Here, we’re all big fans of the moment Acura TSX, a version of a very good mood three times winner of the top 10 of the first generation, anyway. For larger, production, second in the TSX is shown in the past year, the camp is divided. Some of us believe that even if the car is new and better (but only 130 pounds heavier), the body of the motor at high speed 201-horsepower four-cylinder carried more than 2.4 L is still a good game , which offers an excellent combination of strength and prudence, especially with the provision to six speeds. Others believe that the new content and size, Acura has put a lot of horses and four-wheel drive or rear.
The first group, nothing has changed the cylinder in the TSX. He is always happy to front-wheel drive luxury installed, almost always. For the power-hungry group, TSX-horsepower V-6 straight loss when it goes on sale in July. With the fall in the same 3.5-liter V-6 base TL-TSX set to 280 horsepower and 254 lb-ft of torque is the smallest car Acura four-door sports in a very fast, but moving with the shovel five-speed automatic transmission.
How long is it? Well, we have to wait until the test track to say for certain. Acura claim to be able to reach 60 mph in seven seconds. But since we reached level 60 in 6.7 seconds with the TSX is equipped with the last user of four cylinders checked, we are confident that Acura is waaaaaay down stupid opinion. Stay with us. Keep your hands on the wheel, Unfortunately, as they say, with power comes responsibility. And in this case, the driver must be responsible for another thrust, V-6 models add over 200 pounds of meat, most of whom live on the front wheels. Back weight distribution 62/38-percent before, the recipe is pretty big. In fact, as the previews lead our mountain road through the most difficult in Malibu, California, with almost no room sink and fences, we are turning over in the gut a few minutes. We realized that the V-6 model is not a four-cylinder engine tossable Thus, while the country burned 18-inch wheels (an inch four-cylinder) and a high pressure Acura. torque control, however, well run, considering how much energy is being exported to the front axle. Finally, it is necessary to drive the front wheels, too.
The brakes worked a bit with a new cylinder, booster, forcing the rear brake pads. Pedal, but showed some signs of an inch, the first trip, and getting worse during the fight very hard for us. In addition, a significant attenuation. Otherwise, however, remained unchanged TSX. Only external changes associated with these wheels, front slightly different V-6 tags in the trunk. Inside, a new system with active noise cancellation, no difference. Which is very good for us. Stereo comfort, spacious interiors and well-equipped TSX is one of the strongest applications, using mostly dark colors package detection technology features of the solar system, air conditioning, ELS 10 – speaker surround sound navigation, traffic reports real time.
