Acura TSX Sport Wagon
The Acura TSX Sport Wagon is a sports-oriented van with a wide range of standard options and spacious space. As a result, the car is both sporty and at the same time practical. The car was developed by engineers of luxury department of Honda company. The car was presented in New York in 2010 at the automobile exhibition. The whole model range is Acura.
The appearance of the car Acura TSX Sport Wagon almost in all respects copies the look and character of its relative, Acura TSX sedan. In front of the machine only confirms this, so it can easily be taken on a sedan. Looking at the side of the Japanese, it is clear that, because of the increased arches of the wheels, it is possible to conveniently install aluminum alloy five-spoke wheels, size 17 inches. A slightly beveled roof line makes it possible for the Akura Sport Wagon to feel like a sports car.
The rearview mirrors mounted on the doors have turn signal repeaters at almost the very end, which makes them very original. The back of the car also hints at the sports qualities of the car. This is evidenced in particular by the lamps of light-amplifying equipment, voluminous lines and punches, as well as a pair of exhaust pipes. The rear door appears before us in many sizes and rises very high, thus providing maximum convenience for loading the Japanese wagon.
On the left side is the Acura nameplate, and on the right is the company logo in the middle, the name of the TSX model. The vehicle weighs about 1600 kg. The ground clearance is no less than 150 mm, which in principle is a little less than a passable car, although if we take into account that the Akura Sports car is still not a crossover, everything is in its place.
The interior of Acura TSX Sport Wagon was made of high quality material. The front seats are spacious and comfortable, but the rear passengers could be offered a little more space, especially for their feet. In front of the driver is a multifunctional three-spoke steering wheel. Behind it on the dashboard, there is a circular tachometer and a speedometer to the left of it. Side by side there are small sensors on each sensor.
The speedometer has a maximum value of 260 km/h. The engine speed sensor is also equipped with a convenient gear engaged. On the top of the central console there is an entertainment and information display, which has a convenient visor and protects it from excessive light. Below is an audio system with a small horizontal oblong simple screen and climate control.
The gear lever is very nice to hold, just like the steering wheel itself. On the driver’s side of the door there are a lot of buttons for different settings. In the interior of the car can be quite conveniently located five adults. Luggage compartment has free space – 396 liters of free space, to increase which, if necessary, is quite easy – just fold the back row of seats.
Taking into account the fact that the Acura TSX Sport Wagon is almost an exact copy of Honda Accord, it was decided to install the strongest engine of the line – a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which is able to develop 201 horsepower.
Torque is transferred from the powerful engine to the front wheels by means of automatic five-speed gearbox. Speaking of the suspension, there is an independent multilever suspension with a stabilizer of transverse stability, such as McPherson, installed here both in front and behind.
