5 national listings
Avg. Price: $17,248

The 2009 Acura TSX 6-spd adds a smooth-shifting 6-speed manual to the 2.4-liter DOHC inline-four engine, boosting torque to 172 ft-lbs at 4,400 RPM in this front-wheel-drive sports sedan. Horsepower remains at 201, with fuel economy actually decreasing to 20/28 mpg. The sedan seats four, with 60/40 split-folding rear seats that open onto a 12.6-cubic-foot trunk. A fold-down armrest holds more storage options. A more-rigid chassis, wider stance, and refinements to the double-wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension are aimed at enhancing the sporty feel of the TSX 6-spd.

Not yet tested for safety, the 2009 TSX 6-spd comes fully packed to keep your family protected. Traction and stability control, as well as 17-inch wheels with all-season tires, keep a grip on the road. 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes feature electronic brakeforce distribution. Dual front-side airbags have passenger deactivation, and there are side curtain airbags for both rows. Rounding out the safety profile are automatic xenon headlamps, daytime running lights, foglights, mirrors with turn signals, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a tire monitor.

Not content with only power windows, locks, and heated mirrors, the TSX 6-spd provides 8-way and 4-way power front seats with driver's memory settings, a power sunroof, remote entry, a garage opener, a trip computer, and wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls for the CD/MP3 player. An MP3 jack allows you to attach an iPod, and a satellite radio trial is also included. Tilt and telescopic steering, side mirrors that reverse-tilt, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, a temperature display and compass, and two front power outlets provide extra convenience. Luxury comes with the dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, leather upholstery and trim, and alloy accents.

6-spd w/ Tech Pkg

Avg. Price: $16,740

More high-tech gadgetry comes with the 2009 Acura TSX 6-spd with Tech Package. The first notable feature is the voice-activated and touchscreen navigation system, equipped with real-time traffic updates and a Zagat restaurant guide. The second Tech Package feature is a 10-speaker surround sound audio system with a 6-CD changer, MP3 input, and satellite radio.

Otherwise, this front-wheel-drive sports sedan does not vary from the non-tech version. Standard equipment includes a full power setup, remote entry, a garage remote, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, power mirrors with a reverse-tilt feature, a sunroof, and an 8-way power driver's and 4-way power passenger seat. The driver's seat comes with memory settings. Leather adorns the seats and steering wheel, with alloy trim on the center console. Heated front seats, a trip computer, a temperature display and compass, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, tilt and telescopic steering, and intermittent wipers are all part of the 2009 TSX 6-spd with Tech Package. Front legroom is spacious, at 42 inches, but rear legroom suffers, with only 34. The rear seats split-fold onto a 12.6-cubic-foot trunk.

Under the hood is a 201-hp, 2.4-liter iVTEC DOHC inline-four engine with a 6-speed manual transmission. The sedan sits on a double-wishbone front and rear multilink suspension and rides on 17-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires. The tires come with a pressure monitor. In terms of safety, you get 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, traction and stability control, front and rear stabilizer bars, and dual front-side and side curtain airbags for each row. The front passenger bag has deactivation sensors. In the lighting department, the 2009 TSX 6-spd with Tech Package offers foglights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatic headlamps, xenon HID lights, and daytime running lights. Mirrors with turn signals are also standard. No options are offered.

Base

Avg. Price: $17,063

This sporty sedan trim gets a new 16-valve, 2.4-liter, DOHC iVTEC inline-four engine, matched to a 5-speed shiftable automatic with controls on the steering wheel. The powertrain in the 2009 Acura TSX Base puts out 201 hp and 170 ft-lbs of torque at 4,300 RPM and averages 21/30 mpg. The front-wheel-drive sedan gets a stiffer body, enhanced reinforcement, and tweaks to its double-wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension. A wider profile allows more hiproom, though legroom remains the same (42 inches in the front, 34 in the back).

Although it's a base trim, it's still an Acura, and it offers a boatload of features. The 2009 TSX Base offers a full power setup, which includes remote entry, a power sunroof, heated mirrors that reverse-tilt when backing up, a garage remote, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, and an 8-way driver's and 4-way power passenger seat with driver's memory settings. Also included are Bluetooth, a 7-speaker CD/MP3 player with iPod jack and satellite radio, leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, and alloy and leather accents. On the dash you'll find a trip computer, tachometer, temperature readout, and compass. There are cupholders front and back and two front power outlets. Rear seats split-fold 60/40 and feature an armrest that doubles as a storage compartment. The trunk holds 12.6 cubic feet.

Safety is not neglected in the 2009 TSX Base. 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes come with electronic brakeforce distribution. Traction and stability control, dual front-side and side curtain airbags for both rows, and front and rear stabilizer bars are also standard. Adding further safety are mirrors with turn signals, 17-inch alloy wheels and all-season tires, a tire monitor, automatic headlights, foglights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and xenon HID headlamps. The only option is the Technology Package, which adds a real-time navigation system and an upgraded sound system.

Base w/ Tech Pkg

Avg. Price: $17,289

The 2009 Acura TSX Base with Tech Package upgrades the Base trim by adding a 6-CD changer, complete with MP3 input, satellite radio, and a 10-speaker surround sound system. Audio controls are located on the steering wheel, along with the cruise control and paddle shifters. Also included in the Tech Package is a touchscreen and voice-activated navigation system that features a Zagat restaurant guide.

The front-wheel-drive sports sedan seats four, with 60/40 split-folding rear seats and a folding armrest/storage compartment. The trunk holds 12.6 cubic feet. Safety ratings have yet to be released, but Acura rarely skimps in this department. A stiffer overall body has been added this year. Already standard are traction and stability control, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, 17-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, front and rear stabilizer bars, and dual front-side and side curtain airbags for both rows. A tire monitor and mirrors with turn signals are also standard. Lighting the way are xenon HID headlamps, automatic headlights, and foglights. An auto-dimming rearview mirror helps with glare at night.

Powering all this is a 16-valve, 2.4-liter DOHC inline four and 5-speed shiftable automatic transmission. The powertrain delivers 201 hp and 170 ft-lbs of torque at 4,400 RPM. Living up to its luxury trappings, the 2009 TSX Base with Tech Package offers all power features - windows, locks, and heated mirrors - as well as remote entry, a garage remote, a sunroof, a trip computer, and 8-way and 4-way adjustable front seats, with driver's memory settings. Also on hand are leather upholstery, leather and alloy trim on the steering wheel and console, heated front seats, automatic climate control, and Bluetooth. Convenience features include a temperature readout, compass, tachometer, tilt and telescopic steering, and intermittent wipers. There are no available options.
