the Integra sedan was discontinued in 2001. The TSX is badge engineered from the CL-series Honda Accord (or European Accord) sold in Europe, Japan and Australia. However, the TSX had a restyled interior and different suspension tuning when it was introduced. The interior is now standardized for all three markets. In the Australian & New Zealand markets, Honda sells the TSX as the Accord Euro, a smaller mid-size car, where the USDM Accord is sold in the large car category. As of 2008, the TSX is the smallest sedan in the Acura model line, other than the Civic-based CSX sold only in Canada.


  • Ranked best resale value in the Sedan category in CNN’s “Best Resale Value Cars” article on November 29, 2006.
