Acura owners know that when it comes to comfort, functionality and style there is only one choice that delivers on all of these aspects with Acura’s standard of class and reliability. This year’s model lineup is no change from what you’ve come to know and love from premium vehicles of the past, with perhaps the exception of some cool new features, better safety ratings and improved gas mileage. The 2014 Acura TSX Sportwagen is one of these new vehicles redefining the concept of luxury car ownership.
The Sport Wagon is sleek, responsive and designed with the driver in mind. Today’s luxury car owners want versatility without sacrificing style or comfort. Acura responded with a vehicle that is functional, employing an extended SUV-esque body whose sleek lines and low stance are comparable to the super sporty TL and RLX models. The interior is comfortable and reads like a checklist of desirable features: Leather wrapped steering wheel, heated seats, electric moon roof, illuminated steering wheel controls, bluetooth integration and 8-inch multifunctional display. Bonus: discreetly mounted rear-view backup camera for added safety.
Comparing Both Vehicles
The TSX Sport Wagon’s closest competition is the 2014 Audi allroad 2.0T Premium quattro. The TSX however, outperforms the Audi in several key categories. The 2014 Acura TSX Sportwagon enjoys better fuel economy in both city and highway environments with 22 and 30 mpg respectively. The TSX also comes with a longer powertrain warranty of 72 months/ 70000 miles. Audio, cruise control and transmission settings are steering wheel mounted standard as are the heated adjustable mirrors and speed sensitive volume controls. The Acura’s turning radius is tighter and wheelbase shorter while featuring a larger cargo volume in a smaller package. Best of all the TSX comes in at over $12,000 cheaper than a comparably equipped Audi. For drivers that want station wagon functionality with sports car appeal, smooth refined lines and aerodynamic curves included, the 2014 Acura TSX Sportwagen is just what you’ve been searching for.
