From 2003 all the way to 2014, USA and Canada enjoyed the presence of the Acura TSX on the roads. The Touring Sportscar eXperimental was meant to be an American iteration of the Honda Accord made for the European, Japanese, Australian, and South African markets. It enjoyed the similar styling and features from its Honda counterpart, making it a worthy car for an upscale sporty feel. By 2013, Honda added the Technology Package for some added benefits that can improve your overall driving experience. Here are some of the things that you can expect from it:
Japanese sedans are known to be popular choices for people wanting to drive an economical vehicle on the road. These cars pack substantial power to get things going while the engine does not go very thirsty on fuel. Beyond the wallet-friendly performance, the car can easily seat five individuals without being strained. Of course, you should not expect a rumbling V8 block with guns blazing through the highway. Instead, you will be able to enjoy a quiet ride and a little bit of oomph as you step on the gas pedal.
The Acura TSX with the Technology Package is a step up from the base model. This can be availed with either of the two existing engine options. The 2.4-liter inline 4 is capable of producing 201 horses with 170 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the 3.5-liter V6 block can provide the car 280 horses with 254 lb-ft of torque. These engines are then mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission that directs the power to the front wheels.
While driving the TSX can be a lot of fun, there will always be challenges on the road. One of these is finding the best routes to your destination. Going old school with paper maps can be quite an experience to the uninitiated. But with all the gadgets that can be integrated into vehicles these days, it is not that unusual to have a built-in navigation system in your car. Acura included this in the TSX Technology Package. With this feature, you can have a real-time update on your current location, possible routes, and some other factors that can help you make informed decisions as you travel to your destination. Aside from that, you will also find the back-up camera useful. It can provide a better view of what\'s behind your car so you can properly back-up without hitting anything.
As you sit snuggly and drive the TSX, you will soon realize that there are other components meant to make you more comfortable. You can be playing your favorite cruising tunes through the Acura/ELS surround sound system with a 15-gigabyte hard drive so you can have over 3,000 songs ready on deck. More than that, you can enjoy these tracks throughout your trip as they are projected from the 10-speaker system that includes tweeters, midrange and surround speakers, and a sub woofer. The right driving vibe will be further supplemented by the GPS-linked temperature control. It can adjust the interior climate and area of focus through the help of the solar sensor rigged to your air-conditioning system.
