The Acura TSX: A New Perspective on Driving

By: Aidanbusbee
The new 2009 Acura TSX will once again make you long for the road! Set for sale in April of 2008, the new Acura TSX comes fully redesigned and ready for the streets. This luxury sport sedan offers demanding drivers everything they want and a whole lot more they didn't even know they wanted!

We all want to feel safe and secure and the 2009 Acura TSX ensures that there'll be no question when it comes to safety! With anti lock brakes, stability control, and a full array of air bags to protect everyone in the vehicle; the entire car full is as safe as can be. But the 2009 Acura TSX takes it a step further, offering more than the typical family car. It also provides the bit of "edge" that consumers are looking for!

When redesigning the new 2009 Acura TSX, advanced safety features were only the beginning. Power and performance were on the forefront of the engineers' mind and because of such the new Acura TSX also features a 2.4 liter inline 4 cylinder engine capable of reaching 201 horse power and 172 lb-ft torque! The new engine will distribute power across a wider range of rpms, which when combined with the increased torque, should provide a greater feeling of power and control for the driver. With these adjustments to the engine, the Acura TSX is expected to receive up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway.

The 2009 Acura TSX takes advantage of the 2.2 liter i-DTEC clean turbodiesel engine allowing Acura to provide an even more "environmentally friendly" option for their newest model due to the advanced Nox emissions reduction system. The new engine is enhanced so that it doesn't require any urea additives to meet emission standards.

Two transmission options (5-speed automatic and 6-speed manual) will be available with both the 2009 Acura TSX: the 2.4 liter engine and the i-DTEC engine. The automatic Acura TSX will come with the added feature of steering wheel paddle shifters for optional manual shifting.

As part of the revamping process the 2009 Acura TSX was made larger than previous designs. To increase stability and control the new TSX will have a 3.0-inch greater width, a 2.6-inch wider track and a 1.3-inch longer wheelbase than the current TSX. In addition, the length will grow by 2.4 inches.

Traditional Acura luxury is evident in the 2009 Acura TSX, but it offers more than ever before. This model has a USB port music interface and an optional tech package. The optional technology package includes: a navigation system, real time weather and traffic reporting, and 10 speaker premium sound system with DVD-audio capabilities. Another "advancement" that the 2009 Acura TSX offers is Honda's Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure that reduces the accident impact on passengers.

Drivers and passengers of the 2009 Acura TSX will also enjoy a power moon roof, 17-inch alloy wheels, Xenon High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights, heated front seats, leather upholstery, automatic climate control, satellite radio and HandsFreeLink (Bluetooth) wireless connectivity; a navigation system with voice activation is optional.

Whether you're looking for a safe, fuel efficient family 4 door, an edgy and sporty sedan, or a luxurious comfortable ride, the choice is the same; the new 2009 Acura TSX!
