With a newly available V6, the 2010 Acura TSX can be a good choice if you’re shopping for a small but modern sport sedan. That’s because the car combines its performance with an uplevel ownership experience. One particular highlight: A neatly engineered cabin with high-end content and a high-tech appearance.
The 2010 Acura TSX is a premium compact sedan that shares its platform with the Honda Accord. The TSX offers seating for five and a non-traditional lineup of trim levels. The entry model is the “TSX,” and for additional features, you can choose from the TSX with a Technology Package, a TSX V6 and a TSX V6 with a Technology Package. Front-wheel drive is standard for all models. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a five-speed automatic is a no-cost option.
The new V6 engine for the 2010 Acura TSX is complemented by an upgraded suspension.
Acura’s distinctive shield-style grille is front and center with the TSX, which also has swept-back front lights and a sculpted hood. Those cues combine with shaved fenders to give the car a dynamic presence on the road. As the TSX passes by, other drivers can get a good view of the standard dual exhaust outlets.
The 2010 TSX comes standard with many upscale features. These include high-intensity discharge headlights, fog lights, a power moonroof, 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and heated exterior mirrors with integrated LED turn signals and, on the passenger side, a reverse tilt-down function. In the TSX V6 trim, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels are standard.
The cabin for the TSX has a dual-cockpit look. For that, credit goes to the wing-like trim that flows outward from the center stack. The trim also separates the lower part of the dashboard from the molded upper level. This provides the setting for a bold instrument-panel hood and a long ridge that tapers from a separate awning over the infotainment screen. Moving to the back, a 60/40-split folding rear seat is standard. So is a trunk capacity of 12.6 cubic feet.
A high level of content is also standard for the TSX cabin. Included are perforated-leather seats, heated front seats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel with a tilt-and-telescoping column.
The 2010 Acura TSX offers two powerplants. The standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is a bit underpowered for the segment. It produces 201 horsepower and up to 172 horsepower. You get noticeably more output with the car’s optional 3.5-liter V6. When equipped with that engine, the TSX delivers 280 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. The four-cylinder engine is available with a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. The V6 is paired solely with the automatic. For all models, front-wheel drive is standard.
The four-cylinder TSX can achieve EPA ratings of 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway with its automatic transmission.
Standard technologies for the Acura TSX include Bluetooth for hands-free calling and a premium audio system. That seven-speaker setup provides an AM/FM stereo, CD player, auxiliary input jack, 360 watts of power and a separate subwoofer.
A rearview camera is bundled with the car’s available Technology package. This also features a navigation system with an enhanced display, voice recognition, AcuraLink traffic/weather services and an Acura/ELS Surround premium audio system. It comes with 10 speakers, a 415-watt amplifier, a six-disc CD/DVD changer and satellite radio.

User Reviews for 2010 Acura TSX
by FooFoo on May 17, 2020
Overall Rating for 2010 TSX
"The 2010 Acura TSX is very reliable. To keep it reliable service must be kept up to date. Leather seats wear well especially for a 10 year old vehicle. To use the GPS feature requires a tutorial to use voice activation."
Leather seats wear well. Driver seat belt has relaxed and will not always retract after unbuckling. Would like front floor mats to clean better.
Exterior looks amazing. However the front bumper is so low it scraps against all parking bumps.
Has always performed well.
Would not want small children to be eating in my car.
The simple service sessions are reasonably priced. The more intense service sessions are higher priced but worth it to keep it running well.
