Acura unveiled the TSX Sport Wagon at the 2010 New York Auto Show . The car will join the current TSX line-up and will go on sale in the late fall. According to Acura, the new TSX Sport Wagon is the right car for those seeking luxury, utility and fuel economy.
The 2011 TSX Sport Wagon is powered by a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine that delivers a total of 201 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque (the sedan version also gets a V6 engine). The engine is mated to a Sequential SportShift 5-speed automatic transmission and has a fuel economy of 30 mpg. Its obvious competition is the Audi A4 Avant with a 2.0L, 4 cylinder engine producing 211hp and the Cadillac CTS wagon with a 3.6L, V6 engine producing 263hp. Of course, we really don’t think that the Cadillac can be considered competition, but we do believe that Acura may think so.
The new TSX will be available with all the latest technologies including: Acura Navigation System with an all-new 8-inch full VGA high-resolution color display, AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic and Weather, Acura/ELS Surround Premium Audi o System and a hard disk drive (HDD) for media storage, a power glass moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seats, a premium sound system, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, and USB port and AUX jack music interface.
UPDATE 12/08/10: It took longer than any of us would’ve liked but finally, Acura has released the price tag for the 2011 TSX Sport Wagon. If you’ve been interested in this car for a while, you’ll be happy to know that the Honda-owned automaker is sticking a reasonable price tag of $31,820. Not too shabby.
Press release after the jump.
