The Acura TSX remains unchanged for 2008, with the only notable addition being an MP3-compatabile audio system.
Acura has done a marvelous job of blending a fun-to-drive vehicle with a practical compact sedan for their entry-level 2008 TSX. Its wide grille and modern headlights provide a distinct look that is consistent with Acura's design motifs. The TSX's low base price belies its well-equipped nature, with such standard features as xenon headlights, heated exterior mirrors, XM satellite radio, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
The manual transmission has a short throw and the action is remarkably direct for a front-wheel drive vehicle. The TSX's four-wheel disc brakes offer wonderful stopping power, and the ABS circuitry come in handy when gravel or other road debris appears mid-corner. With standard traction control and vehicle stability assist, the TSX swings through corners with precision.

The TSX cockpit is a showcase for Acura. The DVD-based optional navigation system is not only one the easiest to use on the market (with or without the voice recognition), it is also one of the best integrated. The leather steering wheel is the perfect size and it holds both audio and cruise controls. The 360-watt sound system is terrific as well. Every TSX comes with front, side and curtain air bags. A remote keyless entry system is very handy.
