Product Overview

Acura TSX (chassis code CL9) is a mid-size sedan in production from 2003 to 2008. It was available with a single 2.4L K24A2 inline-4 engines. Essentially, the TSX Mk1 is a version of the Accord 7 sold in Japan and Europe but not in the rest of the world. It was marketed globally.
As such, the Acura TSX is not an amazing sedan. While it has a great manual transmission and smooth engine with VTEC, the vehicle cannot compete with the greats coming out of Lexus, BMW, or Mercedes from the time.
One redeeming feature is the use of double-wishbone + multi-link suspension setup.
