Acura press release :
Despite the TSX being a top choice in its class, Acura has not
rested on its laurels, as a host of major updates have been made for
2011. Topping the list, the TSX receives a freshened exterior look along
with a wide array of new features and technology- with particular
attention being paid to further improving quality and cabin quietness.
In addition, significant improvements have been made to both the 2.4L
I-4 and 3.5L V-6 engines that yield improved fuel efficiency and longer
While the TSX sedan receives significant updates for 2011, the big
news is an all-new TSX variant- the TSX Sport Wagon. With crisp styling
and added utility, the TSX Sport Wagon is a smart alternative for those
considering a compact SUV. Besides offering better fuel economy, the TSX
Sport Wagon provides comparable cargo area to many compact SUVs. Plus,
the TSX Sport Wagon offers a multi-configurable rear cargo area (with
numerous hidden storage areas), a low lift-over height allowing for easy
loading and unloading, and an available power actuated tailgate.
"The all-new TSX Sport Wagon is a smart alternative for those needing
added utility," said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales. "With
the Sport Wagon, the customer simultaneously enjoys the benefits of
sports-sedan performance along with SUV-like cargo capacity."
Acura’s philosophy of smart luxury is well evidenced by the
combination of great looks, a luxury interior available with a wide
variety of technology features, and excellent safety- all for an
exceptional level of value. Thanks to this great mix of attributes, the
TSX has the largest percentage of buyers under 30 among all luxury
sedans and has remained the volume leader within its segment according
to Global Insight.
On the outside, all TSX models receive a new front fascia, revised chin
spoiler, new fog light garnish assembly and an updated grille. The
updated front end teams with new underbody panels to improve
aerodynamics. At the rear, revised taillights and a rear license plate
garnish add more visual appeal for the TSX.
With the new Sport Wagon model, sport-sedan styling and added utility
are combined- a perfect mix for those who lead an active lifestyle. For
such customers, the TSX Sport Wagon reflects their passion for
performance and athleticism while also supporting their active social
lifestyle with roomy, comfortable seating for five.
Incorporating a unique high-rigidity rear body structure with a
special hoop-style cross section, the TSX Sport Wagon simultaneously
provides excellent body strength.
The standard 17-inch 5-spoke aluminum wheels for the 2.4L 4-cylinder
models (sedan and Sport Wagon) now incorporate a machined lip on the
face of the spokes. Split 5-spoke 18-inch aluminum wheels remain
standard on the TSX sedan with 3.5L V-6 engine.
Inside, all 2011 TSX models receive a host of visual upgrades in the
form of revised styling for the center console, darker trim pieces,
brightly finished door handles, an updated parking brake handle and new
garnishes for the steering wheel. In addition, contrasting-color
stitching is new for the leather seats, door armrests and center
console. Rear seat occupants will enjoy added comfort thanks to the
addition of heating/cooling vents mounted at the rear of the center
console, and the TSX’s center console cargo compartment is now climate
The all-new TSX Sport Wagon features an even greater level of utility
over the TSX sedan. Besides offering a generous 60.5 cu-ft of rear
cargo area (with rear seats folded down), the wagon’s rear opening
height of approximately 28-inches allows for the stowage of bulky items
such as large boxes, furniture, bicycles, four full-size golf bags and
In addition, the Sport wagon features four hidden compartments for
out-of-sight storage. A 2.4 cu-ft storage area is cleverly located
beneath a lift-up hatch within the load floor. Smaller items can be
placed in a 0.2 cu-ft storage area (hidden by a removable panel) located
in the side panel on the driver side, or in one of two 13-inch long
storage areas near the main in-floor storage area. With a low lift-over
height of about 24-inches, loading heavy items is simplified. For
increased security, standard is a retractable cover that prevents rear
cargo items from being seen should a passer-by look into the rear
Even with the second row seat in use, there is generous cargo space
available in the Sport Wagon. The rear seats have a 60/40 fold-down
design, so one section can be lowered to generate more cargo room while
the other section can remain in the up position to accommodate a rear
seat passenger. Or, both seats can be folded down to attain the maximum
cargo area replete with a load-flat floor that is nearly 70-inches long.
As expected, the Sport Wagon incorporates a variety of tie-down hooks
for keeping cargo items secure.
The TSX Sport Wagon’s 60.5 cu-ft (rear seats folded down) of rear
cargo area is more than most other wagon in the category- including the
BMW 3 Series (54.7 cu-ft) and the Audi A4 (56.5 cu-ft). The TSX Sport
Wagon also rivals (or beats) the cargo capacity of some compact SUVs.
Thus, the Sport Wagon is a smart alternative for those who are
considering the purchase of a compact SUV- but who value the better fuel
economy and the performance of a sports sedan.
Acura is known for its outstanding array of user relevant technology,
and the 2011 TSX further expands on this concept. New for 2011, the TSX
with available Technology Package now includes an LED backlit full VGA
navigation screen (that generates 400-percent higher resolution than
before), improved navigation system functions (faster performance,
improved search ability and expanded map coverage), Song By Voice™ (SBV)
user interface, a 60-gigabyte hard disk drive (HDD), and the ability to
download 15-gigabytes of personal music to the TSX’s HDD. With the
ability to store more than 3,500 songs*, there is no longer a need to
carry around bulky CDs.
Acura has always put much emphasis on building an interior that is
exceptionally quiet, and for 2011 the TSX has even greater cabin
serenity thanks to items such as a new acoustic glass front windshield,
even thicker side glass, increased use of sound-deadening insulation,
improved floor mats and new underfloor covers.
The 2011 TSX remains fun to drive thanks to two powerful engine
choices; a spirited 2.4L inline four cylinder engine and a torquey 3.5L
V-6. For 2011, both engines receive numerous improvements to reduce
internal operating friction which help improve fuel economy and increase
engine life. As a result, the friction reduction measures are a
significant element to improve fuel economy as evidenced by improvements
in the EPA city, highway and combined fuel economy for both the 2.4L
I-4 and the 3.5L V-6 engines.

New automatic transmission programming helps maximize the engine
output by allowing for Shift Hold Control during cornering along with
"smart shift" functionality that allows for semi-manual operation when
in Drive- not just when in Sport Mode. In addition, the Sequential
SportShift 5-speed automatic transmission now features a fluid warmer
that helps improve shift quality, transmission durability and engine
fuel economy for TSX owners who live in colder climates.
